10 Of The Most Unique Starbucks Drinks Around The World

Have you tried out these cool drinks yet?

It's no secret that Starbucks is constantly on the move to innovate their gargantuan franchise with new drinks every season.  That said, the coffee chain's menu varies from all over the world, and there are certain specialty drinks specific to a country or region that may never reach our shores.

Considering traveling to a different country's a definite a no-no as of the moment, we're rounding up some of the most unique Starbucks drinks made over the years to quench your curiosity instead.

1. Cherry Pie Frappuccino 

Place of origin: Japan

What it is: Starbucks describes this scrumptious beverage as a sweet treat "made with a blended vanilla-flavored crème base, pie crumbles and cherry compote topped with whipped cream." The delicious catch? Instead of the usual lid, it's topped with a dome-shaped crust pie to serve as its "cover."
