As the weather warms up, some of our favourite summer treats are returning to convenience store shelves. These include FamilyMart's frozen frappe collaboration with Godiva, which first debuted in 2021 as part of FamilyMart's 40th anniversary celebration.

For those unfamiliar with FamilyMart frappes, the ice-blended drinks are a popular item from the convenience store’s Famima Café range. Rather than ordering the beverage like a coffee from the counter, you’ll find the frappes in the freezer section. After purchasing one, just take it to the coffee machine to fill with hot milk. The milk thaws the frozen drink into a slushie-like consistency, making it the perfect remedy for a hot day. 

This year, Godiva chocolatier and pâtissier Yannick Chevolleau has introduced a new white chocolate and strawberry frappe, which joins the original chocolate version. The latter is crafted from three types of Belgian chocolate and includes crushed chocolate chips for added texture. The new white chocolate edition, however, features a mellow sweetness complemented by a tart strawberry sauce.

Both frappes cost ¥460 and are available while stocks last. So if anybody needs us this week, we’ll be at FamilyMart.
