We've ranked them in order based on how they tasted, starting with the worst. We've also shared some of our thoughts. And don't worry, we don't hold back.

Overall impression: "Fail." "I'm not sure." "Plain, weird and heavy."

5. Cotton Candy Frappuccino

Does the name match the taste? Absolutely!

1. Cupcake Frappuccino

Does the name match the taste? Oh yeah!

Overall impression: "French vanilla goodness." "Cupcake frozen yogurt."

At the end of the day, we were all pretty much unimpressed by the flavors. Red Velvet was a particular disappointment, especially since we all had high hopes for it. I may admit to having a grudge against Lemon Bar (it was unnecessarily messy), but I will not admit to craving a Cinnamon Roll Frappuccino. I won't. Yet...
