Today's Reason to Celebrate

October 7, 2011 was
National Frappe Day

Today is National Frappe Day! The frappe is a chilled foam-covered coffee drink that originated in Greece in the 1950s. Today, there are many different variations of this refreshing beverage.

In the United States, frappes are usually made with coffee, milk, ice, vanilla ice cream, and sugar combined in a blender. In other parts of the world fruit frappes are popular.

Some people pronounce it “frap” while others say “frah-pay," but everyone can agree on the satisfying taste of this cool, creamy coffee treat. Make your own frappe today to celebrate National Frappe Day!
