Starbucks unveils new Caramel Waffle Cone Frappuccino

We guess Starbucks just figured "what the hell, the ice cream's gonna melt anyway" so they figured out a(nother) way for you to consume the calories you would have spent on one frozen treat, made it drinkable and half-convinced you it's "coffee," not dessert. Clever.

Just when you thought there were no more possible combinations of coffee, syrup, milk and ice, Starbucks has proved us wrong again with the introduction of their new summer-themed Frapp: the Caramel Waffle Cone. 

What's it made of? Everything you'd expect, including waffle-cone-flavored syrup (no idea how one develops a syrup that tastes like waffle cones, but that's up to the food chemists), dark caramel sauce, and toppings of whipped cream, waffle cone pieces and more dark caramel sauce. 

There's no "light" version, so bye-bye, #beachbody.
