Starbucks rolls out Mini Frappuccino


More than 20 years after its introduction, the Frappuccino is getting a makeover.

Starbucks has rolled out a smaller serving size of the frozen blended favorite.

Called the Mini Frappuccino, it will only be available for a limited time, until supplies last at participating Starbucks, the company announced.

Officials said the rollout is in response from customers who wanted a smaller drink size.

The mini is only 10 ounces compared to the smallest size, called tall, which is 12 ounces, USA Today reported.
