Starbucks reinvents fruit cake as frappuccino

Can Starbucks save the fruitcake? The coffee chain is breathing new life into the much-reviled holiday dessert, reinventing it tantalizing frappuccino this weekend.

Much like a real fruitcake, the frappuccino contains a base of hazelnut creme, filled with candied fruit, nuts and spices. The frappuccino will be available through the weekend.

Just in time for National Ugly Sweater Day on Friday, an ugly sweater cookie is also joining the ranks of Starbucks' seasonal offerings.
