The Story of Kenny G and the Starbucks Frappuccino
You know Kenny G is a talented Saxophonist, but what you didn’t know, is that he may have been the brains behind the famous Starbucks Frappuccino.
In the beginning, when there existed plain boring coffee, Kenny G went to a place called Coffee Bean. Coffee Bean served him ‘a sweet, milky thing’ called blended. People were lining up the block for a taste of ‘blended’. And what they and he had, changed coffee forever. He then called up Starbucks‘ CEO Howard Schultz and told him ‘Howard, there’s this thing that they do there that’s like a milkshake or whatever.’ And then Ta-da, ‘Whatever’ was born. Well, it was called ‘Frappuccino’ or whatever.
Years later, Starbucks grew to be the coffee giant we know today and Kenny G claimed to be the maker of the Frappuccino.
And what did Starbucks think of all this ?
“Kenny is a dear friend of Starbucks and an early investor in the company. He did provide feedback on the creation of Frappuccino. That’s true … We are very appreciative of everyone, including Kenny, who’ve been a part of the success of Frappuccino, ” a spokesperson for Starbucks tells PEOPLE.
So can I get some Kenny G or some whatever to go, please?
