Build LOVE ❤️ amongst our elders and children of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). The tragic incidents in the recent weeks have brought misfortune and fright to the communities of BIPOC. Now more than ever we need to take a stand and support each other.


BLAC's initiative is to support inclusive communities. We can do this by meeting someone new and engaging in a conversation where we are learning more about them and their background.

We'd like to think we are open to trying new things. But I'm sure when it comes to Starbucks we tend to gravitate towards our favorite drink. Mine is a “skinny vanilla latte with almond milk - upside down”. I order the same coffee, the same way, every single time. Though, only some of us are aware that Starbucks has a mystery drink menu that isn't on display and only some of us may feel comfortable asking for a mystery drink with separate ingredients… “just try it”.

For instance, the Skittles Frappuccino is new and it’s different and you’re out of your comfort zone. We may not feel comfortable interacting with people outside of our circle at work, in the grocery stores, at schools, or most importantly, in our community. We may even have an implicit bias against a different race or culture. You never know, the Skittles Frappicuno might become your favorite sweet treat, if you increase your exposure. Similarly, you never know who you’ve just impacted by sharing a wonderful experience.

The point is…

We’re all a mystery, full of stories and experiences. Just take a minute or so and encourage a conversation. Or simply put, try that Skittles Frappuccino for our #BLACStarbucksChallenge or try it with someone new.

How to order a Skittles Frappucino

  • Order a Venti Strawberry Crème Frappuccino

  • Ask for 4 pumps of vanilla syrup and 1 1/2 pumps of raspberry syrup

  • Ask for whipped cream on top

Note: you can also add strawberry puree on top if you wish.

It's a movement #BLACStarbucksChallenge

  1. Order a Skittles Frappuccino or any other mystery Starbucks drink

  2. Post on Social Media (IG, Facebook, TikTok, etc.) and hashtag #BLACStarbucksChallenge

  3. Don't forget to follow Building Love Amongst Cultures on social media

Because of this challenge, I look to try something new and/or different at least once a week. No matter if it‘s a different type of conversation topic or a different type of food/drink!
