We're all already aware of the fact that the Starbucks Frappuccino is probably one of the best iced drinks you can order. While all of the classics are delicious, here are 10 new ways to enhance your Frappuccino experience and indulge in new flavours! All you have to do is ask your barista to add a few things, and then wait for him/her to spell your name wrong before enjoying your new Frap.
1. Cinnamon Toast Crunch
I kid you not. Your favourite childhood cereal (or adulthood cereal.. who's judging?) has now come to life in a frappuccino! Here's how to order one:
Order a cream base
Add apple juice
2 pumps of cinnamon dolce syrup
2 pumps of caramel syrup
BAM! Breakfast in a drink.
For all of you Nutella lovers that know that there is a difference between Nutella and chocolate (because lets be real, they are not at all the same), this one is for you! Order a regular coffee frap and add these ingredients:
2 pumps mocha syrup
1 pump hazlenut syrup
blend in whipped cream
Voila! You can thank me later.
3. Red Velvet
Yes, red velvet. For those of you who think red velvet is overrated, trust us, even you're going to want to try this. Prepare to be amazed!
Order a half white chocolate mocha / half regular mocha frappuccino
Add 2 pumps raspberry syrup
Tip: Add whipped cream!
4. Banana Split
No time to sit down for ice cream? Your dreams have come true with this Banana Split Frappuccino.
Order a strawberry & cream frap
Add vanilla bean powder & some java chips
Add a banana
Top with whipped cream
If you need a little extra somethin' somethin' ask for mocha and caramel drizzle!
All time personal favourite. Behold the Oreo Frappuccino! If you don't like chocolate, this one isn't for you (lets be serious... who doesn't like chocolate?).
- Order a double chocolate chip frap
- Ask for white mocha instead of regular mocha sauce
- Top with whipped cream
Tip: If you're a chocolate fanatic, ask for chocolate whipped cream!
Women will lead five of Quebec's eight largest cities following the 2021 municipal elections.
The biggest headline of the night may have been Valérie Plante's triumph over old foe Denis Coderre in Montreal, but across the province, the faces of municipal politics have become more gender-balanced.
According to the latest counts and projections, France Bélisle (Gatineau), Catherine Fournier (Longueuil), Évelyne Beaudin (Sherbrooke) and Julie Dufour (Saguenay) are all also on their way to their respective (and figurative) city hall corner offices.
In Quebec City, it seemed for a while like Marie-Josée Savard would join them. Multiple outlets had even called the election for her until the vote count for her opponent surged into the evening. Bruno Marchand ultimately claimed victory.
Mayor Plante commented on the historic nature of her second mandate in her victory speech Sunday night.
"Four years ago, Montrealers elected the first woman mayor in the history of the City of Montreal," she said.
"Tonight, they told us again, 'yes, this mayor, we're going to continue to work with her, we trust her!'"
This year, for the first time, Montrealers will have two women leading the city, as Projet Montréal's Dominique Ollivier is set to take over as president of the Executive Committee.
Last year, Starbucks made an average of more than 50,000 Pumpkin Spice Lattes every day at locations across Montreal during the fall season — this flavour has become a signal of the season and an iconic tradition for nearly two decades. More than that, it's become a cultural phenomenon.
Strolling through a pumpkin patch with a PSL in hand (hot or iced, whatever the weather calls for) is arguably the most iconic way to celebrate National Pumpkin Day. Bring your pals along for a photoshoot in your coziest knits.
Check out Ferme Marineau — there's bowling (with gourds as pins), a pumpkin house, "straw lounges" and more. Admission is $4 for ages 4 and up.
If you're in the mood to get creative — or you're nutty for milk alternatives — try customizing your order. Give the Oat Honey Latte a try, top your Chai Tea Latte with Pumpkin Cream or indulge in the flavours of fall by adding some cinnamon dolce syrup to steamed apple juice.
Did you know that the PSL — Starbucks' most popular seasonal beverage of all time — was almost named the "Fall Harvest Latte?" Born in 2003 at the Starbucks headquarters in Seattle, Washington, the original PSL was only available in 100 locations. When testing out the initial recipe, the Starbucks research and development team poured signature espresso shots on top of real pumpkin pies.
Alright, so you've picked the ultimate pumpkin — now it's time to decorate. Carve it into a jack-o'-lantern or jazz it up with paint (perhaps with the help of some Pinterest inspiration). Add to the ambiance by playing a scary movie in the background and sipping on a PSL.

It just makes sense to honour today with a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. After all, it is the harbinger of the fall season. Happy National Pumpkin Day! Now go out and get celebrating — your PSL awaits.
The government is in the process of filling a Service Canada job bank and it's advertising salaries of between $61,152 and $65,887.
On an online recruitment page, the Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) office says it needs to fill 45 benefits officer and program officer positions in Quebec and encourages qualified individuals to apply.
The only education requirement is a high school diploma.
While benefits officers review and process employment insurance applications, the government describes a wide range of duties for program officers, including coordination with local stakeholders regarding services from the ESDC.
Service Canada says it has EI processing centres and "program branches" in Montreal, Laval, Boucherville, Drummondville, Thetford Mines, Shawinigan, Quebec City and Saguenay, but that it may assign alternative workplaces to applicants who don't live in these areas.
In addition to a high school diploma, Service Canada is looking for applicants who have experience totalling six months "in delivering services or programs to the general public" or "interpreting and applying legislation or policies."
The language requirement is either French-only or French and English, depending on the position, according to the recruitment page.
