Starbucks and Marshawn Lynch invite fans to support empowering young people through the purchase of the new Beast Mode™ Frappuccino, available in participating Starbucks® stores beginning October 22.
Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Tuesday, Oct. 20 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Marshawn Lynch Creates Beast Mode Frappuccino
Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has teamed up with Starbucks to create his own caffeinated beverage.
Lynch's creation is called Beast Mode, a double mocha Frappuccino with a hint of mint and cream and "enough protein powder to unleash your inner Beast Mode." The drink is topped with whipped cream and finished with a purple berry drizzle and a sprinkle of matcha.
"I'd drink this before a workout," Lynch said. "You could get your buff on with this."
For every Beast Mode beverage sold, Starbucks will donate 24 cents - the same number on Lynch's jersey - to Lynch's Fam 1st Family Foundation, up to $100,000. Starbucks is also kicking off the collaboration with a $24,000 contribution to Lynch's foundation, co-founded by his cousin and Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Johnson which aims to empower and educate underprivileged inner-city youth.
"It is so important to Josh and me that these kids are able to excel in school and life against all odds," said Lynch.
The drink will be available in participating Washington state and Oakland-area stores starting Oct. 22 through the remainder of the football season.
