Roasted Marshmallow S’mores Frappuccino is a twist on classic American summer flavors inspired by s’mores. You might be thinking what’s a s’mores. A s’more is a traditional nighttime campfire treat popular in the US and Canada. It consist of a fire roasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between two pieces of graham cracker. (There’s even a National S’mores Day that is celebrated annually on 10th August)

The Roasted Marshmallow S’mores Frappuccino taste great and is great for the warm weather now.

PS: Another classic American dessert, Key Lime Pie Frappuccino will be coming soon. Looks like we are having a sweet sweet summer.

The Walking Dead season 6 finale is bullshit

*Rants and spoilers ahead. You’ve been warned*

Please excuse me for ranting here. I’m writing this after watching The Walking Dead season 6 finale. I know a lot of this are just anger and may not make sense. But to be honest, I haven’t been so pissed with a TV show for so long.

Most of you know that I’m a huge The Walking Dead fan. Like everyone, I was eagerly anticipating the introduction of Negan since Rick and gang arrived Alexandria. The show has been teasing Negan since the mid season break. And most fans know there’s only one way to introduce Negan to the world. And that is to kill a character in the show.

And this is not going to be a minor character. In the comic book, Negan killed Glenn. We don’t know if they will do the same for TV. But we know it is going to be a major character. And so everyone watched the 90 minutes season finale with much anticipation and fear. Fear that their favorite character will be killed.

But what do we get? 90 minutes of dragging. From one road block to another. But ok, its just building up to the final moment. We get it. And Negan didn’t disappoint. He is great. He’s evil yet charismatic. Absolutely great. And you know he mean business.

Then the stupid cliffhanger. Instead of showing us who was killed, all we got is the victim’s point of view and fade out. And we’ll need to wait till season 7 to find out who was killed. I know there is a need for cliffhanger to get fans excited and looking forward to the next season. But this is just too much. It’s down right insulting to all The Walking Dead fans who are following the series.

And do you know the stupid thing about this cliffhanger? It’s not going to stay a secret for long. They are going to start filming season 7 soon. And we all know that there are people stalking the set. It’s just a matter of time before someone guessed who got killed by Negan. And that news will definitely be spreading like wildfire before the start of season 7. So what’s the point of having this cliffhanger at this time and age?

Instead, why not show us who got killed in the season 6 finale? After all, there is a even bigger cliffhanger out there. What is Rick and gang going to do after that major character died? The Walking Dead completely missed the opportunity to pull the fans’ heartstring by having one of the biggest build up leading to the shocking death of a major character. It’s just stupid.

I know they are doing this for the viewership. Maybe with this cliffhanger, they might be able to get higher viewership for the season premiere like the Terminus in season 5. But this time its different. Its just insulting to ask fans to wait 6 months to find out who died. The fans deserved better treatment than this.
