'Beast Mode' Frappuccino Named for Marshawn Lynch



    'Beast Mode' Frappuccino Named for Marshawn Lynch
    Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch lent his nickname to Starbucks' new "Beast Mode" frappuccino. Proceeds will benefit inner-city kids in his hometown of Oakland.

    Football star and Oakland, California, native Marshawn "Beast Mode" Lynch has lent his name to a new coffee creation at Starbucks.

    The Seahawks running back sampled several flavor profiles before deciding on his signature offering, a double mocha Frappuccino with mint, cream and protein powder, topped with whipped cream, "purple berry drizzle" and matcha green tea powder, according to the coffee chain.

    Lynch sports a Golden State Warriors cap in the photos accompanying a Starbucks news release announcing the Beast Mode Frappuccino. The Warriors are based in Oakland.

    Proceeds from the blended coffee drink will benefit Oakland inner-city youth via Lynch's Fam 1st Family Foundation, with a donation of up to $100,000.

    "Beast Mode" hits Starbucks shops in Oakland and Washington state on Oct. 22 and will be available throughout the football season.
