Franzese Announces Artisan Frappe Mixes and Exclusive Spiced Chai NORDSTROM Collaboration

Franzese Announces a Bold Rebrand and Direct-to-Consumer Launch: A New Chapter in Gourmet Excellence

Novi, Michigan — November 21, 2023 —Franzese, a brand celebrated for bringing the authentic flavors of old-world gourmet to American homes, is proud to announce a significant rebrand and launch its new direct-to-consumer website. This strategic evolution is designed to meet the growing needs of culinary enthusiasts nationwide, who seek the quality and authenticity that Franzese has become known for.

I was sent some of Franzese’s line to try out and I am extremely impressed. The quality and taste of their frappe mixes, chai and Nordstrom espresso are extremely premium and delicious. I can not wait to entertain my family this Christmas with all of their products. It’s so wonderful to have these frappe mixes especially as I usually spend a fortune at the coffee shop on them.  Now I can easily make my own for a fraction of the cost and they taste better too.  The mixes are so simple to use, just add milk and ice and blend.  

As for their chai, it can be served hot or frappe style. These products  are available in  varieties of 20 Oz. Bags and 10 Oz. Tins.  They make great gifts too! Add a few to a gift basket for your favorite host or hostess.
