The Frappula: Starbucks' scary Halloween Frappuccino inspired by vampires
Starbucks has announced the release of a special Halloween Frappuccino, available only this Wednesday, Oct. 28 through Saturday, Oct. 31.
Last year the company celebrated the spookiest day of the year with the green tea Franken Frappuccino, but this year's concoction is a little bloodier.
The Frappula Frappuccino is inspired by vampires, which is easy to see with its oozing red raspberry syrup topping. The Frappuccino itself is made with white chocolate sauce, milk and ice, and is poured on top of mocha sauce and topped with whipped cream. Red raspberry is the perfect spooky topping, as the crimson color seeps into the drink below like blood spreading through water.
Starbucks has really been amping up its Frappuccino game this year. It recently announced a protein-filled Beast Mode Frappuccino, a collaboration with Marshawn Lynch. This year also saw the release of mini Frappuccinos, the Birthday Cake Frappuccino, cookie straws and six new summer flavors that customers got to vote on.
Now there's the Halloween Frappula, and pumpkin spice is still going strong, but all this Frappuccino innovation just has us excited to see what their winter holiday offerings will be. Which we're guessing is exactly what they hoped. Congrats on nailing your target audience, Starbucks.
