Zombie Frappuccino Creeps into Starbucks Cafés for Halloween
Just in time for Halloween, Starbucks is rolling out its latest Frappuccino created especially for the holiday — the Zombie Frappuccino. The new Zombie Frappuccino blended beverage has a “ghastly” green body made with Frappuccino Crème infused with flavours of tart apple and caramel and topped with pink whipped cream “brains” and red mocha drizzle.
Starbucks has celebrated Halloween in stores with special Frappuccino flavours since 2014, starting with the Franken Frappuccino blended beverage, followed by the Frappula Frappuccino in 2015 and 2016.
“When brainstorming a new Frappuccino flavour for this Halloween, we started by thinking about a Halloween party and monster mash,” says Jennica Robinson from Starbucks beverage development team. “We had already invited Frankenstein and vampires to the party, so we came up with another monster that could join the bash.”
For the flavour, Robinson returned to the monster party theme. “We thought about what you’d serve at a Halloween party, and we settled on dipped caramel apples,” she said. “It has a tart green apple flavour balanced with a smooth, sweet caramel.”
The creepy concoction is available 26-31 October in participating stores in the United States and Canada, while supplies last.
