Starbucks Conjures Witch’s Brew Frappuccino for Halloween
Starbucks is stirring up a new Halloween concoction this year with Witch’s Brew Frappuccino blended beverage. Participating Starbucks stores in the United States, Canada, Mexico and select markets in the Caribbean will offer the newest Halloween Frappuccino blended beverage starting today (25 October) for a limited time while supplies last.
The wicked concoction starts with a purple blend of “toad’s breath” and orange crème Frappuccino and a swirl of green “bat warts” (made with chia seeds). A topping of vanilla whipped cream and dusting of green “lizard scale” powder finishes the beverage.
“We wanted to create a flavour that you might enjoy at a Halloween party,” says Jennica Robinson from Starbucks beverage development team. “It gets a little bit of juicy-ness from the orange flavour.”
Chilling new Frappuccino beverages have become a fun Halloween tradition at Starbucks. The Franken Frappuccino blended beverage first came to life in 2014, followed by the Frappula Frappuccino blended beverage in 2015 and 2016 and Zombie Frappuccino blended beverage in 2017.
“Starbucks loves to celebrate Halloween, and each year our Frappuccino brings something different to the season,” says Robinson. “We started with Franken Frappuccino, which was inspired by an old-school horror movie. Zombie Frappuccino was like the walking dead, a little ghastly. Witch’s Brew is very fun, vibrant, bubbly, the life of the party.”
