Just like the Unicorn Frappuccino’s bizarre blue and pink colors, the Zombie Frappuccino boasts a “ghastly green” hue that’s just begging to be oversaturated with the Lo-Fi filter. Starbucks said you can expect a plastic pumpkin pail full of flavors like tart apple, caramel, and chocolate, although it doesn’t contain any coffee (it’s dead, remember?). The liquid candy bar comes topped with pink whipped cream “brains” and a drizzle of blood-like red mocha sauce. So far, it remains to be seen if wearing a costume makes it acceptable to drink.
“We thought about what you’d serve at a Halloween party, and we settled on dipped caramel apples,” Jennica Robinson, a member of Starbucks’ beverage development team, said in a statement. “It has a tart green apple favor balanced with a smooth, sweet caramel.”
All said, the drink finally adds a zombie to the chain’s monster mash of vampire- and Frankenstein-themed Halloween flavors over the years. It’s much cooler to think of it as a rabid undead unicorn, though.
