We’re Obsessed with the New Halloween Frappuccinos from Starbucks

Still wondering what this year's Halloween Frappuccino will be? The answer might be across the Pacific.

Since 2014, Starbucks has been celebrating Halloween with spine-chilling Frappuccino flavors. (You might remember the Franken Frappuccino and the Frappula Frappuccino.) Last year, after weeks of persistent rumors, the coffee chain rolled out a horrifying Zombie Frappuccino. Remember all the suspense leading up to that big reveal?

The Zombie Frappuccino was a ghastly green beverage made with Frappuccino Crème and infused with flavors of tart apple and caramel, topped with pink whipped cream “brains.” But Starbucks has kept spookily silent about 2018’s limited-edition Halloween Frappuccinos.

Here’s what’s maddening: Japan and Korea already have Halloween Frappuccinos!

Last week, Starbucks Japan unveiled a pair of limited-edition Halloween Frappuccinos, which will, no doubt, duel for the souls of their customers:

  • Halloween Witch: blends a Frappuccino base with a bright red apple compote and a caramel-flavored cookie, topped with whipped cream, and dripped spookily with thick gooey dark chocolate sauce
  • Halloween Princess: blends a Frappuccino base with the apple compote, white mocha sauce and whipped cream, but finished off with a sprinkling of tiny sugar pearls in pink and blue

The Halloween Princess looks like a glamorous ball gown, while the Halloween Witch is downright frightful! Ever wonder what’s in a Frappuccino?

The drinks in Korea = monstrously good

Starbucks Korea also introduced two limited-edition Halloween drinks, which remind us of a Halloween party or a monster mash:

  • Vampire Frappuccino: a sweet strawberry Frappuccino with ice and milk, dripping with a ghoulish strawberry sauce and topped with whipped cream and chocolate bats
  • Monster Cappuccino: a cold brew cappuccino with cold foam etched with a scary skeleton face with chocolate sauce (Here’s what you should know about Starbucks cold brew.)

It’s hard to say what Halloween drink will appear at Starbucks in the United States. Last year’s Zombie Frap was only available October 26-31, so the coffee chain is running out of time. It’s freaking us out!

Next up: We cracked the Starbucks fall secret menu. Here’s how to order each drink.
