Double, double, toil and trouble. The Halloween edition Frappucino is at Starbucks, and it’s sure to make your cauldron boil.
The drink, known as Witches Brew, sounds pretty spooky. According to its’ description on the website, it has toad’s breath, swamp fog and goblin regret. Add in a topping of lizard scales, and you’re good to go.
The drink is also the perfect colors for Halloween — a deep purple, and green. And, tt’s definitely an Instagrammable drink. However, while it’s a pretty drink to look at, here’s the real question: what does it taste like?
According to an article on US Weekly entitled Starbucks’ Witch’s Brew Frappuccino Is ‘Toad-Breath Flavored,’ Has ‘Bat Warts,’ the drink is actually orange flavored. And, as for the bat warts? Well, those are actually chia seeds. Furthermore, the article says that the drink is complete with green powder, which is actually green sprinkles.
Now, this isn’t the first time that Starbucks has released spooky drinks. The article says that this is the fourth year doing so. Last year, we had the Zombie Frappucino. And, in 2015 and 2016, we had the Frappula. In 2014, they had the Franken Frappucino.
However, if you’re hesitant to try this due to trauma from the Unicorn Frappucino, this drink actually sounds like it’s pretty good. After all, if we are judging by description alone, it sounds like an orange Cremiscle.
A drink that is both pretty to look at, and is delicious? Talk about a millennial’s dream come true!
With that being said, their spooky menu doesn’t stop just there. Starbucks will also be offering a raccoon sugar cookie, and a mummy cake pop for Halloween. Perfect combo with your Witches Brew.
But, don’t hesitate to get your hands on this drink. It’s only going to be available for a limited time.
