Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes are in full swing, as usual during this time of year, but a new seasonal offering may be wobbling along the coffee chain's horizon -- and whatever it is, it looks like it's oozing something green and pink.
According to Day of the Human, the new beverage is a Zombie Frappuccino. Starbucks has not confirmed the new Halloween-themed Frappuccino, but Day of the Human claims to have received leaked photos (pictured below) from an unknown Starbucks employee.
The source claims the Starbucks Zombie Frappuccino will be a creme Frappuccino made to taste like a green caramel apple, blended with green and pink powder, "pink brains" whipped cream and drizzled with pink mocha. A Starbucks representative told Cosmopolitan: "Our Halloween plans are still under [mummy] wraps" and Twitter users suggest something wicked this way comes.
A Twitter user tweeted: "Omd @ZombieSquadHQ Mommy's work is going to be selling a ZOMBIE FRAPPUCCINO!" and another user tweeted similarly, "We are getting a new Halloween frappuccino at work #zombiefrappuccino and I'm scared because it's colorful like the #unicornfrappuccino."
One Instagram user posted what may or may not be the real deal with whipped cream brains to boot (pictured below). She commented on the photo saying it tastes like matcha, mocha and raspberry -- so the jury is still out on this one, but it looks true to form.
If rumors are true, Starbucks Zombie Frappuccino will be running from Oct. 26 through Oct. 31 (Halloween), while supplies last. Given that the undead Frappuccinos are as popular as Unicorn Frappuccinos, which didn't last a full day at some locations, it would be wise to rise early morning -- half-awake, "half-dead" -- and grab a zombie fix before they're gone!
"Zombie Frappuccinos" bear a similar resemblance to the unofficial fan-based beverages "The Wired Zombie" or "The Franken Frappuccino," both available under Starbucks' coveted Secret Menu and made to look like an oozing brain -- delicious!
So the countdown begins with Starbucks Zombie Frappuccino outbreak, so don't miss your chance to order a venti-sized brain freeze!
