A Zombie Frappuccino sounds like the kind of pick-me-up I need most mornings in the Starbucks drive-through. I sit in my car in my freshly-pressed work clothes, still groaning that the alarm just had to go off this morning. I groan something not quite legible through the drive-through speaker. The barista responds, “Oh, I see, you must need the Zombie Frappuccino, right? I’ll give you the total at the next window.”
I take a drink from this concoction and –bam– I’m back to being a functional adult; awake and everything.
Okay, maybe I’m a little off by how the Zombie Frappuccino works. Also, Starbucks has not yet officially confirmed it as a thing yet, but a few baristas have taken to social media to talk about it. So, just in time for Halloween, we are here to give you the scoop!
The drink may not bring you out of a restless slumber, but it is certainly an exciting (and fairly sugary) drink from the sound of it. Day Of The Human, a blog based on eating, entertainment, and everyday tasks, says that the drink is “…blended with a special new ‘Green Caramel Apple Powder and Pink Powder’ (of undisclosed flavor) for another splash of color. This creates a drink with colors evocative of a classic cartoon zombie.” On top of that, the drink will also have pink whipped cream to represent brains, as well as a pink mocha drizzle on top.

Day Of The Human also claim that the Frappuccino will have a “very limited” release starting October 26, 2017, and will go through October 31st. However, if it’s anything like the Unicorn Frappuccino, it would not be a good idea to wait until Halloween to try this drink. Once it’s gone, it’s gone!
Again, Starbucks has yet to confirm if any of this is true, but the internet is abuzz so, just like in a zombie apocalypse, it’s always best to be prepared!
What do you guys think? Do you think this drink would beat out the Unicorn Frappuccino? Are you excited to try it? Let us know in the comments section below!
