Starbucks new Witch’s Brew Frappuccino is wicked good

A pinch of toad’s breath. A dash of bat warts. A sprinkle of lizard scale.

Starbucks is stirring up a new Halloween concoction this year with #witchsbrewfrappuccino blended beverage. Participating #starbucks stores in the United States, Canada, Mexico and select markets in the Caribbean will offer the newest Halloween #frappuccino blended beverage starting today (Oct. 25) for a limited time while supplies last.

The charming concoction starts with a purple blend of “toad’s breath” and orange crème #frappuccino and a swirl of green “bat warts” (made with chia seeds). A topping of vanilla whipped cream and dusting of green “lizard scale” powder finishes the beverage.

“We wanted to create a flavor that you might enjoy at a Halloween party,” said Jennica Robinson from #starbucks beverage development team. “It gets a little bit of juicy-ness from the orange flavor.”

Chilling new #frappuccino beverages have become a fun Halloween tradition at #starbucks. The Franken Frappuccino® blended beverage first came to life in 2014, followed by the Frappula Frappuccino® blended beverage in 2015 and 2016 and Zombie Frappuccino blended beverage in 2017.

“Starbucks loves to celebrate Halloween, and each year our #frappuccino brings something different to the season,” said Robinson. “We started with Frappula, which was inspired by an old-school horror movie. #zombiefrappuccino was like the walking dead, a little ghastly. Witch’s Brew is very fun, vibrant, bubbly, the life of the party.”
