— Well This Is New (@All_Things_New_) October 16, 2017
Starbucks is always down to play ball when it comes to catering to our thematic holiday drink needs. Before the first leaf falls, we’ve got the Pumpkin Spice Latté, so it’s no surprise that now, inching towards the end of October, that people are wondering whether or not a Halloween-themed drink is on its way. The holiday is just around the corner! Well, friends, it looks like we may finally be closer to getting an answer: News that something called a “Vampire Frappuccino” has been released in the U.K. broke on Oct. 17, leading many (including myself) to wonder: Where can you get Starbucks’ Vampire Frappuccino in the U.S.? I mean, it seems like it’s basically the cousin of the wildly popular and even more wildly delicious Frappula Frappuccino (which was available in the U.S. around Halloween 2016 and featured essentially the same ingredients), so one has to wonder whether it means the U.S. will get a similarly fangtastic Halloween frappuccino. I mean, would Starbucks really only limit their Halloween spirit-infused drink menu to the other side of the pond? Me thinks not.
Well, good news and bad news. Bad news first, so we can just get it out of the way: For now, the Vampire Frappuccino is only available in the U.K., so U.S. customers can’t order it in any store unless they happen to be at a Starbucks in London (there’s a good one in Shoreditch off Old St., if you happen to be in the area!) or something. So yeah, womp, womp, womp. Don’t get too disappointed, though — there is some potential good news here, if you think about it. Just because the Vampire Frappuccino isn’t in the U.S. doesn’t mean we’re 100 percent not getting a Halloween drink. I really doubt Starbucks would only give the U.K. something special for the holiday and leave the U.S. behind. And, according to Day of the Human, a lifestyle blog that reports on Starbucks rumors (both of the site’s co-creators are former baristas), there are rumors that Starbucks could be pushing out something called a “Zombie Frappuccino” for Halloween. So, if those rumors are true, maybe there’s a freaky Halloween drink to look forward to after all.
Don’t be down, Turn that Frown Upside Down
Hopefully, Starbucks will get the hint, that we want a “Zombie Frappucino” and we want it now. But until they do, enjoy one of our finely scented handmade soy candles instead.
