With the exception of my love for all things Starbucks(TM) and anything Pumpkin Spice I try to distant myself from anything that could group me into being basic. If you aren’t sure what basic is, catch this Glamour article to catch up! After reading that article, I want to add Ryan Gosling to my basic resume…because…hot.
So anyways…back to my one or two slight basic bitch tendencies. Starbucks. Yes. Pumpkin Spice Latte. Yes. Peppermint Mocha. Yes. In the off seasons too? Yes.
But when I heard that my beloved coffee chain had created a ZOMBIE FREAKING FRAPPUCCINO just for me, I heard Zombies moaning, No, no singing angels here…we’re in Halloween season suckas!
I seldom leave my house these days but it became my mission to acquire one said ZOMBIE FREAKING FRAPPUCCINO!
I, quite literally, waited in the drive-thru line for about 35 minutes. I wasn’t even annoyed. I was still estatic because, well, you know…a ZOMBIE FREAKING FRAPPUCCINO!
Okay, sorry. You’re tired of that, aren’t you?
Well, here then…look at it! Just LOOK at it!
There….did you LOOK at it? My ZOMBIE FREAKING FRAPPUCCINO? Pretty huh?
Starbucks(TM) describes it as a chilling concoction of green caramel apple, a drizzle of dark mocha, and pinkish whip.
The photo of course shows the perfect brain topping of the “pinkish” whipped cream. Mine wasn’t as picturesque of course but I could see the effort. In the defense of my beloved baristas though….there was a line (35 minutes in the drive through if you recall) as well as a line inside. I don’t think everyone was getting a Zombie Frappuccino. Some people just had normal coffee cups. Weirdos.
The flavors are perfect. Every single sip was a delightful blend of the caramel apple and a smidge of chocolate from the dark mocha drizzle.
Like the Unicorn Frappuccino of past days, this too must fade back into the books of Urban Legend. If supplies last long enough, this ZOMBIE FREAKING FRAPPUCCINO will disappear on All Hallows Eve.
