Starbucks Frappuccino creation for Halloween 2015, the Frappula, is anything but blah, blah, blah, blah. It definitely is interesting looking with the raspberry syrup mimicking blood. And it’s even cooler watching the blood trickle down the sides of the cup, slowly infusing with the white chocolate Frappuccino mix.
The base of the drink is pumps of mocha sauce which when mixed, pretty much destroys the visual appeal of the Frappula. But you kinda want that mocha and raspberry combination in this drink, meaning you gotta mix the drink for the best flavor. You can’t just suck up the mocha sauce because that’s just too overpowering. The white chocolate Frappuccino is creme based, so there’s no caffeine. Mixed together, the flavors blend nicely, and the Frappula is not too sweet either. I was expecting uber sweet, but I’ve had sweeter drinks from Starbucks before. Don’t be fooled, this drink is loaded with fat but is a fun changeup for the rest of October.
The Vampire Frappuccino looks interesting as well but oddly is available only in Europe and Latin America.
Here are more pictures of the Frappula as the different layers are gradually mixed together.
