Frappula 2016 Is Confused
Starbucks has brought back its Halloween-themed Frappula for 2016, but this year’s version is confused. The 2015 version featured a mocha base, various layers, and a “bloody” raspberry syrup. On first glance, the 2016 version has the same recipe according to the official Starbucks app. But in-store, the Frappula has strawberry instead of raspberry. While it works, […]
The Best Halloween “Costume”
While it’s not yet October 31, 2016, I’m calling this the best “costume” of this Halloween season. Yup, that’s a humongous roach on the side of the house. But, no worry! There’s a big can of Raid waiting…
The Frappula Is NOT Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah
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.

Go find the Frappula starting on Wednesday, October 28, […]

This Hawaii News Now meteorologist gained some recent social media attention with the #liehagi meme poking fun at the inaccuracies of weather forecasting. But Guy took this ribbing in stride and owned #liehagi as this […]
Franken Frappuccino. I Had To.
I just had to do it. Pulpconnection readers know I’m not a fan of the Frappuccino. A non-coffee-based Frappuccino is downright egregious, but with Starbucks offering the Franken Frappuccino, I had to get this monstrosity. Based off a green tea Frappuccino, the Franken also has white mocha, java chips, mocha drizzle, whipped cream, and either […]
Or exploding pumpkin or pumpkin time bomb. Call it what you want, but it is something to watch. Who even thought of putting rubber bands around a pumpkin to begin with? Then watching the results is even more fascinating. If you want to see what happens, let Jimmy Fallon demonstrate. And yes, protective gear is […]

Is That a Red Cookie Monster?
Sadly, kids nowadays don’t recognize the costume on the right. No, it’s not Elmo or a red Cookie Monster. Do you remember this Sesame Street character?
