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.

A non-coffee-based Frappuccino is downright egregious, but with Starbucks offering the Franken Frappuccino, I had to get this monstrosity.

Smashing Pumpkins

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 […]
