I can say proudly that I’ve never murdered another person and fed on his or her blood, but thanks to the latest seasonal beverage at Starbucks I can come close with a caffeinated equivalent. It’s the Frappula Frappuccino, available at your nearest Starbucks until the day after the day after Halloween.
Named for the nom de bloodsucking of the immortal Vlad Tepes, Son of the Dragon, the Frappula Frappuccino blends white chocolate sauce, milk, ice, mocha sauce, and whipped cream, with the most crucial ingredient – bright red raspberry syrup – drizzled on top (if you prefer strawberry to raspberry, order the Vampire Frappuccino instead).
For more information on both the Vampire and Frappula Frappuccinos, like when/where it will be available and for how long, head over to the Starbucks Newsroom right here. And to sink your fangs into it for yourself, just enter your closest Starbucks (but only after being invited inside).
