The Phantom Frappuccino is the Starbucks Halloween special for 2019, and it’s pretty strange

Phantom Frappuccino

Gross or gorge? We can’t decide.

Things are certainly starting to get spooky, as Halloween creeps around the corner.

We’re well into October at this stage, so the count down to All Hallows Eve has begun.

And we’re excited.

It seems as though the gorgeous folks at Starbucks are also excited – and they know how to show it.

The iconic coffee shop has created a special Halloween drink, that looks pretty terrifying.

Introducing: The Phantom Frappuccino.

The icy beverage is black, and seems to be decorated with green slime.

The drink is made with coconut milk, mango essence and lime slime, which doesn’t sound half bad.

Really, it’s the colour that has us confused.

According to the company, the Phantom Frappuccino is “dark on the outside and tastes like a light and fruity extravaganza on the inside”.

Plus, it’s vegan-friendly.

It will be available from the 26th of October to the 31st of October.

This isn’t the only seasonal news for Starbucks of course, with the comeback of the Pumpkin Spice Latte.

The famous PSL returned last month for a limited time, helping us all fulfil our autumnal dreams.

The folks at Starbucks are now also selling a PSL iced Frappuccino and an iced cold foam macchiato for the first time ever.

So many autumnal beverages to choose from.
