We’re still a few days out from Halloween, but Starbucks is already getting in the spirit of the holiday.
Yesterday the coffee house giant introduced the world to its vampire-inspired “Frappula Frappuccino.” The “fang-tastic” new Frapp goes on sale tomorrow, October 28, and will remain on the menu through the 31st. The bulk of the drink is a blend of white chocolate sauce, whole milk and ice. Then, the spooky-sweet liquid is garnished with mocha sauce and whipped cream and a drizzle of raspberry syrup. Think of it as a drinkable white chocolate raspberry truffle.
Though Starbucks isn’t providing nutrition information for the beverage, it’s safe to assume that the Frappula’s stats are enough to give any health-conscious dieter a scare. Most 16-ounce grande blended beverages from the chain are well over 400 calories and carry more sugar than 10 Chocolate Crème Oreos—yikes! If you want to sink your fangs into a cup, order a tall, ask for skim milk and lose the whipped cream. We estimate that this custom order will save you well over 200 calories and 20 grams of the sweet stuff. Or better yet, stick with one of these 12 Diet Expert-Approved Starbucks Orders.
