Over a summer, a Unicorn Frappuccino took a Instagram set by storm, putting what we suspicion was a spike in a coffin of unicorn dishes forever, yet no (nayyyyy, if it behooves you). For many like a Night King resurrects a slain dragon into a blue fire-spewing undead beast, so hath Starbucks summoned a passed to arise again.
Yes, a Zombie Frap is a bit like a Unicorn Frap, colorful and Laffy Taffy-ish, solely that it’s usually a meagre 290 calories per unchanging sequence — that’s grande for a rewards label holders — as against to a unicorn’s 410 calories. The frap is sprinkled with a Green Tart Caramel Apple Powder and a puzzling plant-derived Pink Powder and is laced with tentacles of thick Zombie Mocha Drizzle. The splash is not unequivocally stoical of “food” so many as a chemicals indispensable to safety your physique from a inside out, self-mummification being one of a many underrated Starbucks Rewards (terms and conditions apply). Atop sits a brain-like mass of pinkish churned cream.
The initial sip sends we behind to center propagandize when those sinful caramel apple lollipops initial seemed out of a cloying sky with their guarantee of tooth spoil and what seemed to be candied hot dog barf on a stick.
“It looks like you’re celebration guts,” a colleague pronounced of a Zombie Frap once we was behind during a office. Drinking being a relations term, since nobody over 12 will endure even a venti portion of this revolting mess. we was left crankier than usual, hunched over my desk, a Wilford Brimley in need of oatmeal and some diabetes brochures.

More like a fecundated pond, a form that always has some arrange of 90-foot engulf quadruped watchful during a bottom to drag we underneath when you’re only perplexing to tan by a fecundated pool on your summer break. Get away, it seemed to warn.
I tossed it out and am sincerely certain it ate by a rubbish can in a Houston Press’s kitchen, uncertain as we was if we could indeed rinse it down a drain.

With all that in mind, it’s still going to be formidable to find a zombie frap in Houston for Halloween. When we called a Starbucks on Louisiana in Midtown to see if they’re also carrying it, a barista told me they were out. “We do have a Frappula, though.”
“It’s a white chocolate mocha frappuccino with strawberry puree on top.”
Sounds like a bloody disaster that we shall leave be.
