Raise the dead, or simply raise your spirits, with this season’s Starbucks “secret” Halloween menu item: the Franken Frappuccino. An alarming shade of spearmint green, the Franken Frappuccino is temporarily pushing out the pumpkin spice latte as the seasonal favorite. Just like the mythical monster himself, this Franken-treat is a mash-up of various Starbucks ingredients: ask for the Franken Frappuccino and you’ll get a green tea Frappuccino with peppermint syrup, white chocolate sauce, and java chips, topped with whipped cream and mocha drizzle.
Unlike many Starbucks secret menu items, this one probably won’t make your barista mad, because Starbucks is even promoting it (unlike the Berry Captain Crunch frappe that we know you’ve tried once or twice). You can get it from now until Halloween for just $3 for a Grande. And we can honestly only think of one other green treat we want even more than the Franken Frap, and unfortunately, Reptar bars are fictional.
