Maddie Tries the New Zombie Frappucino
I tried the new Zombie Frappuccino at Starbucks!
For a limited time only - October 26th through the 31st - Starbucks is featuring a new zombie frappuccino on their menu. Although it appears slightly similar, this is not to be confused with the unicorn frappuccino released earlier this year.
While I skipped out on the unicorn frap because it's not really my style, I knew I had to get my hands on the zombie one. I decided to put an extra spin on things and surprise my baby sister at work with one. She was stuck inside on a beautiful day and some sister instinct in me told me she'd be happy if I showed up with a frozen treat. Who wouldn't?
She actually said she, quote, "looked like death" in that picture and would prefer I didn't post it. But since it is a ZOMBIE frappuccino, I found it fitting.
Now, for my review:
I liked it! It was a combo of green apple and chocolate flavor. The apple was a bit tart but the chocolate syrup was a nice balance. Holy sugar! It was sweet...but also tart...ya feel? There was a hint of a caramel flavor, but the apple really overpowered the entire thing. If you're into green apple, then I'd suggest this 100%. I enjoyed it and drank the entire thing.
However, my sister said it was a little too tart for her liking. She also tried the unicorn frap and said the same thing about that one. Basically, there is no pleasing her. Next time I'll bring chicken nuggets...I know she'll be satisfied with that for sure.
Anyway, I'd give it a shot. I'm sure the baristas are already sick and tired of making it...but luckily (for them) they're only around until Halloween. So go grab one before it's too late!
