Starbucks Gets Into The Halloween Spirit With Witch’s Brew Frappuccino
Starbucks is stirring up a new Halloween concoction this year with their spooktacular Witch’s Brew Frappuccino, a mystical purple brew that’s coming soon to an Instagram feed near you, because you know every basic girl will be posting photos of this for all to see.
The charming concoction starts off with orange crème Frappuccino, a purple blend of “toad’s breath” and a swirl of green “bat warts” (made with chia seeds). A topping of vanilla whipped cream and dusting of green “lizard scale” powder finishes the beverage. Strangely enough, the Witch’s Brew Frappuccino doesn’t have any coffee or espresso in it.
“Starbucks loves to celebrate Halloween, and our Frappuccino brings something different to the season each year,” said Jennica Robinson of the Starbucks beverage development team. “We started with Frappula, which was inspired by an old-school horror movie. Last year’s Zombie Frappuccino was like The Walking Dead, a little ghastly. Witch’s Brew is very fun, vibrant, bubbly, the life of the party.”
Participating Starbucks stores in the United States, Canada, and Mexico will offer the Witch’s Brew Frappuccino for a limited time while supplies last.
So what do you say, are you going to try the Witch’s Brew for yourself? If so, don’t wait too long, because they’ll be gone before you know it!
Get Excited, Because McDonald’s Has Brought Back The McRib!
McDonald’s just announced that they’ve brought back the tasty fan favorite McRib sandwich for a limited time, and I couldn’t be more excited for this.
My love affair with the McRib started more than 35 years ago when I first bit into this delicious sandwich, a seasoned boneless pork slathered in tangy, delicious barbecue sauce, topped with slivered onions and tart pickles on a hoagie-style bun. It was love at first bite.
Sadly, the McRib disappeared from McDonald’s menu not long thereafter, briefly returning for limited engagements throughout the years, with fans clamoring to get their hands on one of these BBQ sauce-oozing sandwiches while they still could.
Now, nearly a year since it was last offered, the McRib is back for a limited time, available in more than 9,000 U.S. restaurants nationwide, both in stores and through through McDelivery on Uber Eats, so you don’t even need to leave the house to get one.
“While McDonald’s has ushered in many new items this year, such as fresh beef in our quarter-pound burgers, we know our fans love this limited time classic,” said McDonald’s Chef Mike Haracz. “That’s why we wanted to bring the McRib to as many fans as possible this year. With the McRib also now available via McDelivery on Uber Eats, we’re excited to make it more accessible to customers with the speed and convenience they expect from McDonald’s.”
Now if history is any indication, not all McDonald’s will have the McRib, so make sure you call ahead (or use the McDonald’s Finder app) to make sure your local store has the McRib before making a special trip, only to have your hopes and dreams crushed.
All this talk about the McRib has got me really hungry. So it’s off to McDonald’s I go! 😋
