Starbucks Zombie Frappuccino Review
Y’all loved my review of the Starbucks Unicorn Frap, see here for that post, and so on the first day of the Starbucks Zombie Frap release, I wanted to do it again!
This little Zombie guy definitely lives up to his name! One tall Zombie ordered and the barista hands me a sickly green creme like drink, with purple whipped cream and some dark, blood like syrup drizzling down the sides.
Kind of terrifying, but also really cool looking. While the unicorn Frap was sparkly and magical looking, this one is definitely very edgy and mysterious. I snapped a pic in the parking lot to see exactly what it looks like when made. And then I rushed home to snap a couple more angles and try it out.
Honestly I hadn’t read the description, I didn’t know what it was supposed to taste like at all, I just dove in. Almost immediately after tasting it you know it’s a sour green apple, and then what seemed like a strange sweet flavor afterwards. I was able to guess right that it was caramel, which actually made a lot of sense, caramel apple. The dark red drizzle is actually a mocha sauce, but the color is so good and looks a bit gory dripping down from the top like blood.
While it’s definitely not low calorie, I was surprised that the tall size was under 200 calories so I didn’t have to feel too bad about drinking it. (Who am I kidding, I did not drink it all!) The sugar on the other hand is 34 grams for the tall and 54 grams of sugar for the grande.
Overall it’s definitely a sweet sweet drink. It’s a lot like liquid candy. The taste itself isn’t awful, but caramel apple is not my fave. You could maybe get half of a tall one of these down before feeling sick to your stomach, but for just a one time purchase it is fun to look at!
FINAL THOUGHTS: Again, it’s slightly sour tasting, ultra sweet, and very sugary almost like you’re drinking candy. For looks I would rate a 9, definitely looks Zombie like. But for tastes, maybe a 4… but only if you like candy!
Did you get the zombie frappuccino? Are you planning to? Let me know and I’d love to hear your thoughts on it!
