Good thing Dracula survives on blood and not frappuccinos, because Dracula would end up doing unspeakable things for his next fix while living in a cardboard coffin in a dark Transylvania alley.
Still, Starbucks is using Dracula as the inspiration for their Halloween frappuccino dubbed “Frappula”.
Frappula Frappuccino blended beverage is made with white chocolate sauce, milk and ice blended together then layered between mocha sauce and a dollop of whipped cream. A drizzle of raspberry syrup oozes from the rim, which is finished with whipped cream on top.
The drink will be available in U.S. stores from October 28-31.

In an effort to be funny, and possibly push the placebo effect to its limits, Firebox released this line of cynical tea bags which carry titles like “Live Forever”, “Get Along With Your Co-Workers”, and “Instant Really Good Karma”. Unfortunately, every selection also carries the “results may vary” infomercial kiss of death, which basically means “this sh*t doesn’t do what we say it will”.
What you can expect are a variety of flavors, including Chamomile with Citrus & Mint, Rooibos Coconut, and Oolong with Orange.

If you have a badass pirate impression that’s in need of some appreciation, then haul your ass to one of these participating Krispy Kreme locations on Wednesday. In honor of International Talk Like A Pirate Day, the chain will be offering one free original glazed donut to those who can display proper pirate lingo. But wait! If you go a step further and dress the part, you’ll get a dozen, absolutely FREE!
As for the fine print: there’s no purchase necessary, no coupon required, and a limit of one offer per guest per visit. Finally, there’s no weapons allowed.
