Starbucks Just Released a Limited-Edition Halloween Frappuccino: The Frappula

10/26/2015 at 10:49 AM ET


This is what we call a Halloween miracle.

On Monday morning, Starbucks announced their spooky new limited-edition Frappuccino — the Frappula — which will be available in stores from October 28th to the end of the day on October 31st. (Canadians are luckier; they’ll have until November 1st.)

The “vampire-inspired,” “fangtastic” frozen beverage is made with a blend of white chocolate sauce, milk and ice, which is then layered between mocha sauce and a generous dollop of whipped cream. A drizzle of raspberry syrup oozes from the rim, and the whole thing is finished with even more whipped cream.

This new Frapp sounds even better than the Franken Frappuccino, Starbucks’ Halloween beverage in 2014: a green-tea base with peppermint syrup, white chocolate sauce and java chips, then topped with whipped cream and mocha drizzle.

With Starbucks’ Toasted Graham Latte, iconic Pumpkin Spice Latte and this spooky special, it looks like we’re going to be extra caffeinated this Halloween.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

Dracula is not Frappula 🙂 All Romanians can tell you what Frappula is a very bad choice of letters; the final four letters are actually a very popular Romanian curse. This makes everyone that speaks the language giggle. Or, as someone said… the drink is a mouthfull hahahaha :))
