Duo of decadent drinks come with a limited-time Twitter offer and matching Halloween doughnuts.

It hasn’t even been a fortnight since we were sitting at Starbucks licking our lips after tasting their brand new pumpkin Frappuccino. But things move fast in the world of seasonal beverages in Japan, so it’s time to get ready for another new release this month, and now there are two limited-edition Frappucino beverages coming our way.

▼ Say hello to the Halloween Witch and the Halloween Princess.

These mouthwatering photos, released just yesterday, show us everything we need to know about the new seasonal beverages. Both contain the delicious flavour of apple, but the big question is: Are you a witch or a princess? Let’s take a look at the different apple combinations to find out.

First up is the decadently dark witch version, which contains a vivid red apple compote on the bottom layer, followed by a middle layer made from a whole caramel-flavoured cookie, blended into the drink to create a “dark apple” dessert sensation when combined with the compote. The drink is finished off with a chocolate sauce dripping around the inside of the cup and on the whipped cream topping, to make all your witchy Halloween fantasies come true.

On the other side of the naughty/nice scale is the Halloween Princess Frappuccino, which blends the apple compote into the drink with white mocha sauce and whipped cream, to create a sweet and milky apple flavour. A sprinkling of tiny sugar pearls in pink and blue complete the princess mood while evoking the image of a glamorous ball gown.

Complementing the new Halloween drink duo are a couple of matching doughnuts (price TBA). The witch variety contains a bright red apple compote filling, with chocolate icing and crunchy dark cocoa pieces, while the princess variety contains a melt-in-the-mouth smooth pink icing, topped off with a splash of edible silver glitter and sugar pearls for a bittersweet apple experience.

If you’re having trouble deciding whether to go witch or princess this Halloween, Starbucks is ready to help you out with a special Twitter campaign. Simply retweet the tweet below and the company will send you a message to let you know whether you’re a witch or a princess!


The Halloween Witch and Halloween Princess Frappuccino will be available in a tall size only for 590 yen (US$5.26) at Starbucks outlets around the country from 18-31 October.
