You’re invited to celebrate a seductive masquerade party in your mouth this Halloween. 

It’s that time of year again, when people start asking where the time went as the leaves begin to change colour and pumpkin flavours start appearing on supermarket shelves, beckoning the arrival of Halloween.

This year, Starbucks is celebrating the occasion with two new Japan-exclusive beverages designed to conjure up the feel of a Halloween Masquerade Party. Called the “Halloween Red Night Frappuccino” and “Halloween Masquerade Raspberry Mocha”, these new drinks come with splashes of ghoulish red and, for a limited time, they come with a special online treat too, as part of a fun Twitter campaign.

The Halloween Red Night Frappuccino is the most eye-catching of the two new offerings, with its bright red appearance designed to conjure up all the mystery of a masquerade party world. It comes filled with a sweet and tart red berry sauce made from raspberries, cranberries and strawberries, but beneath its scarlet-coloured mask hides a Frappuccino blended with white chocolate brownies. The drink is finished off with a topping of whipped cream, black cocoa powder and red red berry sauce, to create a very luxurious dessert drink.

The Halloween Masquerade Raspberry Mocha will wake you up with its espresso shot, and is especially recommended for Starbucks White Mocha fans. This is said to be a fascinating beverage, where sweet and sour mixed berries and espresso gently melt together, and each serving comes with roughly 5 percent raspberry juice.

For a limited time, Starbucks Japan will be giving customers a Halloween treat by sending back an online mask to those who retweet their Halloween Masquerade Party drinks announcement tweet.

The Frappuccino will be available in a tall size only, for 590 yen (US$5.52) plus tax, while the Mocha will be available in Short through to Venti sizes, starting at 450 yen plus tax. As with all good things, these new beverages will only be available for a limited time, landing in Starbucks outlets around the country on 11 October and disappearing from menus on 31 October.
