While we were in Disney Springs celebrating the re-opening of the World of Disney store, and finding attraction spirit jerseys we stopped at Starbucks to try out their limited-time Witch’s Brew Crème Frappuccino.
Witch’s Brew is this Halloween’s specialty, limited-time/until supplies last, Frappuccino following in the footsteps of last year’s Zombie Frappuccino and other limited time Frapps like the Unicorn and Mermaid.
Starbucks describes this as a blend of Toad’s Breath (the purple), a swirl of Bat Warts (the chia seeds), and a dusting of lizard scale powder (the green sugar sprinkled on the whipped cream). Right off the bat (pun intended), our Brew was light on the “Lizard Scale” — can you see it in this picture? We promise it is there!
Now for the all-important taste — according to Starbucks it is supposed to taste like the Orange Crème Frappuccino. We were disappointed by this. It tasted like a watered down Orange Creamsicle from our childhood, but with a really gooey texture. The gooey texture came from the chia seeds, which didn’t add to the taste, but really subtracted from the experience for us.
This is great for a fun Halloween or Insta picture, but if you’re looking for something that is a better flavor experience we’d say pick a different Frapp off the menu. Plus, the $5.95 price tag for a grande size made us question the value of the entire experience — even if we got great pictures and enjoyed eating the whipped cream!
This Frapp is only around for a limited time, or until supplies last. Have you been spellbound by this Brew? Let us know in the comments!
