Starbucks Japan's New Purple Sweet Potato Frappuccino Is Just In Time For Halloween
To celebrate Halloween of 2022, Starbucks Japan is using purple sweet potatoes as the main ingredient in a drink with a dark purple color that is perfect for the spooky season. Purple sweet potatoes are known for their unique appearance and health benefits, making this new drink not only pretty, but potentially good for you.
The Purple Halloween Frappuccino consists of purple sweet potato powder blended with milk, then topped with a vanilla sauce that is also made with purple sweet potatoes, for a lightly sweet and autumnal drink. The drink is topped off with whipped cream, and Starbucks Japan suggests adding chocolate sauce for a twist.
Unfortunately for international customers, this Frappuccino is only available at Japanese Starbucks locations. For those lucky Starbucks lovers in Japan, a tall size of this Frap retails for ¥690, but you have to be quick if you want to try this treat, since it will be available through October 31 while supplies last.
