Does the Starbucks Zombie Frappuccino Taste as Good as It Looks? An Investigation

The Zombie Frappuccino is officially taking over Starbucks and, yes, taking over social media feeds everywhere. While the pictures are bright and bursting with colorful brains, the reviews about the caffeine-free drink are, well, very mixed.

With reviews ranging from "it's a total win" to "I'm really disappointed," we've gathered them all so you can try the drink at your own risk, including some pro tips about modifications to enhance your order. Read on to see some of the polarized reactions of the Zombie Frappuccino, and get ready to see this bad boy take over social media until its final burial on Oct. 31.
