Starbucks's Nightmare Before Christmas Sally Frappuccino Is Here to Haunt Your Taste Buds

Do you feel it in your bones and hear it in the way the wind knocks insistently at your window? Halloween is near, and I plan to celebrate the haunting occasion with this Nightmare Before Christmas Sally Frappuccino off of Starbucks's secret menu. Sweet and beautiful in an odd sort of way, the Halloween-themed drink is essentially a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino mixed with matcha powder. But the caramel drizzle, whipped cream, and freeze-dried strawberries on top add several layers and dimensions to the drink that make it feel patched together just like Sally herself.

Plus, you can add a spoonful of strawberry purée on top to create an oozing effect that makes this treat truly creepy. Find out how to order the Sally-inspired drink or make it for yourself at home here.
