What's this? What's this?: Jack Skellington Frappuccino

There’s no movie that does a better job of encompassing all of the holiday feelings from October through December better than The Nightmare Before Christmas, a movie that seamlessly drifts between the twisted, dark world of Jack Skellington and his spooky friends, and the magic of Christmas.

Starbucks lovers have created their share of secret menu items over the years. Whether it's the Cinderella latte or the "It" frappuccino, there are seemingly endless options out there for the creatively caffeinated. The latest to join the fray is the so-called "Jack Skellington Frappuccino" and it might just be the perfect mix of Christmas and Halloween drinks.

The season for all things spooky is nigh! And what better way to celebrate its arrival than with Starbucks’ secret menu Jack Skellington Frappuccino? I mean, October literally has a holiday with the word “treat” in its name. Thus, it is only right to ring in the spooks with something sweet.

Even though this isn't an official Disney drink and Starbucks doesn't have an official secret menu, you can get still get what fans have dubbed the Jack Skellington Frappuccino by giving your barista a specific order using items available on the traditional menu. You'll want to first ask for a Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino with a mocha drizzle, which will be the rich base of your Jack Skellington drink. Then, add in a shot of chai syrup to give the drink an extra oomph of sugar and spice, add a shot of espresso for a caffeinated kick. Top the drink off with whipped cream and java chips to create the snow-covered peaks of Christmas Town (because they just make everything taste better)

Once you get that all out, the result is a chocolatey twist on a typical fall drink. Plus, it gives the black and white effect that screams Jack Skellington. People who have ordered it say that it’s a sweet drink, so brace yourself but it’s still good. Cheers to spooky season!
