Add this to the list of wild drinks you must try this fall. It: Chapter Two recently hit theaters, and Starbucks has decided to offer a drink inspired by Pennywise, the murderous, terrifying clown from the film.
The frappuccino drink features a “strawberry blood” puree. I know I’m in!
The drink is a limited-edition item, and also it isn’t technically on the Starbucks menu, but if you ask your local barista for the Pennywise frappuccino, they’ll most likely know what you’re talking about. The drink has a vanilla bean frappuccino base with the strawberry puree (aka “blood”) mixed in. You can also add a vanilla bean scone if you want to get crazy.
A lot of Starbucks locations are not advertising the spooky concoction, but some places are letting the world know that they’re offering the drink.
The drink seems to be a big hit because photos of it are all over social media.
One barista even got really creative with the cup and decided to draw Pennywise over the Starbucks logo.
The Pennywise frappuccino has actually been around since 2017 when the first It film hit the big screens, but a lot of folks still don’t know it exists.
“Andy and I have discussed ideas for what a third movie would look like. I don’t think it’s quite what people expect. It’s something different. The first two stories are the book, and the second film is the end of that story. So we would do something quite literally off book. There are a few ideas floating around. I feel like I’ve done what I can with the incarnation of Pennywise as we know of him, so I think it would be a cool idea to change up a few things. So, without going into too much detail, there is a story that we’re kind of excited about, but it’s way too early to say. But we’ll see, we’ll see.”
I can’t wait to try this bloody—I mean strawberry-flavored drink and see a third installment of the series!
