Starbucks Japan offers Red Night Masquerade frappuccino for Halloween

7 Comments

You can pretty much set your calendar to Starbucks Japan gearing up for each month with a new seasonal Frappuccino, with the recent run of "Peach on the Beach" and Golden Sweet Potato, and blooming sakura flavors giving each of Japan's distinct seasons a colorful beverage.

Halloween is no different, and as a sequel to last year's witch and princess Frappuccinos, this year Starbucks is aiming for perhaps a bloodier offering with the new mysterious "Halloween Red Night" Masquerade-themed Frappuccino.

The Halloween Red Night Frappuccino lives up to its name by combining a heavy serving of sweet and sour red berry sauce (a blend of raspberry, cranberry, and strawberry) along with a white chocolate brownie. That's then topped off with a dollop of whipped cream, dark cocoa powder, and an extra red berry sauce.

Those looking for a hot beverage at their Halloween masquerade party can turn to the Halloween Masquerade Raspberry Mocha, a fruity white mocha beverage that mixes sweet and sour mixed berries with a shot of espresso.

Both masquerade-themed berry beverages will go on sale at Starbucks stores throughout Japan from Oct 11-31.

Sugar, I’ll grant you, and the preservatives I’ve not researched so not sure. But color? The colors of berries, and perhaps tomatoes or beets? What is your objection to those?

Your high school chemistry classes dealt with the science of food coloring? And reached a different conclusion than the US EPA, the UK FSA and the EU FSA?
