Starbucks has been blowing fans away for years during the fall months with the Pumpkin Spice Latte (TBH, we like the Pumpkin Cold Brew better 😉). But now, the coffee giant is here with a new Halloween-themed drink that makes the PSL look *meh* in comparison.

The new drink is called the Phantom Frappuccino, and it’s got a solid Halloween theme going on. The drink is totally black, with a little green “slime” woven throughout it. Unfortunately, there’s a trick to this treat—it’s only available in Europe. (😫!!!)

Now, the taste: Phantom Frappuccino has a seriously fruity vibe. It’s a blend of coconut milk, mango, and pineapple essence along with Starbucks crème Frappuccino syrup, with “lime slime” all around. It also has an optional dark coconut whipped cream made from coconut milk and black charcoal powder.

The lime slime may look scary, but it is actually made from spirulina extract, charcoal powder, and lime and lemon juices. Not, you know, actual slime. Phew!

There are already some pics and videos of the ghoulish Frappuccino making their way around Instagram, and it looks...intense:

On a cool note, the drink is entirely free of animal products, and it’s already getting props from vegans! Love that for Starbucks. But, bad news reminder: It’s only available in Europe...and for just five days, starting October 26. I know, time to start crying real tears if you live anywhere else.

But hey, if you’re already planning a trip abroad, you can add a stop-off at Starbucks to your itinerary. The drink is just £2.70 (or $3.50), so it won’t drain your travel budget!
