Move over, Pumpkin Spice Latte. Starbucks may be introducing a new signature drink this fall.

According to rumors on social media, the Zombie Frappuccino may be launching on Oct. 26 at Starbucks locations nationwide.

A tweet showing a photo of a paper that reads "Barista Need-To-Know" shows a drink called the "Zombie Frappuccino" and says the drink will be featured on Starbucks daily offering boards from Oct. 26 to Oct. 31 or "while supplies last."

According to Fox News, a former Starbucks barista who blogs about the company said the drink will be made to resemble brains, being colored by "green caramel apple powder" and "pink powder."

Will the Zombie Frappuccinno be the next secret menu obsession at Starbucks, following the success of the Mermaid Frappuccinno, Dragon Frappuccino and Unicorn Frappuccino?
