You can get a (possibly) poisoned Starbucks Frappuccino to honor Freddy Krueger

Chucky from the 1988 Freddy Krueger horror film “A Nightmare on Elm Street” is going to be the pop-culture hero at your own Halloween.

Starbucks will be selling Chucky-themed Frappuccinos for nine days during October — one for each of the beloved horror character’s killings in the film.

The “I’m Not a Killer” Frappuccino was inspired by the director’s version of the monster, releasing in 1988, and replaces a traditional whipped cream base with Frappuccino syrup, orange-and-black-colored sprinkles and a black edible meringue waffle cone.

But The Nightmare On Cloverfield Lane scares only one day a year, as the “Chucky Freakout” Frappuccino begins on Oct. 13. That drink features chocolate cake Frappuccino blended with espresso and topped with chopped chocolate cake chunks.

Fans of Freddy Krueger have set up a petition to block the Frappuccino with 20,000 signatures.

Starbucks still says that they’re not a “death” drinks for killers.

We don’t celebrate them around here: In 2013, the company won a lawsuit brought by a California man who sued for a Frappuccino death, claiming he was poisoned by the beverage at a Target. The court dismissed his claim based on Colorado law, which makes it difficult to sue for claims involving food.
