Now that IT: Chapter 2 is in theaters, the cosmic killer clown Pennywise is on everyone’s mind. It turns out that the clown is so popular, you can even get an IT-themed Pennywise frappuccino at Starbucks. The drink comes off their “secret menu” and has been available since 2017, but given the hype of the new film – some fans are just now discovering the beverage for the first time.
In fact, some locations are proudly advertising the IT-themed frappuccino, so definitely check it out – they’re available in every location!
One Starbucks barista with the Instagram handle @Tinker_Hell revealed the secret to obtaining one of these drinks.
“*PLEASE DO NOT ORDER THIS AS THE IT FRAPPUCCINO, your barista will likely NOT know what that is. Order a Vanilla bean frappuccino with strawberry purée on top!”
Because of the way this drink is made, the strawberry drizzle will look like blood seeping through the beverage. And the strawberries on top will resemble Pennywise’s trademark red balloons.
The beverage definitely makes a perfect treat for fans of IT and its sequel IT: Chapter 2. Of course, the films might not end there – it turns out there’s a possibility for an IT: Chapter 3. Here’s what Pennywise actor Bill Skarsgård himself had to say on the subject:
“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.”
