Your Guide to the Starbucks Secret Menu

Its succulent aroma and promise of caffeinated bliss have customers lining up outside the door. As one of the largest and most prominent restaurant chains in the nation, Starbucks is our go-to for all things coffee-related. Everyone comes to adopt their preferred item on the menu, whether it is a sugary sweet blend or espresso based drink. But beyond those listed favorites, there exists a “secret menu” full of decadent delights that are hidden from the naked eye. Just say the word and your barista will concoct any one of these undisclosed treats:

  1. Dirty Chai

This is a fun twist on a classic. The dirty chai adds a splash of espresso to our cherished Chai Tea Latte.

  1. Cookie Dough Frappaccino

For the customer with a sweet tooth, this recipe is all the rave. The beverage is based in Starbucks’ Cinnamon Dolce Cream Cappuccino with a few additions: mocha syrup, java chips, and a cookie crumble topping.

  1. Banana Nut Frappaccino

This drink takes the moist, succulent taste of the banana nut muffin into liquid form. What could be better? For frothy, fruity perfection, this drink adds a whole banana to the Hazelnut Frappacinno.

  1. S’mores Hot Chocolate

You don’t need to gather around the campfire to enjoy Starbucks’ S’mores Hot Chocolate. Reminiscent of crunchy graham crackers and gooey marshmallows, this drink features chestnut praline syrup and is topped with whip cream and mocha drizzle.

  1. White Chocolate Cinnamon Chai

Indicative of its name, this drink creates the perfect trifecta of flavors. It is rich and indulgent, with an added spice of cinnamon.

  1. Cha Cha Latte

For the tea lovers, try this blend of Matcha green tea and chai. Although a seemingly unlikely combination, the two teas compliment each other well into a single savory concoction with a refreshing kick. Enjoy it either iced or hot.

  1. Turtle Machiato

Inspired by chocolate turtles, this drink is chalk full of nutty, caramel goodness. It is truly a feast for the senses, combining mocha and caramel syrup, espresso, and milk, topped with a criss-cross caramel and mocha syrup design over fresh whip or foam.

  1. Raspberry Caramel Machiato

This pink treat combines the best of both worlds: sweet caramal with a fruity addition. It is made the same way as a Caramel Machiato but substitutes raspberry syrup for the vanilla syrup often found at the bottom of the drink.
