10 Secret Starbucks Menu Items that are Life Changing

If you’re anything like me, there’s no better way to start your morning trek to class than by picking up a warm skinny vanilla to make those boring classes more bearable or to keep your focus sharp, especially since us students are either way too lazy to whip up our own pot of coffee, or are running late and find ourselves hurrying out the door only to realise we haven’t had our saviour in a cup - AKA our much needed cup of coffee to fuel us for the day. Although many of us would insist that we could never get sick of PSLs (our one true love), they can get tiring. So, if you’re a Starbucks fanatic like me, a self-proclaimed Starbucks connoisseur, and have tried virtually everything on the menu, you must be wondering about that secret menu of theirs. You know, the one you’ve heard about on social media, but aren’t sure if it exists? Well, it’s your lucky day, because the secret menu is very much real. Yes, dreams do come true.
