Secret Menus: Starbucks
So we’re taking a page out of the Book of Netflix and bringing to you our very first short series on your favorite restaurants’ secret menus. Secret menus are the industry’s worst kept secrets that hold a plethora of new and exciting ways to enjoy the best places in town. Since it’s midterms week here in Gamecock country, we thought we’d start with a caffeine fix.
(All items priced by size)
Cake Batter Frappuccino
Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you! Add a few pumps of almond flavor to a vanilla bean creme frap and turn any day into a celebration of your existence.
Order a caramel frap and add 1-2 pumps of hazelnut syrup and java chips with a caramel and mocha drizzle for a drinkable candy bar. With this creation you don’t have to pick a side of the infamous Twix feud!
If you’re like the rest of us and would spread nutella on just about anything, now you can drink it! Order a caffe misto with 1 pump of chocolate and hazelnut syrup and ask for a caramel drizzle.
Cotton Candy Frappuccino
Sate fair not in town? Craving fluffy pink sugar? Order a vanilla bean frap with 1-2 extra pumps of raspberry syrup for a quick fix.
Need to pull an all nighter to study for that midterm or finish the last 3 seasons of Breaking bad? Order this energy-laden drink: 4 shots of espresso, 4 pumps of white chocolate syrup and fill cup with milk (iced or hot).
Thin Mint Frappuccino
It’s Girl Scout cookie season, so here’s a liquid thin mint. Get a Tazo green tea creme frap with 2 pumps of chocolate syrup and 1 pump of mint. Ask them to top it with java chips for that same cookie crunch!
If you’re a nerd like me you spent most of the 2000′s wondering what butterbeer tasted like as you roamed the halls of Hogwarts on the pages of JK’s famous series. Well, wonder no longer. Order a caramel latte with 2 pumps of toffee nut and cinnamon dolce syrup and prepare to taste magic.
Cinnamon Roll Frappuccino
Order a vanilla bean frap with 2 or more pumps of cinnamon dolce syrup to feel like you’re breaking your New Year’s resolutions without eating a box of six gooey Cinnabons from the mall.
Ferrero Rocher Frappuccino
Ever seen that strange commercial where the gods of olympus sit around eating Ferrero Rocher? No? Just me? Ok, well if you’re feeling indulgent and can’t live without the marriage of chocolate and hazelnut order a double chocolate chip frap and have them add 1 pump of mocha syrup and 2 pumps of hazelnut syrup.
Are you the type of person who loves camping? Or just loves the person who thought up smashing chocolate and roasted marshmallows between graham crackers? You can’t have an open flame in your dorm but you can order a java chip frap with 1 of pump cinnamon dolce and toffee nut syrup.
