Just yesterday, I had a moment of Starbucks ennui when my second-shift pick-me-up rang up at a whopping $6.03 for a single, uncomplicated Frappuccino and I was about to swear off the indulgence altogether… until I saw the Starbucks secret menu that’s been floating around the internet over the past few days.
It’s pretty well-accepted that the coffee purveyors (who’ve earned the nickname “four bucks” in recent years because that’s what you usually have to pay for a basic coffee) aren’t in the business of inexpensive java.
But the Starbucks secret menu is compelling enough that you might want to allocate a few snacking dollars to try out some of the on-the-downlow caffeinated flavor sensations on offer at your local Starbucks.
Starbucks secret menu is populated with some off-menu creations that might renew your interest in blended, flavored coffee beverages, all taking known Starbucks elements like Pumpkin Spice Lattes and White Chocolate Mochas, and combining them for new flavor combinations that sound pretty compelling.
For instance, did you know that Starbucks’ secret menu has a Captain Crunch Frappuccino? Oh, yes. Lacking the characteristic mouth-shredding one must endure to enjoy a bowl of crunch berries, the creation is a coffee-free blend of the Strawberries and Creme Frappuccino (now bug free!), toffee, hazelnut and chocolate chips.
Then there’s The Nutella, which is a mocha and hazelnut blend, a Neopolitan Frappuccino, combining strawberry, vanilla and mocha, and something I swear to God I invented, the Tuxedo Mocha- half white mocha, half regular mocha. I want my cut, Mr. Bucks!
