Starbucks Secret Menu

Did you know that Starbucks has a secret menu? I didn’t until I read one of my Facebook friend’s statuses that showed a picture of her daughter holding a Pink Starburst Frappuccino from Starbucks. Not only did it sound delicious, but it looked beautiful. I knew I had to find out what the Starbucks Secret Menu was all about. Starbucks Secret MenuI immediately used my friend Google and searched for the Starbucks Secret Menu. I found 19 pages of different drinks from frappuccinos to teas! Since it was summer time and since I had a gift card I thought I would give my girls a fun little treat and let them pick out a drink from the menu; they were over the top excited. My 9 year old ordered a Red Tuxedo Frapp and my 7 year old ordered the Cotton Candy Frapp. After my oldest tried the Red Tuxedo, which is made from coffee, she asked if I could buy her a Cotton Candy Frapp instead. I sighed and agreed, so I was stuck drinking hers and to be honest, I wish I had the Cotton Candy Frapp, it was sweet like a shake whereas the Red Tuxedo tasted too much like sweet coffee. Starbucks Secret Flavorsย I’m not going to lie or keep secrets, but my girls and I went back to Starbucks a week later to test out more items from the secret menu. During this trip, we were all pleasantly pleased with our choices. Since our drinks were made with Vanilla Bean Frapp they were sweet and flavorful with no coffee taste. starbucks secret menu frapps A week later Starbucks was nice enough to send me a free drink for my birthday and in addition to that, my daughter came to town so I thought I could introduce her to the secret ย menu. She was almost as excited as her little sisters were. On this visit my 9 year old ordered the Pink Starburst Frapp, I ordered the Neopolitan Frapp and my 7 year old re ordered the Rolo Frapp. Once again the drinks were amazing and the Pink Starburst Frapp tasted just like a Starburst candy! My adult daughter decided to go a different route and she ordered a Fuzzy Peach Tea. Sadly, after she took a few drinks of it, I think she wished she had ordered a frappuccino. The Fuzzy Peach Tea had a weird twang to it that was not as refreshing as expected. On a side note, when you receive a free Starbucks drink for your birthday there is no size limit, so don’t judge the size of my drink. Starbucks Fuzzy Peach Tea There are a few things that you need to know before you order from the Starbuck’s Secret Menu. Before you go to Starbucks you need to visit the secret menu website and pick out at least 2 drinks that you are interested in trying. Then you need to either print the recipe or take a picture of it with your phone. The Starbucks staff is trained on a few of these drinks, mainly the most popular ones, but need a little help with the ingredients on the others. When you arrive, simply tell the friendly barista that you want to order from the secret menu and once you place your order ask them if they need the recipe. Most often they will be glad that you brought it. Another important thing that you need to know is that the secret menu can be addicting because there are so many fun and interesting drinks to choose from and they are so good. I hope you have as much fun as my girls and I have had with the Starbucks Secret Menu, feel free to share this little secret! Written by: Aimee Fauci


  1. WHAT?! Mind. Blown!

  2. How fun!! I want to try the cinnamon bun frapp!

  3. This is super neat! I can’t believe I never heard of this. I’m going to have to try a few.

  4. You had me at starbucks! I’m definitely hitting one up this weekend! Thank you so much for sharing this! I’m literally going to share this with everyone that I know!

  5. I wish I hadn’t read this… Only because I already love Starbucks and need no extra help in going to spend my money there. I’m afraid of how much MORE addicted I may become once I try these “secret” drinks! GAH!! Oh, and no judging on the size of your drink from me… I get the big one every time, birthday or not! ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. I usually order the Hot Chocolate because I don’t drink coffee. But now I know there are more options for me. That Red Starburst drink sounds really good.

  7. I had no idea that Starbucks had a secret menu! I am going to tell my daughter and I am sure she will order lots from the secret menu. Thanks for sharing this great secret.

  8. I totally love that starbucks has a secret menu. It has always fascinated me but i’ve never actually ordered anything from it!

  9. Your new design is so pretty! Congratulations.

  10. Maria Oller says

    I had no clue about this secret menu, I am dying to try the cotton candy frapp sounds yummy

  11. I know this now, but how I found out was funny. I was out in the city with one of my teens and her friend. She gave me her phone which had her order on it and I went to order. I told the lady what I wanted and she yelled at me and told me that I had to give her the recipe. So then I proceed to tell her the whole recipe that was typed into my daughters phone. I had no clue. My daughter just said, “read what’s on the screen”.

  12. Nope, never knew about their secret menu. Thanks for posting about it! I just posted this to my Do.Food.Better. Facebook page to let others know!

  13. That is so cool that there is a secret menu. Thanks for filling us in. I’m not a coffee drinker, so now I know what I will order next time I visit!

  14. These drinks look delicious. I love secret menus! They’re like a treasure hunt. Some of the fast food chains have secret menus also.

  15. Jill @ Do Try This at Home says

    Those look delish! Who’da thunk?!?!?

  16. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says

    I know a lot of places have these secret menus, but I had no idea that Starbucks was one of them!! Love this.

  17. A secret menu?? I need the special handshake. LOL the Rolo looks delish!

  18. What fun! I would really like to try that Rolo Frapp myself. I will have to order something from the secret menu next time I visit Starbucks.

  19. I love food secrets! I clicked the link and am about to check it all out! I live in NYC so we have a Starbucks every other block, I should be able to try everything!

  20. Shannon Gosney says

    i love Starbucks. I hadn’t heard of these drinks before. I’ll definitely have to check them out.

  21. Amanda McMahon says

    I’ve been there hundreds of times and had no idea! Thanks for the tips!

  22. I had no idea this existed! I really want to try a Rolo Frappe now. That sounds so good!

  23. ROLO FRAPP- Where have you been my whole life! I ammmmmm soooooo going tomorrow!

  24. Melissa Smith says

    I’ve heard of the secret menu but have never ordered anything from it. Thanks for the heads up about bringing the recipes to Sarbuck’s. I would’ve assumed that the employees knew how to make everything.

  25. I had no clue there was a secret menu! I have a Starbucks gift card I need to use so I’ll have to check this out.

  26. Wow, what? I had no idea! This is fabulous. My girls always get the same drinks everytime we go to starbucks, this would be a nice treat!

  27. This is great. I love starbucks although I have been trying to be good an not go there…lol. Quite a few places have secret menus some even include you having to do secret knocks on the counter lol.

  28. When I lived in England, I pretty much visited Starbucks at least three – four times a week. However, as Trinidad does not have Starbucks I have to be contented with reading posts like these and saying to myself ‘One day…I’ll be back…” ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. All of these sound completely tasty! I really want to try the secret menu sometime. My friend orders something off there, but that cotton candy frapp sounds really tasty. Especially for a summer treat.

  30. That’s awesome that you get a free drink for your birthday. I think these sound great!

  31. Catherine S says

    I can’t wait to go try the Cotton Candy Frapp when I get off of work. I never knew they had a secret menu, thanks for sharing.

  36. I didn’t know this information but I have going to find out more about it now, LOL. I will have to pass this info around too. How fun!

  37. I’ve heard about Starbucks’ secret menu but never wanted to really know what the drinks were because I already go there practically every day and am addicted to frappuccinos. I am in so much trouble now after reading your post and seeing those photos!!

  38. Cotton candy, really? Oh man, that sounds heavenly.

  39. That looks like a fun time with the kids at Starbucks. Great way to spend a summer afternoon

  40. WHO KNEW??? I feel a little cheated…..I’m headed to Starbucks with info in hand! Thanks for sharing with the rest of us!

  41. The cotton candy one looks the best! I am impressed that they are so willing to create crazy drinks! It seems like great customer service on their part.

  42. I had no idea! I’m not a big Starbucks coffee fan but I love peach tea … so definitely will have to try that!!

  43. A cotton candy frappucino?? I MUST try that some time!

  44. I had no idea that Starbucks had a secret menu. I don’t drink starbucks but my Daughter can’t start her week without one. I wonder if she knows about this.

  45. Ashley Gill says

    I am close friends with a Store Manager of a Starbucks back home. He recommends delicious things from time to time. Their Secret Menu ROCKS!!! I have a little extra $$ on my Starbucks card.. I might have to make a detour next week!

  46. The rolo frappe sounds interesting but I’m so addicted to getting a coffee frappucino with a shot of espresso added.

  47. I don’t get to Starbucks very often, but even then I tend not to stray from my favorites. I was quite delighted though when the barista told me that I could have a peppermint mocha latte all year round, thanks to the peppermint syrup.

  48. Jennifer Williams says

    We used to go there all the time back home and I never knew about their secret menu. I will have to find where the local one is – we moved and I have no idea – so I can go check out this secret menu.

  49. I’ve heard tell of this secret menu! Sounds like they’re some great options for the momma who needs her coffee but doesn’t want her kiddos hyped up on the caffeine!

  50. I swear I am in the minority here….I get drip coffee at Starbucks. Every. Single. Time. Sometimes I’ll get wild and get green tea. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  51. The red tuxedo frap looks fantastic! Thanks for sharing this. I will remember to find the secret menu before I go next time!

  52. I had no idea they had a secret menu. Next time I go, I will have to check this out ๐Ÿ™‚

  53. LOL. Both my husband and I used to work for starbucks and while the baristas are VERY accommodating the secret menu isn’t really a thing. promise! These drink combinations do sound pretty tasty though!

  54. I had no idea they made these kind of drinks. I wonder why they keep them a secret. I hate coffee and have never gone there, if I had known about this I would have definitely visited.

  55. We go all the time. The ladies and I have never heard of all these yummy awesome extras. Will have to look further into it. Thanks for sharing!

  56. I had no idea that Starbucks had a secret menu. These flavors sound heavenly so I don’t think they will be able to keep the secret for long.

  57. I love Starbucks and my gold card so yummy but had no clue about the secret menu. I am so going to go check that out.

  58. You had me at Starbucks! I’ve had the Tuxedo before and something called the Roasted Chestnut and LOVED THEM! I may need to print this and take it to my Baristas ASAP… ! Thanks for sharing the secrets ๐Ÿ˜€

  59. ooh girl, I’m not a SB person, but… I have to say, Rolo! YES and judge? NO WAY on your birthday you’re allowed to have WHATEVER and by the way, no calories! LOL

  60. Oh my goodness, these sound amazing! I really want to try the Rolo Frapp – YUM! Thanks for sharing!

  61. OMG really? A secret menu? They must be hiding it from me because I’ll never leave! Looks like I’ll be making a trip to Starbucks to try out all of these fraps!!!!!

  62. VERY cool!! I had noooo idea!!!

  63. Oooh, this is exciting! The only secret recipe I knew about was the Butterbeer Frap, and they can only make it around the holidays when they have the toffee syrup. Thanks so much for this! The rolo one looks delightful!

  64. I heard rumors that the secret menu has a Butterbeer Frappachino on it which makes my Harry Potter-lovin’ heart just skip a beat. I’m too scared to actually go order it because I know I’m going to get the kid who just started there and will look at me like, “Huh, lady?” It’s something to aim for in the future, though! ๐Ÿ™‚

  65. I knew they had a secret menu, but I’m such a creature of habit. It’s always the same – Grande Decaf Americano with SF caramel. ๐Ÿ™‚

  66. I have seen so many of these secret menu recipes, but I still haven’t tried any, but I’m thinking that I should!! That Rolo frapp is looking tasty!!!

  67. I love the Starbucks Secret Menu!!! My fave item is the Butter Pecan Frap!! I have also tried the Barbie Frap and it was good too!! My fave thing to order right now is the Passionfruit Tea/Lemonade ๐Ÿ™‚

  68. Oh My! I love hearing secrets and this is a good one! I’m in a bit of a hurry, got to go look up that secret menu and head on out the door! I’m thinking about that Cinnamon Roll Frappe!!

  69. Judge you on the size of your free birthday frappuccino?!?! Never. Ok, well. Its a little small for my taste. I’ve never tried the secret menu. I would probably prefer the coffee based drinks over the vanilla.

    • says

      Go check out the menu!!!! It’s fun and addicting..I already have my next few drinks picked out! The non coffee based ones are much cheaper!
