10 Starbucks secret menu items to order immediately
Whether you need help getting going in the morning or a pick-me-up throughout the day, Starbucks has just what you need for a little energy boost. Thanks to social media, the famous “secret menu” from the coffee chain has picked up in popularity, blessing us with items such as the Pennywise and Jack Skellington Frappuccinos.
While the “secret menu” doesn’t contain official Starbucks items, just about any location can complete these iconic drinks as long as you know the recipe. Here are 10 “secret menu” items you simply have to try the next time you visit your local Starbucks.
1. Jack Skellington

This The Nightmare Before Christmas-inspired drink is exactly what you need to complete your Halloween. Like many “secret menu” items, this Jack Skellington Frappuccino doesn’t actually exist, but you can order it if you know the recipe. First, ask for a pumpkin spice Frappuccino, and then add in a shot of chai syrup. Take it up a notch by adding in a shot of espresso for more caffeine. If you add whipped cream, it’ll make your drink look like the snow-filled Christmas Town.
Making its original launch in 2017 following the first It movie, the Pennywise Frappuccino is making the rounds once again following the debut of It Chapter Two. Order a vanilla bean Frappuccino with strawberry purée on top to float your way out of Starbucks with a Pennywise drink in hand.
While this drink is listed as being exclusive to Disney parks, most locations should be able to make it aside from the matcha whipped cream. Order a vanilla bean Frappuccino with blueberry juice and dragon fruit blended in.
This one is a little more complicated as the drizzle takes some time to make since it’s not readily available. For the frappe, order a vanilla bean Frappuccino with freeze-dried whole blackberries, line the cup with the green drizzle and top with whipped cream. To make the green drizzle, take eight pumps white mocha sauce, three pumps toasted coconut syrup, three scoops of matcha and mix in a pitcher until smooth.
Can’t make it to Hogsmeade? Visit your local Starbucks to snag a delicious Harry Potter butterbeer-inspired drink instead. Line a cup with caramel drizzle, ask for creme Frappuccino base with whole milk, add three pumps caramel syrup, three pumps toffee nut syrup and top with caramel drizzle.
This is the perfect treat for all those times you’ll be sitting around the fire in the crisp fall air. Order a java chip Frappuccino with one pump of cinnamon dolce syrup, one pump of toffee nut syrup, whipped cream blended in and topped with cinnamon dolce sprinkles.
7. Chocolate Dalmatian
This secret menu item contains white chocolate mocha, java chips and chocolate chips all mixed into a must-have drink that will help you celebrate Disney’s forthcoming live-action 101 Dalmatians film.
8. “Liquid cocaine”
This one is a guaranteed pick-me-up. Ask your barista for four shots of espresso, four pumps of white chocolate syrup, ice to fill a grande cup and then fill it with milk.
9. Cadbury Creme Egg
Who says you can only enjoy Cadbury Creme Eggs once a year? This secret menu frappe will help you enjoy that delicious Easter chocolate year round. Ask for a java chip Frappuccino with two shots espresso, vanilla bean powder, caramel syrup and vanilla syrup. Ta-da! A Cadbury Creme Egg in liquid form.
10. Pumpkin pie
Only available in October and November, the pumpkin pie frapp is the perfect drink for next fall. Order a pumpkin spice Frappuccino with one-to-two pumps cinnamon dolce syrup, whipped cream blended in and top with cinnamon dolce sprinkles.
