Starbucks fall secret menu drinks are finally back!


“Every morning, I see at least ten students holding Starbucks in their hands in our campus,” comments Ammara Dadabhay (10), “Including me.” Clearly, Mustangs seem to truly enjoy Starbucks drinks.


Although Starbucks secret menu drinks are not really “secret” anymore, no other coffee shops than Starbucks has the “secret” recipes for its delicious, delightful, and satisfying secret menu drinks.


Here are some of the delicious Starbucks secret menu drinks that Mustangs can enjoy for this fall season:


Pumpkin Spice Choco-Chai: Instead of coffee, this drink consists of sweet chai tea mixed with some pumpkin spice syrup and mocha syrup. This is highly recommended for those who prefer tea over coffee. Make sure to add an extra pump of chai to experience the rich taste of chai!

Caramel Pumpkin Macchiato: This is just like a caramel macchiato with some pumpkin spice toppings and pumpkin spice sauce instead of vanilla syrup. This delicious macchiato can be enjoyed either hot or iced.

Perfect Pumpkin Frappuccino: This is a pumpkin spice frappuccino with vanilla bean powder. Make sure to get some caramel drizzled inside!

Pumpkin Hot Chocolate: This drink, hot chocolate with a slight touch of pumpkin spice sauce, is a good warm drink to get on a chilly night.

Harry Potter’s Pumpkin Juice: Without traveling all the way to Orlando, Florida, the famous pumpkin juice at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter can be enjoyed in our neighborhood! This is a cool, refreshing drink consisting of apple juice mixed with the special pumpkin spice sauce.

Fall Mashup Frappuccino: This frappuccino is a mash-up of pumpkin spice sauce, toffee nut syrup, caramel drizzle, and mocha syrup added to the vanilla bean frappuccino. For the same great taste but lower calories, take out the pumpkin spice sauce.

Pumpkin Patch Latte: This is a pumpkin spice latte that gives a slight taste of matcha green tea at the same time. Make sure to add some whipping cream!

Cinnamon Bon Hot Chocolate: Experience the same great taste of a tasty cinnamon bun! This is a hot chocolate with a pump of mocha syrup, white mocha syrup, cinnamon dolce syrup, and vanilla syrup.

Strawberry Express: This drink is the strawberries and crème frappuccino added with a frappuccino roast and some extra strawberry flavoring. This frappuccino gives a well-mixed taste of sweet strawberries and espresso.

OMG! Brownie Frappuccino: This frappuccino is a combination of a double chocolate chunk brownie and a coffee based frappuccino. This creamy, chocolaty drink is just like a perfect dessert!
