I have been meaning to try some of the Secret Menu items for a long time now, but I just finally created them on the app for easy future ordering.  So far I have only tried two, one chocolate, one not.  I just realized that I did not take pictures of either of these, but they did not look too different from the base drinks, so not a huge deal (just not as visually pretty).

Recipe as listed online:
–Java Chip Frappuccino (or double chocolate chip if preferred)
–1 pump of Cinnamon Dolce syrup
–1 pump of Toffee Nut syrup
–Whipped cream blended in
–Top with whipped cream and Cinnamon Dolce sprinkles

I ordered this on my phone, so I was not able to have the whipped cream blended in, and I went with the Double Chocolatey Chip Frap (especially since I feel like S’mores flavored items never taste enough like chocolate).

I felt like the taste was more toffee almost a gingerbread flavor, much more so than s’mores, but very good.  I might order this again during the holiday season once I move out West to a warmer climate.



So this is not chocolate in any way, shape, or form, but it is still a fun secret menu item.

Recipe as listed online:
–Optional: Line cup with caramel drizzle
–Ask for a Creme Frappuccino base. Don’t skimp on the fat by asking for skim or 2% milk as whole milk is required for the right consistency
–Add 3 pumps of caramel syrup
–Add 3 pumps of toffee nut syrup
–Top with caramel drizzle

Again, this was ordered on the app, so I did not have them line the cup, and I did go with Soy Milk due to an allergy (I am allergic to rBGH, so not knowing what brand milk any particular Starbucks uses, I go for the safe option).  Also, as I could not just ask for a creme base on the app, I created this with the Vanilla Bean Frapp, and modified the vanilla down to one scoop.  I think the Vanilla may have helped balance this drink though.  This was tasty, and definitely reminiscent of Butterbeer, but it has been over a year since I last had it at Wizarding World of Harry Potter, so I am not sure how close.  I might dial back the caramel a little next time, but otherwise, very tasty.
