Get Ready for National Frappé Day!

Did you know that National Frappé Day is observed on October 7th? This day celebrates the cold, yummy, blended drinks that are usually made with coffee/espresso and topped with whipped cream.

Plus, did you know that Starbucks can make a variety of “secret” Frappuccino drinks that are not on the menu? Keep in mind that depending on what drink you’re ordering and what add-ins there are, you may be required to pay a little extra for these add-in items (such as bananas, syrups, etc).

Also, it’s really important when requesting a “secret” drink that you make note of the recipe and not just the name – as not all Baristas are familiar with the drink names.

Here are 15 Frappuccino beverages you won’t find listed on the Starbucks menu, and what you’ll need to say when ordering them.

1.) Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Frappuccino

  • Add Mocha Sauce (1 pump Tall, 1 ½ Grande, 2 Venti), 1 scoop of java chips (2 for Venti) and Cinnamon Dolce Syrup (1 pump Tall, 1 ½ Grande, 2 Venti) blended into a Pumpkin Spice Crème Frappuccino.
