Hey there, King of Starbucks. 👑😏

Oh…you thought I was talking to you? 😅 Well, if you’ve been indulging in any of our Starbucks secret menu drinks lately you might as well be King. 😏

However, we were calling out this brand new pumpkin drink – fresh off the Starbucks secret menu! We’re calling it the Starbucks Pumpkin King and lucky for you, I’m sharing exactly how you can order one on your own and become King (or Queen) this fall. 🍂

If you’re the ruler of ALL things pumpkin and want to mix up your pumpkin drink game the next time you head to Starbucks, then you need to get your hands on this tasty chai drink. 🙌 It’s got slightly less caffeine than a coffee-based drink and we can’t get enough of it, no matter the time of day!

One TikTok user recently shared this new concoction, calling it the Scarecrow drink, but after trying it for ourselves, we’ve dubbed it the Starbucks Pumpkin King. It’s festive, packed with pumpkin, and unlike any secret menu drink you’ve had yet! 😍

So what’s in the Starbucks Pumpkin King? 🎃

  • Iced chai tea latte (the drink base)
  • 3 pumps vanilla
  • Pumpkin cold foam
  • Pumpkin powder

Sold already? 🤤

Here’s how you can order one for yourself:

“Hey! Can I please get a venti Iced Chai Tea Latte with 3 pumps of vanilla? Add pumpkin cold foam with pumpkin powder on top. Thank you!”

*Note: Keep in mind that this recipe is not going to be a mobile-friendly order since you cannot add the pumpkin cold foam on the app.

When ordering different sizes for this drink, make sure to adjust the number of vanilla pumps accordingly (the barista will take care of the rest):

  • Tall: 1 pump vanilla
  • Grande: 2 pumps vanilla
  • Venti: 3 pumps vanilla

Want to try it with less sugar? 

One of our Hip taste testers tried the Pumpkin King with no pumps of vanilla in order to keep the sugar content down and she said it was great while still just as pumpkiny as ever! If you’re sticking to a low sugar lifestyle, this modification might be perfect for you! 👌

Here’s what my Hip sidekick, Alana, had to say about the Pumpkin King drink:

“This is by far my favorite Fall pumpkin drink – I’ve actually ordered it two days in a row already because I’m that obsessed! It’s not overly pumpkin tasting – the pumpkin foam and the yummy spices in the chai blend absolutely perfect together! Even my husband loved sipping on this drink and he doesn’t even like pumpkin!

If you’re going to order this drink (which you totally have to!) then I recommend drinking it from their new adult sippy cup lids because you’ll have a better experience and get a little bit of all the flavors… a straw just won’t be the same.”

We’ve crowned ourselves Queen of the hottest Starbucks deals.

    Pumpkin chai is my favorite! I usually make it at home, but ran out of chai. I accidentally discovered in the Starbucks app yesterday when ordering a PSL that it had the option to add chai!! Yum!

    • Kolikobi

      Yum! Please share how to make at home!

      • Couponanimal

        I use Oregon Chai powder and Torani pumpkin syrup. Super easy and a nice treat! You can usually find both items on amazon or walmart. Enjoy!

    How can I get this hot?

    • mld0614

      Just say hot instead of iced. I get it all the time and it’s sooo good

  3. eatketo

    How many grams of sugar is in this? A regular latte is like eating dessert, this has to be like eating two desserts.

  4. kiera

    You can always ask for sugar free vanilla – not sure about how much sugar is in the cold foam. Sounds great I would love to try this!

    20% off any Starbucks drink in the Target Cartwheel app!!!!! Mama’s getting one of these tomorrow👍🏼

  6. Kristle

    Just ordered it. Super yummy!

  7. super-couper

    I just ordered it, but it came to $7.19! 😱 I said the exact words in the post, but maybe something went wrong?

    • kiera

      Customizations generally raise the price of drinks – you should use your stars to cut down on the costs.

  8. Cindy

    This was excellent. I did nonfat milk and sugar free vanilla. The barista at Starbucks was impressed! Never had that happen before.

  9. Erica

    Do you get the standard amount of pumps for Chai or is it half chai half vanilla? 🙂

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      The base is Chai tea so you only need to tell them how many pumps of the vanilla you want.

  10. Kayla

    Is there anyway to have this made hot???

  11. Guy

    If they are out of pumpkin cold foam what is a good substitute?
