Here’s what’s in this delicious Starbucks Cookies and Cream Cold Brew:

  • White Mocha Syrup
  • Cold Foam
  • Mocha Syrup (in Cold Foam)
  • Mocha Cookie Crumble Topping

Here’s how you can order one for yourself:

“Hi! Can I please have a Grande Sweet Cream Cold Foam Cold Brew with just 1 pump of Vanilla Syrup, add 3 pumps of White Mocha Syrup with 1 pump of regular Mocha Syrup blended in the Cold Foam and Mocha Cookie Crumble Topping on top? Thanks!”

*Unfortunately, this secret menu drink is not mobile-order friendly since the cold foam cannot be modified and the cookie crumble topping cannot be added from the app.

When ordering this mouth-watering drink in different sizes, don’t forget to include the necessary adjustments for syrup pumps. Keep in mind the Mocha Cookie Crumble Topping will be adjusted automatically by your barista.

Here are our recommended adjustments for your Cookies & Cream Cold Brew:


  • Change Vanilla Syrup to 1/2 pump (this will be a barista guestimation) 
  • Add 2 pumps of White Mocha Syrup
  • Change Mocha Syrup (for Cold Foam) to 1/2 pump


  • Change Vanilla Syrup to 2 pumps
  • Add 4 pumps of White Mocha Syrup
  • Change Mocha Syrup (for Cold Foam) to 2 pumps


  • Change Vanilla Syrup to 3 pumps
  • Add 5 pumps of White Mocha Syrup
  • Change Mocha Syrup (for Cold Foam) to 3 pumps

Here’s what Stetson had to say about his secret menu drink:

“I’ve recently become a fan of cold brew drinks and I have tried some that were great and some not so great! However, I’m a huge fan of cookies and cream in literally anything so I was so pumped to try this drink! Plus, it’s even topped with cookie crumbles so you better believe I was stoked. 🤩

My first sip took me down memory lane when I use to chug Nesquik after grade school. YUM. This cookies and cream cold brew is so creamy yet so light and delicious. It also has the perfect amount of sweetness and totally hit the spot. Without a doubt, this drink has taken the #1 spot on the Starbucks secret menu for me which is saying a lot because I’ve taste-tested them ALL.“

Bottoms up, Hip2Savers!

    The directions on how to order this drink totally cracked me up! That’s a lot of info!

      • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

        So Smart!! 😃 💡

  2. runnergirl838

    Curious how much this cost with all the customizations?

    • sc

      I’m curious what the calories and fat calories would be on this!??

      • Ashley

        Right. Our coffee addictions are making us all on the verge of diabetes. And I’m not trying to be funny.

        • K

          Most if not all people who are diabetic have other factors. It can be genetics.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      A few of our team members have ordered for around $7. Hope this helps!

      • Dkp91576

        With a reward, all these customizations are free so I would definitely try it once I have one available. NJ – Grande cold brew is 4.25, mocha is .60, cold foam is $1, cookie toppings is .50, but if you do sugar free vanilla syrup, it is free.

        • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

          Great idea on using your rewards! My son likes super expensive drinks, so I save my rewards for those.

        • BlueWaterGirl

          Do you mean using 150 stars? I thought they still charged 25 stars for each customization, this this would be 200+ stars. No?

          • Tylianna

            Nope! 150* gets you a free drink with customizations. 25* adds customizations to a drink you’re going to pay for

    I saw this in my google feed the other day. Sounds yummy but I always halve the sugar (or less) in Starbucks drinks so I’ll have to figure out what to cut.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      One thing you can do is change the vanilla to the sugar-free vanilla.

      • BlueWaterGirl

        Great idea but notrmally fake sugar changes the taste so much in coffee. How about their sugar free syrup? Bad? I only consume 1000 calories a day so maybe this can be a OMAD item. 😁😁😁

    Got it this morning. Its really good but not worth $7 bucks in my personal imo. Taste delicious tho.

  5. faithanne

    Is this super sweet?

  6. Gigi

    I too use my stars to try these types of drinks. I keep stars on hand specially for this purpose. Thank you!!!

    I’ve tried to do the secret orders and the baristas start asking each other and then they’re not sure how to ring it up. It went south on a drive thru Starbucks (was trying to order safely when our Covid numbers were up again) and one in Target. Maybe only do this inside at the regular Starbucks location. Even so, the directions are alot and I think they just need to start offering some of these orders as a temporary menu option.

    • MommySpendsLess

      I agree! I’m not a coffee drinker so ordering at Starbucks is intimidating for me but my 11yo daughter likes their Frappuccinos (only occasionally and instead of getting another treat like a milkshake or ice cream). We recently tried their faux butterbeer Frappucinno, which wasn’t nearly as complicated as this one to order but even then I was pulling up the recipe on my phone in the drive thru so I could read it off correctly.
      I can understand if they don’t update their regular menu frequently (there would be a lot of costs in menu boards, training, etc.) but it would be very nice if they distributed a printable weekly or monthly cheat sheet and kept a copy for their employees to see behind the counter with the recipe for the 10 or 15 most popular/currently trending “secret menu” drinks listed.

      • Michell

        The secret menu items are made up by individuals not Starbucks. The some baristas might know some of them but they wouldn’t be on their menu.

    I have a free coupon for a holiday beverage or handcrafted espresso beverage and a free bakery coupon. Will trade the pair for $3 Amazon if anyone is interested. Rudie0306 at aol.

    I will have to add some more sweetner as I find starbucks drinks to strong but can’t wait to try it.
