Starbucks is known for having an over-the-top and deliciously classified secret menu that's full of fun drinks like the Love Bug Frappuccino and the Ferrero Rocher Frappuccino. And while we love ordering and taste testing them all, we rarely get a peek at how these drinks come to be . . . until now. One of the coffee chain's baristas recently shared his process for coming up with his own recipe for a special secret menu item request that had yet to exist: the Winnie the Pooh Frappuccino.
After a customer asked if a Winnie the Pooh drink existed, Starbucks barista and TikTok user Ryan Gawlik (@coffeefanatics) conducted a deep internet search for the secret menu item. When he came up empty handed, he went into brainstorm mode to invent the perfect Pooh-themed blended frap. The final product? A golden honey and cinnamon Frappuccino to which Ryan said, "it tastes just like a graham cracker!" Here's how he recommends ordering a Winnie the Pooh Frappuccino:
- Order a grande vanilla bean Frappuccino.
- Add one pump of honey and cinnamon dolce syrup and a dash of cinnamon powder.
- Ask for caramel drizzle inside the cup and on top of the whipped cream.
- Thank your barista for making your personalized Winnie the Pooh drink order!
Keep in mind this Frappuccino isn't an official Starbucks menu item and you more than likely will be asked to repeat your requested drink order a few times. On the bright side, the Winnie the Pooh Frappuccino doesn't require any seasonal ingredients so you'll be able to enjoy this blended beverage all year long!
