Trying TikTok’s recommended Starbucks drinks



Try out Starbuck’s delicious secret menu drink: the chocolate-covered strawberry refresher.

Lydia Sarbacker, Staff Writer

These days TikTok gives everyone a lot of new trends to try out, one of the most popular being Starbucks secret menu items that are just too delicious to pass up.

All over TikTok, different creators and baristas post their favorite Starbucks secret items that are sure to entice one to try the overpriced beverage. This past week my bank account has taken a hit after trying out some of the most delicious and unique sounding coffee in order to find the best secret menu Starbucks drink. However, it seems as if you cannot go wrong with any Starbucks drink packed full of sweet, sugary goodness that makes stopping in at your nearest Starbucks and paying seven dollars for a coffee very worth it. 

Chocolate-covered strawberries drink: 

 Order a Pink Drink with vanilla sweet cream cold foam with mocha in the foam. This drink gets a stunning rating of a 7/10, considering points for creativity. Although daunting, this pink and brown drink does taste very similar to a chocolate-covered strawberry, the sweet chocolate perfectly balances the fruity pink drink taste. This mixture is the perfect spin on the classic pink drink that is so popular these days, adding some extra spice and making the refreshing drink more chocolate-like. 

Iced blonde latte with a twist:

A normal iced blonde latte with two pumps vanilla and two pumps white mocha, complete with everyone’s favorite addition, the vanilla cream cold brew foam. The cold brew foam happens to be pretty pricey but completes the drink and takes your coffee to a whole new level. For this drink, I would give it a rating of 5/10 as it seemed to be a pretty basic coffee. Although good, out of all special menu items Starbucks can make I would recommend trying something more fun, but those looking for a staple classic coffee for every day should try this concoction out! 

Apple pie frappuccino:

Including a creme base frappuccino with two pumps of both caramel and cinnamon dolce with heavy cream and apple juice. This drink in particular was a pleasant surprise as I had no idea what to expect, but the first taste was full of pure delight. Full of sugar and sweetness, the caramel aspect mixed perfectly with the apple juice creating an ideal tart frappuccino for those that enjoy apple flavoring. This drink would be especially fitting for fall combining some of the most classic fall flavors creating a sort of caramel apple tasting drink full of flavor, receiving a rating of 8.5/10.

Strawberry cheesecake frappuccino:

Created with strawberry cream frappuccino with three pumps cinnamon dolce, four pumps vanilla bean powder and four pumps white mocha. This fruity sweet drink takes the cake, receiving my highest rating of 9/10. This drink was packed full of syrupy goodness incorporating multiple flavors combined to make the perfect frappuccino. However, the drink did not receive a perfect score because it tasted really nothing like cheesecake but was still a very great drink that I encourage everyone to try out!
