Cocoa Puffs Frappuccino

Cocoa Puffs Frappuccino is a customized Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino that became popular enough to make it a secret menu item.

The drink is made with chestnut praline syrup and it’s a seasonal drink since the syrup is only available in the late fall and winter.

Starbucks baristas aren’t trained to make secret menu items since they’re not part of the Starbucks menu so you will need to order it by providing the drink recipe, including ingredients and specifications.

How It Tastes

The chestnut praline syrup and mocha combine to create a sweet and nutty flavored drink but it doesn’t completely match up with the Cocoa Puffs cereal taste.

The mocha sauce is made with bittersweet chocolate, so you’ll taste a slight bitterness.

What’s in the Drink

  • Base drink: Mocha Frappuccino
    All secret menu drinks start with an official menu drink and this one is the Mocha Frappuccino.
  • Customization for a grande drink: Add 2 pumps of chestnut praline syrup
    Chestnut praline syrup is only available during the winter months, so this secret menu drink is only available while the syrup is in stock.

NOTE: Instead of chestnut praline syrup, you can also try it with toffee nut syrup, which will give the drink a nutty flavor.
