Another drink that borrows its name and flavor from the Girl Scout Cookie repertoire is this creation, which, according to commenter Julie A. is made by blending the Tazo Green Tea Crème Frappuccino with chocolate syrup and java chips. According to her, it's "heaven in a cup." We imagine adding a pump of peppermint syrup wouldn't hurt the combination either.

11 Drinks on Starbucks' Secret Menu

Last August I had a revelatory experience. A good friend, and Starbucks non-enthusiast, had accompanied me to the local 'bucks to pick up a quick drink.

I was floored. How had she gotten this intel? And how had it evaded me for so long? And man was this drink good. Naturally, I began to wonder about the other off-the-menu items I had been missing out on, and how many there were. As it turned out, quite a lot. Green Eyes and Double-Dirty Chais, Zebra Mochas and Crunch Berry Frappuccinos - an entire "secret menu," revealed.

When I shared what I'd learned shortly thereafter, it sparked a flood of comments from fans and haters, former employees and current Starbucks baristas alike. Most were in fervent agreement about one particular point: These drinks and their oh-so-clever names are not universal, so if you're planning on ordering one, you better know how to tell your barista to prepare it.
