Sharing is caring!

The secret’s out!

I’m featured on Refinery29 again, spilling the coffee (not the tea—I’m not messy) on the best Starbucks secret menu drinks

The first time I was featured in Refinery29, a media outlet where women feel, see and claim their power, was in this article about this influencer from Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop

She staged her wedding that over 200-thousand people watched—and couldn’t look away!

If you didn’t know by now, I like to talk, so in these articles, I don’t hold back! 

Concerning Starbucks, I dish all about the past, present and now of my favorite beverage that’s *not* on the menu.


My Advice on Refinery29- The Best Starbucks Secret Menu Drinks Including Caramel Apple Spice & Everything Nice + Tie-Dye Frappuccino for the summer


How do you order what’s *not* on the menu?

 Say whaaa? 

I get it if you’re not in the *know*—so let me save you with this one. 

You won’t have to knock twice, spin around and wiggle your nose like Bewitched to order my favorite concoction. 

Nuh uh—I’m giving it all to you in this article! Along with 14 more Starbucks fans sharing their favorites that you probably didn’t know about either!

My Advice on Refinery29- The Best Starbucks Secret Menu Drinks Including Caramel Apple Spice & Everything Nice aka Caramel Apple Cider


It’s no secret what I’m drinking in this picture. It’s Starbucks’ latest summer fantasy, Tie-Dye Frappuccino!

On the menu—but for a limited time only. It tastes like sunshine, candy-cake!

My drink here is melting in the 90-degree summer temps. You should have seen it when the barista slid it on the counter and called my name. 

It was actually tie-dyed with colorful sprinkle dust in the yellow drink, and on top of that sprinkled whipped cream.

Don’t miss out on getting this frap before each location is sold out. 

That happened to me a few years ago when I had my tastebuds all ready for a Starbucks Unicorn drink. 


And just like that—two days out, and then magic—poof and it was gone. 

No more ingredients at any location for baristas to concoct any more Unicorns.


What gift cards do you want to see in a giveaway?

PS— Wouldn’t it be fun to have a new giveaway here, maybe to Starbucks so you can get the next *it* drink before poof—it’s gone?

Tell me—I know you’re dying to say it! 

In the comments below, reply with your favorite store that you’d want a gift card to?


My style with whimsy tip

I wear summer sets—and in bright colors and patterns.

I call this my “candy striped” outfit.

I added a label belt and puppy sandals for subtle hints of classy and whimsy!

  1. Not a starbucks fan. Why? I live in a small town and there are none close around. I don’t drink coffee. Never been to a starbucks.

  2. Amazon is definitely number one in my book, but PayPal or Walmart would also be great! I had no idea about drinks that are not on the menu at Starbucks. I really appreciate the info!

  3. I keep hearing about the unicorn beverage from Starbucks. It looks colorful but scares me. LOL. I love a good coffee drink. Maybe my daughter will try it so I can have a sip!

  4. I’m so ready to try this drink now! I definitely want to try it before it’s gone. I didn’t get to try the Unicorn either. I was kind of bummed about that, because it looked so good! Thanks for letting us know about the tie dye frap! I always enjoy reading your blog post, whenever I get free time. You keep it very interesting in how you write them. You literally were meant for this! Keep sharing those adorable outfits, they give me inspiration on my choice of clothing!

    1. Thanks so much for taking the time to share that with me Charlotte! I feel like I’m living in my purpose here, and it means a lot to get confirmation that it’s well received 😉

  5. I love my Starbucks coffee but I can’t do the Frappuccinos. They are just a little too sweet for me. I wish they would have more secret menu coffee drinks though.

  6. Love Starbucks! My favorite are caramel lattes with extra pumps of that fabulous caramel! Thank you for sharing!

  7. Now I want to go to Starbucks to try the Caramel Apple Cider/Spice!

    It’s hard to beat an Amazon gift card. Target and Starbucks are also great gift cards for future giveaways. Or what about one of those Happy gift cards?

  8. I totally want to try the Tie-Dye frappuccino now! The Cookies & Cream frappuccino, Snickerdoodle frappuccino, and the Snickerdoodle mocha all sound INCREDIBLE though! I need to hit Starbucks ASAP. ????

  9. I didn’t even know the Tie-Dye Frappucino was a thing, but I’m pretty sure I need to try it!

  10. I like all gift cards, maybe you could give one to your favorite restaurant chain or online clothing shop!

  11. Hello Ms. Shaunda, so I would love to see PayPal and Walmart gift cards…but don’t get me wrong, this Amazon one u offering is perfect..

  12. You look so happy in your pictures that I always want to say, “I’ll have what she’s having!” (tee hee) As for gift cards, I’d love to see a Neiman Marcus (free shipping on everything there – love them!), Sephora, or the stalwart Amazon.

  13. My favorite gift cards for a giveaway are Walmart, Amazon, Target and Starbucks. I usually get Starbucks hot chocolate as I’m not a big fan of coffee.

  14. I always love a Starbucks gc giveaway! I haven’t tried their new Tie Dye Frap – my current go-to drink is their Mango Dragonfruit Refresher…

  15. Yum – Starbucks!! My favorite for a hot day is Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher, NO water, add 2 pumps raspberry syrup – Yummy!

  16. I always go for their nonfat latte. I crave the caffeine and love a hot latte (I add 2 sugars) so it’s a little sweet, but not overly so. Some of their fraps are DELICIOUS, but they are a rare treat for me because I already eat too much sugar.

  17. Starbucks is one of my fave splurges! I really wish they would bring back their coconut mocha frappuccino. It was so good!

  18. Thanks so much for the tip! I have not tried the Tie-Dye Frappuccino but I love coffee fraps! They have so many drinks but limited space on the menu. Thanks for letting us know!

  19. I did get the unicorn drink when it came out and it was great but not something I’d order each time. It was really sweet. My five year old wanted the the dye drink this year but I had to put my foot down. That’s just too much sugar for a kid!!! 🙂

  20. I order the berry hibiscus made with light lemonade in the summer, and hot chocolate with rasberry and creme brulee syrup in the winter (tastes like a jelly ring)
