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.
How do you order what’s *not* on the menu?
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!
Read the full Refinery29 article HERE.
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!

Thanks for sharing, Amy!
Love your blog ????
That makes my day 😉
Your so cheery and happy. That beverage looks good what ya drinking (:
Hey, Tara! It’s Starbucks’ new & yummy Tie-Dye Frappuccino 😉
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.
I actually don’t drink their coffee either. In the Refinery29 article, I share my favorite drink from Starbucks—which is a non-coffee beverage 😉
i love all gift cards and would love to win one thanks
Thanks, Janet, for sharing!
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!
Funny, right?—secret drinks!
I love gift cards from Amazon, PayPal and Target. Upbeat blogs like yours are the best.
Thanks, Christi! I appreciate you being here and sharing 😉
Target, Regal, Amazon
Yeah-Regal is a good one, too!
I’ll take the chai tea please.
Thanks for the contest.
Chai tea is a good one!
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!
Ha Ha! I never got to enjoy the unicorn—But my friend treated me to another Tie-Dye Frap today. I imagine the Unicorn was fruity like this one.
I like their cafe lattes & coolattas. Thanks for the opportunity. ????
You’re welcome and great choices in drinks 😉
Hi, this is new to me and I am very happy to meet you & to learn of your web site!
I do enjoy Starbucks and love Frappucinos!
Same here! This new Tie-Dye Frap is perfect for me since it’s not a coffee base.
Hi, Katheleen! So happy meet you as well, and glad to have you around 😉
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!
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 😉
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.
Yeah, I think there are many people who don’t necessarily enjoy the sweetness. For me, it’s like, “BRING IT!” 😉
Love Starbucks! My favorite are caramel lattes with extra pumps of that fabulous caramel! Thank you for sharing!
Welcome—and oh how I love caramel, too! 😉
I learned of the secret menu about ten years ago and haven’t tried any yet.
Now you have a whole list of fabulous choices 😉
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?
You must try Caramel Apple Spice! I never heard of the Happy gift card—do tell? 😉
Ooo yummy starbucks!
I know, right!
I order Starbucks Decaf coffee when I have the chance- it’s delicious!
I should try their decaf—My body doesn’t like caffeine.
Starbucks would be great! Would love to try this drink.
Yeah, I always like to receive Starbucks gift cards 😉
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. ????
Right, Sarah! My friend just treated me to another Tie-Dye Frap one this morn 😉
I didn’t even know the Tie-Dye Frappucino was a thing, but I’m pretty sure I need to try it!
I had another today 😉 Totally recommend!
Appreciate that, Lisa!
I like all gift cards, maybe you could give one to your favorite restaurant chain or online clothing shop!
Thanks! I like that idea, too! I was thinking about a gift card giveaway with SheIn.com
My favorite store for giveaways would be Target or Walmart. Or Amazon!
Amazon seems to be the fan favorite!
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..
Hi, Lisa! Yes, it seems everyone is into Amazon 😉
Love starbucks great article and thanks for the chance to win!
You’re welcome, Kimberly!
My go to order is Berry Hibiscus lite lemonade, but I’m definitely going to try the Tye Dye drink.
I’m a fan of Berry Hibiscus with the lemonade, too! I think you’d enjoy the Tie-Dye Frap 😉
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.
Love your description of Amazon! LOL! Yeah, I like that Neiman’s and Nordstrom have free shipping on EVERYTHING!!!
My favourite gift cards for a giveaway are Walmart, Amazon or anyone. Thank you
Love your flexibility, Janet 😉
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.
Same here, Susan—that’s how I got stuck on Caramel Apple Spice!
I love caramel apple spice, iced caramel macchiato and iced or hot pumpkin chai!
All yummy 😉
thx for the post
Welcome—Thanks for reading 😉
Best gift cards? Visa or Mastercard, so I can spend them anywhere! (even Starbucks)
Right about that!!!
I love Amazon cards… more versatile than any others.
Most people seem to agree!
So nice 😉 Yes—Good luck to everyone!
I know right!!!
I still have to try the new Tie-Dye Frappuccino!
Yes, and I’m doubling down on my approval of it! I had it again today 😉
I have got to try this
I agree—you do!
I love Starbucks! I wish it was one closer to me but I do get to go once a week.
Lucky girl 😉 That’s more than I go—and there’s one across the street from me!
Nice article! Some of my favorite gift cards, Amazon, Kohl’s and Target.
Thank you and it seems Amazon is the fan favorite 😉
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…
Ooh! I want t try that one! 😉
I wanna win some money to dress cute like you!
You’re a sweetie, Sandra 😉
Best cards for a giveaway would have to be Target and Amazon!
Amazon stays top of the list! I get it, tho 😉
This is so great, definitely have heard of the secret menu
It’s a really cool feature at Starbucks, especially since they have such die hard fans 😉
I am still waiting when they will open the first Starbucks branch in our town.
Oh wow! I hope you get one soon!
Yum for Starbucks. I like a Very Berry Hibiscus, no water, 2 pumps raspberry syrup. Yummy!
I’ve never adde the raspberry syrup—Yum and thanks!
Yum – Starbucks!! My favorite for a hot day is Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher, NO water, add 2 pumps raspberry syrup – Yummy!
Definitely going to try this one! Many thanks 😉
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.
Yeah, I totally understand watching the sugar in take since I like my drinks sweet, too!
I am in love with Starbucks, and I haven’t been in a long time.. Miss their caramel frappe.
Caramel’s my favorite, too!
That looks really good! Im going to have to try one of the secret menu drinks!
Yes, even if it’s just for fun!
I bet my daughter would love to share this drink with me. Looks so pretty!
So pretty and so good 😉
Starbucks is one of my fave splurges! I really wish they would bring back their coconut mocha frappuccino. It was so good!
I bet you can request this drink—hence, “secret menu”! 😉
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!
Yes, and with so many drinks their baristas are super talented!
Everday you bring beauty & happiness to all ????
How kind of you to say! Thanks, Ina 😉
I often order Starbucks drinks that aren’t on the menu. It makes me smile.
Makes me smile, too, Lorna!
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!!! 🙂
Ha Ha!…not to mention too much $ 😉
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)
OOOH! Thanks for sharing about your winter hot chocolate— sounds like a must try!
