Here’s How To Order The Pink Cotton Candy Frappuccino Off The Starbucks Secret Menu

I finally did it! I found a way to make a Pink Cotton Candy Frappuccino and I’m so uber excited about it — More excited than I probably should be.

Do you know how hard it is not to be cheesy and say, “I am simply tickled PINK!”

I was so totally bummed when Starbucks took the red color out of the Raspberry syrup. I could no longer get my pretty PINK Cotton Candy Frappuccino.

I understand the reasoning behind leaching all the color from the syrup, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it.

I have been wracking my mind, trying to come up with a way to still have that pink color in my Cotton Candy Frappuccino. It’s may TASTE just as good with no color, but it just isn’t the same. I’m totally extra like that.

I finally came up with a recipe that is as yummy as it is PINK!

Now, you CAN’T simply go into a Starbucks, and order a Cotton Candy Frappuccino.

First of all, it is on the Starbucks Secret Menu, so a lot of Baristas will have NO idea what you are talking about.

Second, if the Barista knows the original Cotton Candy Frappuccino recipe, you will get a white Frappuccino. Unexceptable.

It is important to take THIS recipe into the Starbucks with you, so the Barista knows exactly what to make.

Here Is How To Order Your PINK Cotton Candy Frappuccino:

Order a Venti Strawberries and Creme Frappuccino

Have them make it with HALF the strawberry syrup as normal

Get them to add three pumps of Raspberry syrup

Blend the whole thing up in the blender

Top the Frappuccino with a bunch of Whipped Cream

Stick a straw in that beauty, and enjoy

...this isn’t even going to taste like cotton candy. Just strawberry and raspberry. It’s missing the vanilla bean powder which is where it gets the cotton candy taste from. What’s even the point? Why don’t you just say that you don’t care about the taste of the drink and that you only care that your drink is aesthetically pleasing and instagrammable? Also the Starbucks doesn’t have strawberry “syrup.” It’s a purée and there’s not an exact way to measure half the amount, so it likely won’t have a consistent taste. The cotton candy tastes no different, it’s just less pretty. I no longer work for Starbucks, but every barista despises stuff like this and the stupid secret menu.

Oh Amanda, Can you not be so dramatic. Baristas know how to their job. Just ask the barista for a damn strawberries and Creme Frappuccino with light strawberry purée and raspberry syrup that’s it!! None of that other crap your not gonna get behind my counter and blend your own Frappuccino ?. Why do you still make these anyway? You’re creating a terrible generation of customers to deal with and trust me baristas at Starbucks aren’t the only ones going to have to deal with them. Hopefully you’ll learn how to blog about something else besides Starbucks and stop making our job miserable. Thanks
