Starbucks Just Put Harry Potter’s Butterbeer on Their Secret Menu
Yo, guys, PSA. According to another post floating around, the “secret menu” isn’t an actual thing, and asking for something from it will really confuse employees who will have no idea what you’re talking about. If you want to order this, just order something with the ingredients listed in that article! You’ll get what you want to drink, and the people working behind the counter won’t have to scramble to try and figure out what you want them to serve you!
Just as a heads up, as someone who used to work at Starbucks, the secret menu is 110% not a thing and the barista’s will absolutely fucking hate you if you come in asking for something without knowing what’s in it. Also, they won’t make it. I, and many others, straight up say no when people come in and do that. “Can I get a S’more Frappuccino?” “Do you know what’s in it?” “No, but it’s on the Secret Menu and it’s your job to know” “Secret Menu isn’t a real thing, if you don’t know what it has in it, I’m not making it.” “Blah blah just say yes blah blah.” “Nope, not sorry, next please.”
OR, come in with the ingredients! And they’ll be totally down. Instead of “Can I get a S’more Frappuccino?” try, “Can I get a one pump toffee nut, one pump cinnamon dolce, double chocolatey chip frappuccino with whip?” BAM easy, yes you can.
This has been a public service announcement.
Finally someone says it.
I worked for Starbucks for two years and this shit drove me up the wall.
