Doesn't a Starbucks Caramel Popcorn Frappuccino sound amazing? The delicious drink is more like a Cracker Jacks milk shake ready to be enjoyed by whoever purchases it. The only problem is that you can only get your hands on the coveted frappuccino if you live in the UK. If you don't live in the UK, it's OK, because menu hackers have figured out how to order the Caramel Popcorn Frappuccino using the secret menu.
Here's how you do it: You ask your barista for a Toffee Nut Frappuccino. Then, you ask them to add a caramel drizzle inside the cup and on top of the whipped cream.
But wait, there's more! To give your frap that savory popcorny taste, ask your barista to top it off with a sprinkle of sea salt, and voilà! You have yourself a perfect Caramel Popcorn Frappuccino knock off.
A Starbucks spokesperson tells Elite Daily,
If customers would like to order a beverage that is not listed on our menu, we recommend they know the recipe so that their barista can handcraft the beverage perfectly for them. This high level of personalization available allows customers to enjoy their very own unique Starbucks experience, and to tailor their drink to match their own personal taste preferences.
Geez, I can almost taste it. I have to give this hack a try!
If you consider yourself more of a Starbucks purest and love a good macchiato, you're in luck, because Starbucks is running a buy one get one free promotion exclusively for macchiatos. If you visit Starbucks between Aug. 3 and Aug. 5 between the hours of 2 p.m. and 5 p.m., you can get a free macchiato with the purchase of a regular macchiato, so make sure you bring a friend because you won't be able to finish two macchiatos alone.
And if you want to make your Iced Caramel Macchiato into a Caramel Popcorn Frap dupe, then maybe try asking your barista to add a sprinkle of salt on top. Or you can just drink it as is and avoid a salty disaster.
You can also try eating a packet of Cracker Jacks along with your Iced Caramel Macchiato. That might give you the Popcorn Frappuccino taste you're after.
