I'm not embarrassed to admit I'm a pumpkin spice fanatic, no matter what the haters say. Before the leaves even start to change, I'm dashing to the grocery store looking for pumpkin purée in the aisles and grabbing all the autumnal spices from the shelves. I'm also a fan of a store-bought fall treat, which is why I flipped out over this Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Creme Frappuccino from Starbucks' unofficial secret menu. Chocolate and pumpkin? Well that's a combo I just can't miss.
According to barista @technopenguin on Instagram, you can order the drink by asking for a Pumpkin Spice Creme Frappuccino with mocha drizzle around the cup, plus some pumpkin sauce on top of the whipped cream. If this reminds you of the super popular (and another also not-so-official menu item) Jack Skellington Frappuccino, you're not far off! There's definitely some similarities between the two, but this chocolate pumpkin spice frappe will probably save your local Starbucks employee a little grief — there are fewer ingredients and special requests. This one's for you pum-kings and pum-queens; will you give the drink a try?
