Item of the Day: Starbucks’ Secret Cap’n Crunch Frappuccino
Take a Strawberries ‘N Creme Frappuccino, add some pumps of toffee nut and hazelnut. Voila! A huge gust of wind tosses your hair back as you envision your 8-year-old self seated in front of One Saturday Morning with a bowl of sugary goodness spilling onto your lap. How can it taste so much like the real thing? How does science work this way? Who in their right mind figured this out? Why am I not getting one right now?
Clearly the invention of some bored barista hooliganism, the secret menu item known as the Cap’n Crunch Frappuccino is probably not understood at every location, but that’s what keeps it cooool, maaaan. If you don’t happen to stumble upon a savvy employee who is up to your tricks, the additional syrups are easy enough to remember and ensure you still get the nostalgic drink you so desire. Add whipped cream to take you even further back to the time in your life when calories didn’t exist.
Oh, what’s that you say? You feel reborn? You’re welcome.
