Our favorite cereals have made it on top of our donuts, into our milkshakes, and even our ice cream, but what if we could make our favorite coffee drinks taste like beloved cereal flavors too? Although this may seem like a far-fetched cereal lover's dream, you can make it a reality at your local Starbucks.
We know Starbucks for its extensive secret menu, but some secret menu items are more well-known than others. One vastly underrated drink combines the coffee we all love with a cereal many of us grew up eating. Although you won't find this cereal directly making an appearance in this drink, you can imbue your Starbucks drink with the spices that make the popular cereal stand out from the rest. The sheer amount of customizations you can make to your coffee can make ordering at Starbucks feel overwhelming at times, but once you know what to ask for, this cereal-inspired drink will become your next Starbucks go-to.
Cinnamon Toast Crunch hits on our need for a sweet (but not overly sweet) breakfast staple, and now, we can get all those flavors in a cup of coffee. That's right — the Cinnamon Toast Crunch drink is a Starbucks secret menu must-try for cinnamon- and cereal lovers everywhere.
Ordering the Cinnamon Toast Crunch drink is pretty simple. Just order an iced white chocolate mocha. You'll still ask for the typical white chocolate mocha sauce, but instead of the default four pumps, ask for just two pumps of white mocha. Then, to get those cinnamon flavors in your drink, ask for three pumps of cinnamon dolce syrup. Make sure to get whipped cream on top. Since there's nothing like a cinnamon-flavored drink with actual cinnamon, sprinkle in cinnamon and Sugar in the Raw to top your drink. (Although these are the proportions for a venti-sized drink, you can easily adjust them to fit other drink sizes.) Making this drink all comes down to adding a few extra ingredients to your usual iced white chocolate mocha, but with these easy ingredient switch-ups, you'll have a drink that tastes just like a bowl of your favorite cereal.
Believe it or not, the Starbucks secret menu is full of drinks you'll love if you believe no food is ready without a sprinkle of cinnamon. Starbucks has both hot and cold cinnamon drinks, so there's an option to fit any craving or type of weather.
Among Starbucks' secret menu options are cinnamon-based Frappuccinos, hot chocolate drinks, lattes, and smoothies. The Cinnamon Roll Frappuccino is a vanilla bean Frappuccino with white mocha syrup, cinnamon dolce syrup, and a sprinkle of cinnamon dolce powder, perfect for anyone who's craving a cold drink. Latte fans will love the White Chocolate Cinnamon Chai Latte, a chai latte with cinnamon dolce syrup and white mocha syrup topped with whipped cream and a cinnamon dolce drizzle. If you prefer ordering smoothies at Starbucks, you won't be left out — the Cinnamon Dolce Smoothie is a chocolate smoothie with cinnamon dolce syrup instead of the usual mocha and a few scoops of vanilla bean. There's also the decadent Cinnamon Bun Hot Chocolate, a hot chocolate with mocha and white mocha syrups, cinnamon dolce syrup, and vanilla syrup. It's topped with whipped cream and cinnamon dolce. The Starbucks Cinnamon Toast Crunch drink will give you serious childhood nostalgia, but it's not the only delicious cinnamon drink you'll find on Starbucks' secret menu.
