How Does The Funnel Cake Frappuccino Taste?
The secret menu version of the Funnel Cake Frappuccino has been floating around for years. Starbucks caught wind of this and crafted its version of the drink in the summer of 2021. Their version was a Strawberry Funnel Cake Frappuccino.
Unfortunately, you can’t order the official drink year-round because Starbucks doesn’t carry the strawberry puree or funnel cake flavored syrup. However, you can order the secret menu version year-round because it is made from staple ingredients.
But how does it taste?
Truthfully, the secret menu Funnel Cake Frappuccino was delicious. However, it was missing the distinct flavors of funnel cake. With imagination and an open mind, we could see where the secret menu item got its name, although it wasn’t quite as obvious as some other secret menu items.
Truthfully though, if you are a fan of cinnamon, vanilla, toffee nut, and caramel, you’ll probably love the Funnel Cake Frappuccino regardless.
