What Is a Chewbacca Frappuccino?

A Chewbacca Frappuccino is a secret menu item created to resemble everyone’s favorite Wookiee. This special drink is a combination of mocha flavor, cookies and caramel.

To get the Chewbacca Frappuccino, ask your barista for a Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino and then request a few upgrades. First, ask for a caramel drizzle inside the cup, just to give the drink a few Chewie-esque highlights (and extra flavor). Then request that the whole drink be topped with whipped cream and cookie crumbles. The add-ons make this a drink any Wookiee (or human) would love.

Since the Chewie Frap isn’t on the official Starbucks menu, be kind to your barista as you explain—they don’t mind your off-menu orders, but they do require your patience.

What Does the Chewbacca Frappuccino Taste Like?

Of course, the most important part of this whole concoction is the flavor. So what is this Chewie Frapp like? In a word: indulgent (but also delicious). After all, who doesn’t love caramel and chocolate together?

Add a few cookie crumbles and mocha and you’ve got a blockbuster-style sip. This drink can be a bit sweet, but we’re sure you can offset that with plenty of salty popcorn. May the 4th be with you!
