Starbucks’ Secret Menu Funnel Cake Frappuccino Tastes Like the State Fair—Here’s How to Order

Skip your trip to the state fair—head over to Starbucks for this Funnel Cake Frappuccino instead!

What’s the first food item you think of when you hear the words “state fair”? Is it cotton candy? Corn dogs? For us, it’s deep-fried funnel cake dusted with powdered sugar. Sadly, most state fairs aren’t on the menu this summer, but you can still order a Funnel Cake Frappuccino at Starbucks!

Sure, Starbucks has plenty of official drinks to keep us busy. But for those of us in the know, there’s nothing more fun than the secret menu.

What’s in a Funnel Cake Frappuccino?

This secret menu item starts with a simple Caffè Vanilla Frappuccino. Next, ask for one pump of toffee nut syrup, then request an extra caramel drizzle. This beauty should be topped with whipped cream and a hit of cinnamon dolce.

Just take a look at @totallythebombdotcom on Instagram for photographic evidence:

Bring the fairgrounds to your kitchen with homemade versions of classic state fair food, including funnel cakes, of course!

How to Order from the Starbucks Secret Menu

While the ingredients for the Funnel Cake Frappuccino are part of Starbucks’ core menu, not every barista knows how to make one just by name. Starbucks baristas aren’t trained on secret menu drinks, so if you’re seriously wanting this state fair treat, make sure you have the recipe available or order on the Starbucks app.

Most importantly, though, be respectful of your barista’s time. Everyone will appreciate you waiting until off-peak hours to explore Starbucks’ secret menu items!
