If you’re craving a heaping bowl of sugary cereal, but you’re on the go, it’s time for a quick stop at Starbucks. There’s a way to order a delicious frappuccino that tastes like Cap’n Crunch from the coffeehouse chain — and not just regular old plain Cap’n Crunch, but sweet, fruity Crunch Berries.
Don’t pull up to the speaker at the drive-through and ask for a Crunch Berry frapp, though, because chances are good the barista will balk at your order.
Instead, you’ll have to use the ordering directions from Starbucks Secret Menu. The by fans, for fans site has dozens of delicious “recipes” you can use to order a tasty treat that is not on the Starbucks menu, like a Cadbury creme frapp and a Hogwarts-inspired hot butterbeer latte.
So, how do you get a frappuccino inspired by Cap’n Crunch’s Crunch Berries?
You’ll need to read the exact ordering instructions to the barista to get your Cap’n Crunch frappuccino, but the gist of it is that you order a strawberries and creme frappuccino and add caramel, hazelnut and toffee syrups, plus java chips, if you want a little crunch in your frapp.
But does it actually taste like Crunch Berries? According to fans on social media, that would be a solid yes. (Bonus: it won’t shred the roof of your mouth!)
