    im not exactly a daily starbucks go-er... based on general impression from the media and people, thought id try it given that theres one in my uni...
    got a large cappuccino and a small frappuccino (spelling?), based on the taste of the former, and simply the looks of the other, i should have done the opposite regarding the sizes...

    they seem to have a few different kinds of drinks with different variations of said drinks, so enlighten me tsr... what drinks/variations should i try next...
    on top of that, the hells a latte in comparison?

    It's not on the actual menu. The 'secret menu' is basically things you can ask for to be added to your drink to make it better (fan-made, I think).

    You don't go Starbucks for coffee, it's for sitting there conspicuously typing on your Mac so people think you're a sophisticated working professional doing something important

    I always have a Starbucks Signature Hot Chocolate, it is to die for. Especially when paired with a rocky road.

    Inevitable someone posted a populer negative stereotype about starbucks for a few reps when I'm willing to bet you actually go and do the same :holmes:

    not so much as a starbucks building, more of a starbucks stall ( but permanently situated) that has been integrated into the building...

    I know, but from what I could see on google, if you tried to order one of these drinks by name here, you'd be out of luck, as they've apparently never heard of them. The whole 'secret menu' thing seems to be better known in the States.

    I know, the point is you don't need to order them by name. In the description of each drink it even says things like 'ask for a pump of this and a sprinkle of that'.
