It goes from May 1
Starbucks Secret Menu Item: Bootleg Brulée
This creation involves adding "two shots to any white mocha, and add toffee nut [syrup] and caramel drizzle."
Starbucks Secret Menu Item: Cinnamon Roll Frappuccino
This is a White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino blended with java chips and a dash of peppermint syrup.
Starbucks Secret Menu Item: Marble Mocha Macchiato
The Marble Mocha Macchiato is a twist on the signature Caramel Macchiato. White mocha on the bottom with no whip, shot on the top and mocha drizzle.
Starbucks Secret Menu Item: The Dirty Hippy
Prefer your Dirty Chai Tea Latte with soy milk instead of regular milk? According to one barista commenter, that's called a Dirty Hippy.
Starbucks Secret Menu Item: The Grasshopper Frappuccino
The Grasshopper Frappuccino consists of a Mocha Frappuccino blended with java chips and peppermint syrup.
Starbucks Secret Menu Item: Apple Juice Orange Blossom
This combination of Tazo Orange Blossom Tea steeped in steamed apple juice (with no water).
Starbucks Secret Menu Item: Banana Cream Pie Frappuccino
"At our store (licensed), my favorite drink is a Vanilla Bean [Creme Frappuccino] with vanilla [and] hazelnut [syrups], whipped cream, and a whole banana. But I am prepared to pay the $6 for a grande and I don't call it out or refer to it as a Banana Cream Pie, which is what it tastes like and the nickname it has acquired."
Starbucks Secret Menu Item: Snickers Frappuccino
"We do know a lot of these drinks and more," noted Annalise, a commenter and a self-described Starbucks barista. "Try a Snickers Frappuccino: Java Chip Frappuccino with two pumps of toffee nut and a caramel drizzle on top. It tastes just like a Snickers.
Starbucks Secret Menu Item: Thin Mint Frappuccino
Another drink that borrows its name and flavor from the Girl Scout Cookie repertoire is this creation, which, according to commenter Julie Adkins is made by blending the Tazo Green Tea Crème Frappuccino with chocolate syrup and java chips. According to her, it's "heaven in a cup." We imagine adding a pump of peppermint syrup wouldn't hurt the combination either.

Hello there. You can call me Estherina.
Route 66 Road Trip Blog
Hello from Chicago! For as long as I can remember I've been fascinated with the idea of roadtripping from coast to coast (well, nearly) on Route 66. This is partially motivated by my corny desire to re-trace the chase for the American Dream, an ideal so substantial it managed to drive the nation westward, and partially motivated by my obsession with "American Pickers", a History Channel show featuring two dudes scouring the nation for Americana artifacts.
And now, this crazy little dream of mine is finally coming true. 11 days, 8 states, more than 2100 miles, and the promise of a whole lot of adventure! L and I are spending tomorrow exploring the Windy City, but come Saturday, we'll be on the road. I'm going to try my best to get back into my blogging boots by posting regularly along the way, but for real-time updates, make sure to follow me on Instagram!
Wish us luck!
Basics. I'm a 21-year-old Chinese-Indonesian girl currently attending Columbia Law School in New York City. Prior to this, I've lived in Jakarta, Singapore, London, and Berkeley where I attended UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business.
Third-culture kid? Growing up at international schools, I was taught that I was a third-culture kid, a global nomad, a world citizen. There's a technical definitionfor the term, but to summarize, all that mumbo jumbo means I don't quite feel at home anywhere but everywhere. It's this trait that has kept me traveling whenever possible and thirsty for exploration anytime else.
Estherina's World. I started this blog as an online diary of sorts. A way to coherently document my life's passions and adventures- namely my avid globetrotting, borderline shopaholism, and frequent nom nom fests. Since then, it's grown into a living, breathing record of my favorite sights, sounds, tastes, and feels. One that I've become quite fond of adding to and one that I certainly hope you enjoy browsing.
Final note. I've been told that I have a slightly caustic tongue, but I do try my best to behave. In any case, I promise one thing. This blog will always be honest.
"We were a little surprised to hear the average Brit formalises their list as early as 39 years old but it was great to see the emphasis placed on experiences over financial or material aims, especially given the current economy. It was also nice to see the broad mix of travel cited in the nation's wish list, from road trips on Route 66 to whale-watching."
New research from coach tour operator Leger Holidays has found that travel was by far the most popular thing for Brits to include on their bucket list of things to do before they die.
The survey revealed that 39 was the age at which the average Brit will create their list of life goals to achieve and that a typical list contains 20 items to check off during a lifetime.
Three out of every four people had key destinations they wanted to see on their list, which was almost four times as important as achieving financial success (22%) and three times as important as realising career aspirations (28%).
