The Cookies & Cream Frappuccino has been known to get listed from time to time on the Starbucks menu. Although it’s not available on the menu, you can easily order it on your own. This Frappuccino is a perfect blend of chocolate chip and white mocha sauce, making it a true Starbucks milkshake.
Pro tip: Order a Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino blended with white mocha sauce instead of the regular mocha sauce. Ask the barista to top it up with your choice of chocolate or regular whipped cream.

Thin Mint Frappuccino
