We've all heard about restaurants with "secret" menu items -- things not listed on the menu that you can order by name. For example, In-n-Out Burger offers secret menu items like Animal Style or Protein Style. Jamba Juice offers secret flavors like Strawberry Shortcake, Fruity Pebbles and PB&J.

The coffee giant Starbucks is no different. The company has confirmed none of these items. Nevertheless, here they are:

  • Red Eye: shot of espresso added to a regular coffee
  • Black Eye: two shots of espresso added to a regular coffee
  • French pressed coffee: any ground coffee served in a French press
  • Chocolate Cream Frappuccino: need we say more?

Try ordering one of these and let us know what happens!
