Passion Tea Lemonade: This drink is refreshing, cool, lemony, and still passionate. Its really sour, and fruity and honestly its summer in a cup.

Chai Tea Latte: A Chai Latte is one of Starbucks's most popular drinks. It is a Latte, meaning its made with steamed milk, and it tastes sweet and cinnamony. When it's hot, it's made with spices, including nutmeg and ginger, so its extremely warming. You can also get dirty Chais, which are Chai lattes with a shot in them. You can also get what's called a Dirty Hipster, a drink on the Starbucks secret menu, that's really good.

Vanilla Roobios Tea: This tea is a blend of peach and vanilla. It tastes absolutely amazing and I recommend getting the Vanilla Rooibos Latte for something really good. Its warm and frothy and really good if you like chamomile and other vanilla teas.

Green Tea Frappuccino: You either love this or you hate it. If you like Green Tea, you'll love it. It's green tea mixed with cream and milk all put in a mix of blended ice. Extremely refreshing and good for you, You can get some natural caffeine without the yellow coffee-stained teeth.

Drinks That Have Coffee

Javachip Frap: This is definitely THE frap if any that you should try. About everyone I know who has drank one, likes it. It a cool, creamy, chocolaty frap with little peaces of chocolate blended into it. It's a ton of calories, but if its a special occasion, its totally worth it

White Chocolate Mocha: This drink is super sweet and really good. If you like white chocolate, you will love this. Its a coffee latte that is sweet but with a hint of chocolate. Its also really good if you ask for an extra pump of cinnamon dolce in it or an extra pump of toffee nut.

Caramel Macchiato: This is the favorite drink of about half the people I know. This drink is made with steamed milk, espresso, and caramel. Its delicious, especially warm, and can be the perfect drink on a snowy day. However, it's very refreshing cold too. The Macchiato is a moderate amount of calories because its not a caramel latte, its a vanilla latte with caramel drizzle, a lot healthier, but still tasty.

Strawberries and Creme Frappuccino

Non-Caffeinated Drinks

Strawberries and Creme Frap: This frappuccino is the usual blended ice with a creamy non-caffein base, and a dash of strawberry flavor. Instead of being a heavy mix of fruits like a smoothie, its a creamy just strawberry taste. Its the perfect thing to have in the summer, its a beautiful frosty pink, and I have to say its the perfect strawberry un-smoothie.

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate: This may seem kind of weird because its both salt and sweet, but lately the salted caramel flavor has become popular at a lot of places. Its a hot chocolate, that's sweetened by caramel, but is then given an extra little kick by salt. It's absolutely the most unique and amazing flavor that I've ever tasted. Salted Caramel is seasonal, only available in the fall.

Chocolate Smoothie: The Smoothie uses a banana for a base and has chocolate added. This drink is not only one of the healthiest, most proteinful choices, but it also is delicious. It has really little fat and is refreshing. It's not as much sweet chocolate as it is a chocolate taste added to a sweet banana taste.

Orange Mango Smoothie: This drink has less protein than the chocolate smoothie, but is much less calories. It has a banana base, and a very refreshing and fruity orange/mango flavor added. It's delicious, cool, and especially savory in the summer. It is one of the healthiest drinks on the whole menu.

Red Velvet Whoopie Pie: This is two red velvet pieces of cake, chocolaty in taste. Between the two pieces is a light frothy filling, made with cream cheese. So it is the classic red velvet and cream cheese combination, but in a lower calorie package.

Salted Caramel Square: This is absolutely amazing, if you like the salted caramel drinks, this is just as good if not better. If you want to try salted caramel without getting the five dollar drink, get this bakery item since its cheaper. If you like it, you'll love the drink. This is also seasonal, available in the fall.

Banana Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake: This is a good breakfast item. It is a moist cake dotted with soft chocolate chips. It has a top that is crusted with more chocolate and nuts, and has an overall moist banana bread with a kick flavor.

Cake-pops: These are adorable. They're like little mini cakes on popsicle sticks. They are moister than cakes, and a lot more delicious than any piece of cake I've ever had. They come in flavors of Birthday Cake, Rocky Road, Lemon Cake, and Salted Caramel.
