The Starbucks Pumpkin Cheesecake Frappuccino Is The Ultimate Fall Drink

I don’t feel like I’m getting ahead of myself thinking about fall beverages. For one, Starbucks already brought back the Pumpkin Spice Latte for the season. For another, it’s officially September 1st, which means the time has come. Plus, can anyone blame me when things like the Pumpkin Cheesecake Frappuccino exists to get everyone in the autumn spirit?

  1. It’s like the PSL taken up 10,000 notches. Basic PSLs are a classic Starbucks treat for sure and you can never go wrong ordering one. However, if you want to take your pumpkin loving to the next level, the Pumpkin Cheesecake Frappuccino is where it’s at. Oh, and in case it wasn’t obvious, you won’t find this one on the main menu.
  2. So where did it come from? TikTok user @starbucksisbae came up with it and shared it with Totally The Bomb, who keep the most insane list of secret Starbucks menu items ever, in case you ever need any inspiration. To be honest though, I don’t care who came up with it – I only care about how delicious it is.
  3. If you want to order one, here’s how. The next time you’re at your local Starbucks, ask the barista for a grande Pumpkin Spice Crème Frappuccino. Easy enough, right? But you’ll want to make some modifications. First, ask for one pump of cinnamon dolce syrup and one pump of white mocha. Then, ask nicely for your whipped cream to have a sprinkle of graham cracker crumbs and voila!
  4. It’s kinda like dessert in beverage form. Needless to say, drinking this is a no-go for people who don’t have a sweet tooth. However, if you’re looking for a really dessert-y way to get your caffeine fix, the Starbucks Pumpkin Cheesecake Frappuccino is the one for you. Trust me, you’ll love it and want to come back for another!
