Starbucks’ Secret Menu Buttered Popcorn Frappuccino Is Perfect for Movie Night

This is perfect for watching Netflix! Here's how to order a Buttered Popcorn Frappuccino at Starbucks.

Lately, we can’t stop ordering from the Starbucks secret menu. There are so many bevvies to be had, from the healthy Skinny Pink Drink to a Cookies and Cream Frappuccino that gives DQ Blizzards a run for their money. We’re looking for fall-inspired drinks ahead of PSL season, and if there’s one secret menu Frappuccino left to try right now, it’s this one.

Curl up around the TV—or at the drive-in theater—and indulge in Starbucks’ secret menu Buttered Popcorn Frappuccino.

It’s Salty and Sweet!

If you’d rather sip your movie night snack through a straw, start by ordering a Grande-sized Toffee Nut Frappuccino with your choice of coffee or creme base. Next, ask your barista to replace whole milk with sweet cream and include a salt packet in the pitcher before blending. (The sweet cream will deliver the buttery texture, and the salt is, well, for salt!)

Finally, ask for extra caramel drizzle, top it all off with whipped cream and voila! You’ve got a Frappuccino to rival any gourmet popcorn.

The recipe for this buttery concoction was first posted on TikTok by faithful Starbucks fan @StarbucksIsBae. Their other video tutorials include the Churro Frappuccino, Funnel Cake Frappuccino and our personal favorite, Salted Caramel White Mocha Cold Brew.

Keep Your Barista in Mind

Before you roll up to the drive-thru, make sure you’ve saved or memorized the recipe first. Starbucks baristas aren’t trained on secret menu items—since there are so many of them—and they may look at you sideways if you order the Buttered Popcorn Frappuccino by name. If you’re putting in your order via the mobile app, make sure to double-check your work before placing it.

While this drink seems like an end-of-summer dream, you should know that the ingredients for this sipper are available all year round. You don’t have to wait for summer to dig into your favorite movie night pick-me-up. Is there anything the Starbucks secret menu can’t do?
