The Fall Starbucks Secret Menu Drink Coffee Haters Will Approve Of

If you can't take a cup of traditional coffee even after you add in a dose of creamer and four packets of sugar, Starbucks' drink menu still has something delicious waiting for you. While the company is known as the globe's biggest coffee-focused restaurant chain (per Insider), it has its fair share of non-coffee-boosted drinks. Aside from frappuccinos and nitro cold brews, Starbucks is known for whirling up light and fruity refreshers made for summer and decadent hot chocolates that are perfect for the colder months. And just like its coffees, Starbucks non-coffee items also have a secret menu that even those who can't stand coffee may regret missing out on.

Now, after much speculation and a possible leak, Starbucks' official fall drink lineup has debuted and a new secret item has appeared with it. But this secret menu treat was seemingly created to make sure that those who dislike coffee won't miss out on pumpkin season. According to Glamour, while Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Pumpkin Cream Cold Brews are on the official menu, coffee lovers and coffee haters alike may be rushing to try a cup of the Pumpkin Hot Chocolate.

Here's what you need to know about Starbucks' Pumpkin Hot Chocolate

Glamour noted that Starbucks' Pumpkin Hot Chocolate tastes "like fall in a cup." And there seems to be different ways to order the autumn-inspired drink. Starbucks itself released its insider tip, stating that the secret combination to getting a Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate is to order the usual hot chocolate but then request the addition of two pumpkin spice sauce pumps. 

However, Totally the Bomb has a more pumpkin-spice-flavor-centric way to approach grabbing the drink from Starbucks. They recommend asking for three pumps of mocha in lieu of the order's usual four (per Starbucks) and then ordering the company's suggested two pumpkin spice sauce pumps before asking the barista to throw on a pumpkin spice topping. No matter what way you choose to order it, the Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate may just have you looking at secret menu items for Starbucks' refreshers, the brand's other selection of coffee free drinks.
