The Starbucks Adventures


So one of my best friends, Rianna, and I decided it would be fun to go to Starbucks every Wednesday for the first semester of our last year of high school (now that we've finished the semester, we still go, but we get our favorites!) and test out the "secret menu" frappe's. We have reviewed them and rated them on a 1-10 scale, 1 being the worst, 10 being the best. Have one we didn't try? Email me the recipe at Hap213@embarqmail.com.
