You Can Now Order a "Chewbacca Frappuccino" Off of Starbucks' Secret Menu

Feel free to add a Solo (espresso) to that.

Today, after two years of anticipation, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has landed on the big screen. The final installment (for now) of the Skywalker saga—which kickstarted with 1977's Star Wars: A New Hope—the film has proven divisive, to say the least.

Salon described it as a "return to form" and a "fitting end [to the saga]," while The Guardian deemed it "such fun" and awarded four stars.

Others, however, were less generous. Vanity Fair, for instance, called the film a "lifeless bombast" that's "too determinedly on its sweaty course, heedless of actual audience interest in its tunnel-visioned quest to be broadly loved." (Ouch.) All in all, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker currently sits at 58 percent on Rotten Tomatoes—a full 33 points lower than the prior entry in the series, 2017's Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

For longtime fans of the Force, it's all just kind of a lot.

Well, if you're looking for something to distract you from the discourse, we have just the thing: a Chewbacca Frappuccino. Courtesy of the folks at—the very same geniuses who dreamt up the Baby Yoda Frappuccino—it's the type of chocolatey indulgence that can easily make you forget about an arcane trade war (or a parsec's worth of fanbase friction).

Now, the Chewbacca Frappuccino isn't a formal Starbucks menu item. It lives on something called the "Secret Menu," a list of 200 or so creative concoctions that run the gamut from Cindarella Latte to the Purple Rain Refresher to the Ariana Grande Frappuccino. (The famous Orange Mocha Frappuccino, from 2001's Zoolander, is a Secret Menu item.)

So if you say, "Can I have a Chewbacca Frappuccino, please?" your barista might not know exactly what you're talking about—or how to make it. In that case, you'll have to provide the recipe:

  1. Order a Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino (from the regular menu).
  2. Add caramel drizzle to the inside of the cup.
  3. Get whipped cream on top.
  4. Order extra cookie crumbles (on top of the whipped cream).

Or, you could always try to order it in the Wookie common tongue, Shyriiwook: Rnngnrgnrghrghn!
