Ordering Caramel Drinks at Starbucks

  • Changing Ingredients: Swapping out ingredients on any of the drinks is free, however, if you want to add extra caramel, this will incur an extra charge.
  • Caffeine-Free Caramel Drinks: If you are avoiding caffeine or coffee, try ordering a creme base frappuccino. Some of these will still have a little bit of caffeine so make sure to check before deciding on a drink.
  • Ordering More Caramel: To order extra caramel ingredients on the Starbucks app, go to the flavors section. This will give you the option to add caramel sauce or syrup.
  • Cost to Add More Caramel: The prices to add extra caramel to your drink will depend on location. Usually, it costs less than 65 cents.
  • Less Coffee Flavor: If the taste of coffee isn’t for you, try ordering blonde espresso for espresso-based drinks.
  • Coming Up With Your Own Drinks: Caramel and coffee go together extremely well, so it’s hard to mess up a customization. Even fruit add-ins taste really good with caramel.
  • Caramel Syrup vs Caramel Sauce: Caramel syrup is a base for drinks and is thinner in consistency. Caramel sauce is drizzle that goes on the sides of the cups and on top.
  • Seasonal Caramel: The caramel brulee sauce is seasonal. So if you love this kind of flavor, make sure to order it as much as you can during the holidays.

Caramel Add-Ins: Syrup, Sauce, & Toppings

If you love caramel-flavored drinks, you’re in luck because there are loads of ways you can customize Starbucks drinks. Not super creative? That’s okay; there are some secret menu drinks and TikTok drinks later in this post.

Caramel Sauce/Drizzle

You’ve probably heard of both caramel sauce and caramel drizzle, and that’s because they are the same thing. When ordering your Starbucks drink, you can choose to add caramel sauce on top and coat the insides of the cup.

Dark Caramel Sauce

If you have tasted the Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino, then you’ve tried the dark caramel sauce. The difference between dark caramel sauce and regular caramel sauce is the level of sweetness.

Condensed milk is combined with dark caramel sauce to make the dark caramel sauce.

Caramel Syrup

Vegans love caramel syrup since it is dairy-free. If you don’t want something that’s too thick, caramel syrup could be your best bet.

Caramel Salted Cream Cold Foam

Now, we all know that caramel and salt go amazing together. That sweet and salty combination is almost unbeatable, especially in dessert-type recipes.

The caramel salted cream cold foam takes all that goodness to a new level by adding vanilla sweet cream cold foam.

Caramel Sugar Topping

Caramel sugar topping is another ingredient for the Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino. As you’d expect, it’s a crunchy and sweet topping.

Best Starbucks Caramel Drinks

There are currently 12 drinks on the Starbucks menu featuring caramel. Here is a list of all the regular menu items and some popular caramel secret menu and TikTok drinks.

The best caramel Starbucks drink for you will depend on your personal preferences. Please consider the ingredients listed, the number of calories, and whether it’s a hot or cold beverage.

If you want my take on it, they are all good, and you can’t go wrong. If you haven’t had a caramel drink before, start with the classic Caramel Frappuccino. I haven’t met a person who doesn’t love it.
