Starbucks is known for its creative menu items — both on and off the standard menu. The Unicorn frappucino took over the internet this spring, while the “pink drink” and other colorful variations have become secret menu staples, continuously driving baristas crazy.
A 17-year-old girl named Laylah decided to take on the secret menu madness and trick her social media followers. She posted a photo on Snapchat of a fake secret menu drink that she dubbed “a Frappajappajooza,” according to Buzzfeed.

In an interview with Buzzfeed, Laylah described how she made the special beverage with Gatorade. “I poured it all into a Starbucks cup, and the color looked cute, so I posted it on my Snapchat,” she said.
When friends started bombarding her with messages about the colorful drink, Laylah responded by calling it a “Frappajappajooza” — and people believed her.
Laylah posted screenshots of her Snapchat prank on Twitter and it quickly went viral. Her tweet got 350,000 favorites and 94,000 retweets within two days.
Despite its newfound internet fame, the “Frappajappajooza” is not yet on any Starbucks menus.
