Did you know that some of your favorite restaurants have certain menu items kept in the dark? They can be ordered, but don’t actually appear on the menu. These so-called secret menus aren’t so secret after all.

Drunken Fun Guys from Mellow Mushroom (the closest ones to Tupelo are in the Memphis area) is an appetizer that consists of cut up pizza dough with beer cheese.

Taco Bell has a personalized quesadilla with an extra crispy shell called the double grilled quesadilla.

A Buffalo Chicken Sandwich from Chick-fil-A is just a regular chicken sandwich with the chicken covered in buffalo sauce.

Starbucks baristas are asked about twice a day to make a secret menu item.

“We don’t know the secret menu from memory, but if you show us the ingredients we can make it,” an employee of the Starbucks on West Main said.

Most of the secret menu is made up of regular drinks with some extra pizzazz added, or it’s a simple change in the way a beverage is prepared.

I went to Starbucks and ordered a Sour Gummy Worm Refresher. It’s just a Valencia Orange Refresher with raspberry and peach syrup added. They didn’t carry the Valencia Orange Refresher, but they could still make it.

I also tried a Rolo Frappuccino. It’s a vanilla bean frappuccino with java chips added and caramel drizzled on the inside of the cup. I think I’m in love with it. This is going to be the one thing I get everytime I go to Starbucks from now on.

“Sometimes we don’t have all the ingredients to make them because Starbucks discontinued some of the ingredients,” the barista said. “But we can still make it.”

Some secret menu items are made from the creative minds of customers and workers.
If you’re in an adventurous mood, try something totally new. It’s just a matter of finding what you like. Play around with the menu. The cooks and baristas are there to help you enjoy what you’re eating or drinking. If you don’t like what you got, change it again. At the end of the day, it’s nice to spice things up a bit and have some flavor in life.
