If youve spent time in the cute animals section of the internet, youve probably seen pictures of dogs with their heads burrowed deep inside a mysterious mini Starbucks cup.
Those pooches are enjoying a puppuccino, an item on the secret Starbucks menu that pops up all over Instagram.
A puppuccino isnt anything fancy. Theres no coffee or flavoured syrups involved (so you cant get matching pumpkin spice lattes with your pet, unfortunately) and no special dog-friendly recipe.
The drink for dogs is actually just a cup of whipped cream. Easy.
As its so simple, the puppuccino is something you can get from any Starbucks around the world.
So how do you order it? Handily, that bits simple, too. While the puppuccino isnt on the proper, official Starbucks menu, most people working there will know the drill – so if you ask for a puppuccino theyll likely know what youre on about.
If you receive looks of bewilderment, however, dont panic. Instead of using the catchy term you can just ask for a small cup of whipped cream for your dog.
Starbucks will usually hand over a puppuccino for free. Wed recommend repaying them for this kindness by lifting your dog above the counter and allowing the baristas to fuss over them.
Unfortunately, because puppuccinos arent officially on the menu, you cant order them through the app in advance or through any delivery service. Thats fine, though, as you can officially make a Starbucks trip your motivation to take your pup for a walk. Fun.
Once youve got your paws on your puppuccino, you can hand the cup over to your pooch and let them go wild digging their little snouts into the contents.
Make sure you take a picture – its all very cute.
Oh, and if youre worrying about whether all this puppuccino chat is safe, dont panic. You shouldnt be giving your dog their own cup of whipped cream every day, instead ordering puppuccinos as a special treat.
