Puppuccino, a Starbucks Secret Menu doggy treat recipe, was created just for our fuzzy four-legged friends. Basically, the Starbucks pup cup is just an empty espresso cup filled with good old-fashioned dog-friendly whipped cream. However, dogs absolutely LOVE it … and, it’s free! So, if your fur baby isn’t lactose intolerant or sensitive to dairy, the next time you cruise by your local Starbucks, stop in and ask for a Puppuccino and enjoy your happy, happy dog, just a happy, happy, happy dog …
What Is In The Puppuccino On The Starbucks Secret Menu?
The Starbucks Secret Menu Puppuccino ingredients are an empty Starbucks espresso cup and whipped cream (cream, milk, mono and diglycerides, carrageenan). There is no actual coffee or caffeine in a Puppuccino.
Can Dogs Eat Whipped Cream?
Yes, most dogs can eat whipped cream without issue and thoroughly enjoy it. However, as with any sweet treat, moderation is the key.
Whipped cream typically contains cream, milk, sugar, vanilla, mono and diglycerides, and carrageenan. None of these ingredients are toxic for dogs when ingested in reasonable amounts. However, it is important to monitor your pooch for potential adverse reactions that may indicate doggy lactose intolerance or an allergy.
Are Starbucks Puppuccinos Free?
Yes. At most locations, Puppucinos are completely FREE! However, that doesn’t mean you should roll through every day and load up on free doggy treats. It is nice if you also place an order for your dog’s human counterpart … and, don’t forget to tip your barista.
How To Order A Puppuccino
To order a Puppuccino from the Starbucks Secret Menu, simply ask your barista for a “Puppuccino” or a “Pup Cup.” Unfortunately, at this time, Puppuccinos cannot be ordered online via the Starbucks app.
