Starbucks has released some spooky drinks over the years, including the twisted Zombie Frappuccino and a "slime"-covered Phantom Frappuccino. To get yet another one of the popular coffee chain's creepy concoctions, you'll need to order off the secret menu. As Simplemost reports, the Ghostbusters Frappuccino is the latest unofficial menu item available to Starbucks customers in the know.

Starbucks's "secret" menu has been an open secret for years now. As long as you know what to order, it's easy to get custom drinks made using ingredients available at most Starbucks locations. The Ghostbusters Frappuccino takes the sweet flavors of berry and vanilla and blends them into a beverage reminiscent of the hit supernatural comedy.

To order yours, ask your barista for a vanilla bean Frappuccino as the base. Next, see if they can add raspberry syrup and strawberry purée to recreate the look of the iconic Ghostbusters logo. The addition of white whipped cream and black mocha cookie crumbles on top completes the movie's color scheme.

Unless your barista is already familiar with the secret menu item, getting this drinks requires more work than your typical Starbucks order. But if you're looking for a way to celebrate the season when you're tired of pumpkin spice lattes, the Ghostbuster Frappuccino is a deliciously appropriate option. Here are even more off-menu items to order from your favorite fast food restaurants.

Now that Prime Day is over, and with Black Friday and Cyber Monday still a few weeks away, online deals may seem harder to come by. And while it can be a hassle to scour the internet for promo codes, buy-one-get-one deals, and flash sales, Amazon actually has an extensive coupon page you might not know about that features deals to look through every day.

As pointed out by People, the coupon page breaks deals down by categories, like electronics, home & kitchen, and groceries (the coupons even work with SNAP benefits). Since most of the deals revolve around the essentials, it's easy to stock up on items like Cottonelle toilet paper, Tide Pods, Cascade dishwasher detergent, and a 50 pack of surgical masks whenever you're running low.

But the low prices don't just stop at necessities. If you’re looking for the best deal on headphones, all you have to do is go to the electronics coupon page and it will bring up a deal on these COWIN E7 PRO noise-canceling headphones, which are now $80, thanks to a $10 coupon you could have missed.

Alternatively, if you are looking for deals on specific brands, you can search for their coupons from the page. So if you've had your eye on the Homall S-Racer gaming chair, you’ll find there's currently a coupon that saves you 5 percent, thanks to a simple search.

To discover all the deals you have been missing out on, head over to the Amazon Coupons page.

The famous 11 herbs and spices recipe for Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) remains a closely guarded secret. But that doesn’t mean you can’t take home a firelog that will crackle with the aroma of a fresh bucket of fried chicken this holiday season.

All the smell, none of the calories.Walmart

The KFC 11 Herbs and Spices Firelog ($16) has been a popular novelty purchase for the past two years, and this year, it’s available exclusively at Walmart. Made in partnership with Enviro-Log, the flammable product releases a scent reminiscent of KFC’s distinctive seasoning combination, which the company promises will last around two and a half hours while burning.

KFC originally sold the log directly through their website in 2018 and 2019, but now it's available at Walmart ($16), either on the company’s website or in select stores while supplies last (if it's sold out, Amazon or eBay may be your only other options). Considering KFC is owned by Yum! Brands, which also operates Taco Bell and Pizza Hut, perhaps a Crunch Wrap firelog is in our future.
