    Is bloody vile. It tastes like something a 4 year old would make you out of their old bath water.

    Save the $6.00 let me take this one for the team and advise against this concoction. I strongly suspect that if I leave this on the counter overnight that it will manifest into a Stephen King short story character. Its like a cup full of melted Now and Laters diluted with Almond milk or something at room temperature.

    And the sprinkles are spicey. That was another unexpected flavor direction.....Did not like it.

    Black, fill to the rim

    Not hard to mess that up, but flavors?
    Not for me, too complicated
    Even those tiny little things filled with liquid that can be found at gas stations are too much work
    Give me my coffee and I'm good to go

    I could step into a Starbucks and not have a single idea what to do

    LOL

    Have not been back to a Starbucks since their anti trump tirade. Will not be going back...I liked Starbucks...but grew too tired of being served politics when I am just looking for a good cup of coffee.

    Starbucks markets these little 7 oz. cans of espresso and cream. They're expensive, but delicious. I'm on the boycott Starbucks bandwagon, now though. The CEO, at least, is a leftist idiot. I won't give them my hard earned currency

    I marvel at how two baristas on the same coffee machine can get hugely different results. Now I am fussy about where I buy my coffee, what coffee is used and who makes it!!!!

    Starbucks ain't much of a thing here, the local coffee shop is normally better and cheaper. They don't compete very well IMO.

    I was in the service in the 60's and our mess hall was always open as we ran 24/7. Nothing beats the taste of black coffee that has been sitting in a 20 gallon urn for 8-12 hours. After that experience one can drink anything. But I was changing planes back in 03 in Dallas and walked up to a S-bucks and ordered a black coffee. The smowflake looked at me like some alien and I had to repeat myself, yes a black coffee. It was the worst coffee I have ever drank, worse than the 12 hr mess hall stuff.

    Pretty much the same all over Washington. We got a couples of "coffees" at a tiny stand outside a gas station in nowwheresville WA and the tattooed and pierced bleached blond barista queried "straws and beans" I said sure. She put little straws in our coffee and two chocolate covered coffee beans on top of the lid.

    I don't patronize Starbucks unless they are the only option (sometimes at a hotel lobby). Americano black to which I add a packet of Stevia.

    Hubby likes his espresso. We have a little one cup machine at home for that. Too much caffeine for me.

    I got to wonder if that "manly" drink is only available on the left coast??? I can't see it even being a consideration at a Midwestern hipster bucks.

    AIEEEEEE! I'm melting, I'm melting!

    Starbucks barista has meltdown over unicorn frappuccino

    A Starbucks barista has taken to social media hoping to make orders for the coffee chain's much buzzed about unicorn frappuccino disappear.

    Starbucks' entry into the unicorn food craze was released Wednesday and its popularity was too much for Colorado barista Braden Burson. He posted a video on Twitter complaining that the drink was difficult to make and he's "never been so stressed out" in his life.

    The Unicorn Frappuccino is a sweet and sour pink and blue cream swirl topped with what Starbucks calls "fairy powder." Burson says in the video that a day of making the treat left him with sticky hands and residue from the drink stuck to his clothes and in his hair.

    Burson tells The Associated Press that he didn't think his rant would get this much publicity and he didn't intend to "downgrade" the drink.

    "It's a great drink. But it is difficult to make when there are like 20 fraps all at once both front and drive thru," he wrote in a Facebook message.

    Starbucks said in a statement Thursday that the popular reception of the drink has "exceeded everyone's expectations." It added that it is reaching out to Burson "to talk about his experience and how to make it better."

    Never sat foot in a Starbucks - probably never will. Rather make my own coffee at home but if I do get some when I'm out and about it's usually at WaWa. That being said let's see what a famous chef has to say about the new stuff..............

    'It the four things I hate all in one sentence': Anthony Bourdain doesn't hold back on his opinion of Starbucks new Unicorn Frappuccino
    • The chef did not hold back when asked for his opinion on the Unicorn
    • The drink has been generating a host of reactions both from customers and the Starbucks staff who have to make the unique beverage
    • Baristas at the chain have been taking to social media to complain about the new limited-edition drink
    • With its pink and blue swirl, it is particularly complicated to make and has been inspiring long lines and hectic shifts for employees

    Or give them to homeless folks. Bring them inside the Starbucks and let them enjoy some quality time there for a little while.

    I never go to those places but once a year say, and then I order a drink that is like a milkshake with a chocolate bar in it. Why would I pay $5 for something I can make at home for 25 cents?

    One coffee a day, 5 days a week for a year = $1300
    Gardener to mow my lawn for a year $750 if I didn't do it myself
    Mechanics to maintain my vehicles per year $750 probably
    Takeaway food per year if I was so inclined $500 perhaps

    That's $3300 I save every year on these expenses alone. It's amazing what a personal spreadsheet reveals to you.

    Okay, let me amend that idea. The drink is mostly sugar and flavors, so give them to the homeless so they can enjoy the comfort of the Starbucks store, and also give them rum so they can transform these into girly drinks. What's better than a Starbucks full of homeless folks? A Starbucks full of drinking homeless folks.
