East Texas Student Orders Most Expensive Starbucks Drink – Ever!
Logan Warren is a 22-year old student from Nacogdoches who can't afford to drink at Starbucks on a consistent basis. Luckily for Logan, he received a coupon for a free drink for his birthday that he got for signing up for their rewards program. With the coupon that entitled him to a free drink, any size, with any additional add-ons, he decided to take it on as a personal challenge. What's the biggest, most expensive Starbucks drink money can buy?
Logan spend about a half-hour talking out his order with the barista and they came up with a plan, and so Logan's order began. The size he used was Trenta, the Starbucks 31-ounce cup introduced by the company last May. The rest of the order was as follows:
- Java Chip Frappucino at $4.75
- 16 shots of espresso at $12
- a shot of say milk at .60
- a hint of caramel at .50
- a scoop of banana puree at $1
- a scoop of strawberry puree at .60
- vanilla beans .50
- some mocha powder at .75
- protein powder at .50
- caramel and mocha drizzle at .60
Total price for all this iced coffee goodness - $23.60, making it the most expensive Starbucks drink you can buy! Tip for the barista not included!
So, how about the taste? Warren posted on his blog:
The flavor? Tolerable, but not good. Imagine a coffee-based health food smoothie that will put you in the hospital if you drink it all. That’s how it tastes…like Jillian Michaels with a touch of Chuck Norris
I only thought the lady in front of me at Starbucks this morning had a difficult order!
