Starbucks...are you kidding me?


Starbucks...who are you kidding? That's what I would like to know after finding out about Starbucks' newest promotional campaign.  I went into Starbucks the other day and found out that they now have the new however-you-want-it frappuccino
It doesn't stop there, now it's made to order just like any of their other handcrafted drinks.  I simply don't understand who Starbucks is trying to fool.  A big fan of the frappuccino, I've been making it made to order since like 2003 haha.  Regular milk never really sits well with me so what did I do?  Whenever I ordered my frappucino's I just asked them to put in soy milk.  These days my stomach has some what become better and so if I wanted a not so fatty frappuccino I would ask for skim milk and then ask for no whipped cream.  I know there was a "happy hour" associated with this little gimmick but even with that, this "new" frappuccino is a load of crap.  Sorry Starbucks.  If I'm missing something please let me know because I don't see what the "new frappuccino" is.  

In ADDITION to this, what do you guys think of including a slurpy straw with the frappuccino.  The drink often gets topped with whipped cream and caramel, and the common thing is to just eat it off with the straw but imagine how much easier it would be if we had a spoon type straw that would allow us to do that.  I don't know why they won't just come out with something like that, it must be the same reason why Starbucks won't come out with a proper lid that you can close, like the ones Dunkin Donuts has.  Oh well, that is life!

~Until Next Time~
