Not the greatest company spokesperson...

My conversation today with the guy working behind the counter making my drink at Starbucks:

Me: Hi, how ya doin today?

Starbucks guy: Ok. (begins to prepare my caramel apple cider) You know, we don't get too many orders for these caramel apple ciders anymore.

Me: Oh, really? That's what I always order here, it's my favorite.

Starbucks guy: Well, you know, they changed the recipe a little bit, and I'm not too happy with it.

Me: Oh, really? I still love it!

Starbucks guy: I don't like the cinnamon dulce syrup they use now. And, I don't really like our caramel syrup either. And, I can't stand our whip cream.

Me: Oh, really?

Starbucks guy: Yeah, the whip cream is soooo full of fat, I just couldn't put that into my body. This whole drink is really so unhealthy and fattening, I just couldn't drink it. I hope we quit selling it.

Me: ....Could you make that with extra whip cream, please?

Starbucks guy: (Dumb stare) uh, ok


Geez, I mean seriously, how rude is that! And, I'm sure his boss would not have appreciated hearing him talk about their products that way. I just had to laugh. And, then I enjoyed every last drop of my delicious, fattening, caramel apple cider! So, if you haven't tried one, please order one the next time you are at Starbucks.

If you lose your favorite drink at SB try to find the Caramel Apple Cider by the bottle. I found some next to the Odwalla juices at the Safeway. You could just heat it up, throw on a gallon or two of whipped cream and never have to see that young man again.

I never trust a man who worries about what he eats. But maybe that's just me.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Nice to "meet" you!
