What's the most expensive drink in Starbucks then?

18 February 2012

imgp35541 Ever wondered what the most expensive beverage in Starbucks is? No, neither have we. But whirly-minded American Logan A. Warren isn’t like us and he recently figured out what was the most he could spend on a single drink in the caffeine-pimping chain, in the end spending $23.60 (about £15).

It contained the following…

* a trente (31 ounce) Java Chip Frappuccino
* 16 shots of espresso
* a shot of soy milk
* caramel flavoring
* banana puree
* strawberry puree
* vanilla beans
* Machta powder
* protein powder
* caramel and mocha drizzle

Geek System reports that it contained around 1400 mg or almost a gram and a half of caffeine, the equivalent of drinking 14 16oz cups of McDonalds coffees at once or shotgunning 28 Mountain Dews or chugging 7 Five Hour Energies (whatever the frick one of those is). In short, loopy juice.

But it was delicious, right? Actually, no. Warren said it tasted: “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.” Whoever the frick they are.

Geek System applauded Logan A. Warren for his “contribution to absurd science”. However, we here at Bitterwallet think he’s a showy dick.

    You're just jealous that you didn't think of it first, I know I am. I'm off to the £1-or-less shop to perform an equally exciting price challenge.

    But this is endless, you could just keep adding things forever if you wanted. And besides, don't you get free extras with a Starbucks card...
  • Bloke
    All of that sweet crap added and still nothing can mask the awful, awful taste of Starbucks coffee.

    @ richard - You can't keep adding things forever because you will be limited by the largest size of cup available
  • Nagol
    The most expensive thing you can legitimately order must consist of the largest available cup filled entirely with the one thing that has the highest price per volume. I suppose you could have a cup filled with one of the powders and then add something liquid to that.. Or you could ask the person serving you to piss in a cup and offer them £1000 to drink it.

    @Bloke - Couldn't agree more. How do they manage to make it so awful?

    "Trente" is italian for 30. So how can a "trente" contain 31 fl oz? That's trente uno

    1400mg?? Interesting; very close to the lethal dosage for caffeine. Add a bar of high cocoa content chocolate and you have a very cheap way to murder someone.

    What a fucking bell-end. I hope your brain ceased to function after that amount of caffeine.
