I have another confession to make. When it comes to the Starbucks experience, I am a complete idiot. Jennifer loves Fivebucks Starbucks and one of the first things we usually do when visiting a new city is find one. I usually go in, take one look at the confusing menu and try to talk myself out of running out the door.
I still can’t remember the grande, tall, short, skinny, fat drink sizes and I never can find what I want to order on the menu board. It seems that everything I like is a special secret item that you have to ask the barista about. I am not a coffee drinker so I have to find stuff that doesn’t have coffee in it. Unfortunately, they never list any of it in terms the average person can understand. Why can’t a Vanilla Bean Crème Frappuccino Blended Beverage be called a vanilla milkshake?
I guess they like creating a culture for insiders. Kind of like a secret society for coffee snobs. But for me, I would just prefer to order without feeling like an idiot.
