Starbucks Canada Reveals New Tie-Dye Frappuccino & Baristas Are Begging You Not To Order It
Starbucks has just launched its newest summer drink, the Tie-Dye Frappuccino, and it's every baristas worst nightmare.
According to the Starbucks' website, this monstrosity is described as a "fruity drink vibrant with red, blue and yellow tie-dye swirls, topped with vanilla whipped cream, and dusted with red, blue and yellow powder."
And it'ssupposed to taste like banana candy. So it's kind of like a unicorn threw up...but in the 70s. And for some reason, banana flavoured.
Starbucks baristas ran to Twitter to express their extreme displeasure for the limited time drink. After the great Starbucks Unicorn frappuccino debacle of 2018, who could blame them?
@simplymar99 hi can i have a tall tie dye frapp and a pink cake pop pls ! 😌✌🏻 https://t.co/Q9zShmbIAq— elodeon (@elodeon) 1562688998.0
The drink takes several steps to make and is incredibly time-consuming. Plus the baristas have to hold back eye-rolls and vicarious embarrassment for a grown person ordering this. All of that can be exhausting.
You're an adult. Just don't order it.
Supposedly, there are no artificial colours or flavours, but we have yet to see bubblegum pink in nature.
I have a theory... bare with me. The number of ingredients you order in a 'coffee' should be in direct correlation with the number of times you should be publically flailed; milk and sugar notwithstanding.
If you order the tie dye Frappuccino when it launches, just know every barista working hates you.— sara (@sara) 1562607167.0
The Tie-Dye Frap weighs in at 400 calories for a grande and 58 grams of sugar - just in case you want to give your diabetes a run for its money.
Please don’t order the tie-dye frappuccino it’s gross and I don’t wanna make it.— Kierstyn Bennett (@Kierstyn Bennett) 1562764600.0
I saw a picture of the tie dye Frappuccino in the sirens eye today and all I have to say is fuck every single bit of that drink.— Barista Problems (@Barista Problems) 1559877184.0
And for all you Keto people out there, it also has 60 grams of carbs! No one wins here.
So, if you're planning to hit a Starbucks in the next couple of days, get ready for the possibility of longer wait times, and aggravated employees covered in sparkles and sugar dust.
