These extremely specific custom Starbucks orders are going viral on Twitter
For the average person, a little adventurous spirit with your Starbucks order means having an extra pump of caramel syrup in an aerated coffee. It could mean adding whipped cream to a great cold brew, or adding a dash of chocolate powder to a cappuccino to liven up the day – or so we thought. Many of us were years old today when we learned that some people’s Starbucks orders are often a CVS receipt list with adjustments that practically make coffee look like a sugary poison. Over the weekend, a Starbucks barista shared one of those really awkward assignments with the world. What began as a venti Caramel Crunch Frappuccino from a customer ended with 5 bananas, 7 additional pumps or dark caramel, 7 “Frapp Chips” and about a dozen other specifications. “On today’s episode, Why I Want to Quit My Job,” ProjectJosiee signed a photo of the custom dessert I refer to as a drink. The order placed to a customer named Edward (sounds wrong) quickly started trending. In today’s episode, why I want to quit my job. pic.twitter.com/vKAtRKNRwe – Josie (@ProjectJosiee) May 2, 2021 “Edwards” assignment suddenly inspired other Starbucks baristas to share their own custom nightmare requests on a Twitter thread that garnered over 185,000 likes and 16,000 retweets. “Let me throw in another one for a little more flavor,” commented a barista, sharing a photo for an order for a venti mango dragon fruit lemonade that included requests for cinnamon dolce syrup, cold foam, peppermint syrup, and coconut flakes . Ouch! “Sundays are the worst,” commented another barista alongside a photo of a ventilated blonde vanilla latte that featured extra white mocha pumps, vanilla bean powder, Irish cream and … upside down. And in what one person correctly called an “abomination” one barista shared what they are saying is a bi-weekly order of venti caramel green tea frappuccino with – please sit down for these – 12 bananas, 12 Affogato shots, 12 pumps of honey, extra cocoa powder, 12 extra frappuccino chips, extra pumpkin sauce, extra raspberry syrup, extra cinnamon and nutmeg powder, extra caramel and mocha drizzle and more pumpkin-flavored toppings among a seemingly endless list of other add-ons . This was just the TL; DR.

It was one thing to put pumpkin spice in a chai latte. It was one thing to order a unicorn frappucino. But adding loads of bananas that you wouldn’t actually eat is nothing. We may not be able to come back to this as a company, but here is the prayers for the brave baristas who continued to have to add more than three shots to each drink or mix peppermint into a lemonade. We greet you. Do you like what you see? How about a little more R29 grade, right here? Order Starbucks Secret Menu drinks nowWhat makes a dip, sauce and spice different?
