Today's Blech-fast

Our Sunday Times a few weeks ago was wrapped in a branded bag for Starbucks. It announced the arrival of two new drinks - some awful sounding Blackberry Green Tea Frappucino and a Green Tea Latte. Included with the paper was a coupon for a Green Tea Latte and I used it today en route to work from a doctor's appointment I was totally late for because I got off at the wrong stop.

Don't ever order this! It tastes like crap. Actually it tastes like honeydew melons, which is even weirder. The drink is an unnaturally mint green color and put me in an even worse mood than getting off at the wrong subway stop did.

Also, don't go to the Starbucks on Broadway and 17th Street. I waited like 10 minutes for my drink. Unbelieveable. What are all those barristas doing behind the counter? Oh wait, they were arguing with each other about whether the drink was supposed to have soy instead of skim milk.

A-ha! I just did some research and they add a shot of melon syrup to this drink. WTF?

Without any warning? But that does not even make any sense. What if you were allergic? It's not like you would ever think to ask 'is there any melon syrup in this drink?' when ordering a green tea latte. It's not like asking if there is any ham in the split pea soup if you are a vegetarian. Not like that at all. WTF is right!
