The Longest Possible Starbucks Drink Name? by fodder4thought

I’m no fan of Starbucks. The last time I got a mocha at Starbucks I thought it tasted like crap, not to mention that it was more expensive than a gallon of gas. Yet, I return there every four months, like an Alzheimer’s patient, thinking “a mocha sounds pretty good.” Then I drink it, realize it tastes like crap, and don’t return for another four months. That’s the pattern.                                                                                                                                                                                                          The last time I was there, the individual in front of me ordered a drink which had a name so long it could not be uttered in one breath. So I went on a mission to create the longest possible name for a drink at Starbucks. What you are about to read is a drink that can actually be ordered… all 37 syllables of it.                                                                                                                                                                                 The order may go something like this…”Umm…. Yeah… I’d like to have a Venti, sugar-free, non-fat, vanilla soy, double shot, decaf, no foam, extra hot, Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha with light whip and extra syrup… Please.”                                                                                                                                                                      If anyone can help make this longer, please chime in. I would love to get to 50 syllables.

So not to upset the coolness that is not liking the bucks(I get that). But at Starbucks you call decaf fist, you cant get sugar free peppermint or sugar free white mocha, there is only regular soy not non fat. but one thing the extra syrup you can tell them how many squirts of the syrup that you want and the have to say it. In essence you could order a “Decaf, Double, Venti, 5 pump White mocha, 3 pump Peppermint, half soy, half non-fat, no foam, one hundred and eighty, light choclate whip, carmel drizzle inside and out, with cinnnamon and chocolate powder on top, white mocha!” and you gotta love that last part you have to say the white mocha in the designated syrup box and at the end.that should put you over the 50 syllables mark and its a realistic drink kinda or one that people no matter how dumb they are, order. Oh and the barista will absolutely hate you and think your nuts so i wouldn’t recommend drinking it just pretend that you did and not taste the anger they probably put in your beverage!!!

It makes no sense but it would be funny. Iced and extra hot please!

You know what I think is sexy?? A man who can order a drink in three words or less.

You know what I think is fun?? Going to Starbucks, ordering a “large double-double”, and counting the number of clarifying questions the barista must ask in order to translate this simple request into their little caffeinated dialect. Average is 7 questions… 😛

Note: “Double-double” may be a Canadian term– basically, two cream and two sugar.

so, actually
a venti size already has a double shot, you can’t have non-fat soy, and you can’t do sugar-free peppermint or white mocha.

and. you should probably try white mocha instead of regular mocha because yes, i agree that mocha tastes like crap. because it’s made out of a powder added to water. gross.

but, my friend has a really long drink order.
It goes something like this…

a grande in a venti cup toffee nut caramel white mocha frappuccino double blended with no whip cream and extra caramel drizzle.
