i think my barista is cheating me.
they opened up a brand-new starbucks between my work and my house (perfect!) and every day time I’m in there i order the same exact thing. grande nonfat one splenda latte.
(i thought I’d be switching over for the summer to coffee frappuccino lites…but the first one i had this season was way too overblended and I’m completely turned off now. boo)
I’ve been drinking this same drink for years. solid. i know how it’s going to taste. 130 calories of coffee goodness. only recently, they’ve been more than just solid. they’ve been all kinds of awesome.
the 13-year-old girl behind the counter is definitely switching my splenda for sugar and my nonfat milk for homo milk. yes, that IS what they call it in Canada.
and then i went to a different Starbucks yesterday…and let’s just say..the latte? not nearly as awesome.
and then i found out that I’m not the only one!
according to OK! Magazine, a former barista from the West Village Starbucks was doing the exact. same. thing. to Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. apparently “the barista thought the Olsens were too thin, so whenever they ordered their usual drink, he would replace skin milk with full-fat.”
