Anybody else have a complicated order like Edward?

Anybody else have a complicated order like Edward?

Is your Starbucks order driving the baristas mad? If so, you are not alone. And if you’re order is complicated enough, it might go viral…

Take for instance this recent story involving a Starbucks barista named Josie, who took to Twitter over the weekend, venting about the complicated Venti Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino that a customer named Edward had ordered.

“On [today’s] episode of why I wanna quit my job,” the barista wrote in a viral tweet Saturday.

Edward’s Starbucks drink order for the 24-ounce Venti Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino that was to be double blended and includes five bananas, extra caramel drizzle, extra whipped cream, extra ice, extra cinnamon, seven pumps of caramel sauce, extra caramel crunch, one pump of honey blend, heavy cream, extra salted brown butter topping, five pumps of Frappuccino Roast, and seven servings of Frappuccino chips. 



In the now-deleted post, the barista shared the drink receipt which was nearly as long as the Venti-sized cup that contained it. As you can imagine, the image sparked a fire on Twitter, getting over 52,000 retweets and 336,000 likes. In the replies, other baristas began sharing photos of their own nightmare orders on the platform.

Starbucks has since responded, telling Fox News in a statement: "Customizing beverages at Starbucks and our baristas' expertise in helping customers find and craft the right beverage has and always will be the heart of the Starbucks Experience."

"There are many ways for customers to modify their favorite beverage at Starbucks and most customizations are reasonable requests from customers," the statement added.

The response shouldn’t come as a surprise. Anyone who is a fan of Starbucks is familiar with the chain’s “secret menu”—an index of off-menu drinks created by customers and later released online. 

From last we checked, Josie is taking his newfound Twitter fame in stride but the barista just hopes he doesn’t get fired for revealing the secret about Starbucks’ overly demanding clientele.
