This Starbucks Drink in a Flower Vase Costs $54

most expensive starbucks drinkThanks to Starbucks’ Gold Card program and the natural human urge to break inane records, a man in Dallas created a specialized $54 cup of coffee that was literally served in a vase.

The drink, labelled the “Sexagintuple Vanilla Bean Mocha Frappuccino,” beat the previous record for Most Expensive drink ordered at the franchise by about six dollars and 70 cents.

With 60 shots, around 2,000 calories, and extras like drizzles and protein powder, the sex-a-whatever Frappe has enough caffeine to hype up a pod of blue whales, and/or Honey Boo Boo’s entire family.

Starbucks Apologizes For Offending Southern Woman With Foamy, Caramel ‘666’

Starbucks 666A Baton Rouge woman who bought coffee at a Starbucks at the Mall of Louisiana received a large amount of both humorous and concerned comments after sharing a picture of her two drinks.

With a matching “666” and pentagram art drawn in caramel, the woman, Megan K. Pinion (so close to the ultra satanic “minion”) wrote that while she was “in no way judging” the beliefs of the barista, she judges his “lack of professionalism and respect for others” and was “appalled” by the imagery.

“I am a teacher in the public school system and if I were to present a child of atheist or pagan believers with a Christian art project I could be sued in a heartbeat,” she stated.  Continue reading “Starbucks Apologizes For Offending Southern Woman With Foamy, Caramel ‘666’”

New Fiat Model Offers Third-Degree Burns With In-Car Espresso Maker

I have Timbaland’s “Kill Yourself” stuck in my head except I’ve replaced the lyrics with “Burn Yourself” after hearing that the new Fiat 500L has an Espresso machine inside of it.

And what’s more Italian than an Espresso? I guess they could add a device to make Pancetta or, when you don’t put on your seatbelt on a recording of a man whistling at you and unbuttoning his pants could play. Other than that, nothing comes to mind.

If you’re wondering how the one-of-a-kind “Coffee Experience” by Lavazza works, it clips onto your back seat cup holder and boils water with grounds like a stove-top device would.  Continue reading “New Fiat Model Offers Third-Degree Burns With In-Car Espresso Maker”

Chewable Coffee ‘Grinds’ Endorsed By Major League Baseball Players

Is sipping coffee such a pain or is there something refreshing about a slivery shot of caffeine to the gums that led to the creation of chewable coffee?

Matt Canepa and Pat Pezet launched Grinds in 2009 and immediately began testing their product on baseball players, handing out samples and gaining insightful feedback.

The nicotene-free pouches currently come in three flavors – Cinnamon Roll, Mocha and Mint Chocolate. The “cans” are relatively cheap at $11.99 for three. They are marketed as both “a healthy alternative to tobacco for professional baseball” and “coffee in your pocket.”  Continue reading “Chewable Coffee ‘Grinds’ Endorsed By Major League Baseball Players”

Spock Enjoying A Latte In ‘Star Trek 2’ Set Pics

Leaked set photos from J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek sequel that is set for 2013 have appeared to possibly spoil plot fragments and more! Not only are there speculations that the movie will be in 3D (note the word “MAX” on the camera)

The villain, played by Benedict Cumberbatch is shown in a fight with Spock (Zachary Quinto) who looks to be Vulcan death-gripping him, and later with Zoe Saldana in her super short Starfleet skirt.

This is significant to nerds because Cumberbatch (every time I hear that name I think of Hubert Cumberdale from Salad Fingers) is human in the movie. The round ears and lack of special makeup seem to indicate this.  Continue reading “Spock Enjoying A Latte In ‘Star Trek 2’ Set Pics”
