The Most Expensive Starbucks Drink in the World, Ever–$23.60
It’s not every day that you receive a coupon for one of the priciest beverage chains in the world! Armed with my Starbucks Rewards card, I decided to take the opportunity to find out just how much money I could pour into a Trenta—Starbucks’ whopping 31 ounce cup! After about a half-hour with a laughing barista, we created the most expensive drink possible: one Java Chip Frappuccino in a Trenta cup, 16 shots of espresso, a shot of soy milk, caramel flavoring, banana puree, strawberry puree, vanilla beans, Matcha powder, protein powder, and a drizzle of caramel and mocha.
Price: $23.60.

The resulting beverage contains 1400mg of caffeine. According to Erowid, a widely respected drug catalog, a heavy caffeine dose is 400+mg. This drink has 3 times that. If I drank this all at once, it would put me in the hospital. Two of these would kill me.
The flavor? Tolerable, but not good. Imagine a coffee-based health food smoothie that will put you in the hospital if you drink it all. That’s how it tastes…like Jillian Michaels with a touch of Chuck Norris.

That Starbucks employee's time would have been better spent watching me kick this dude to death.

There's a Starbucks, across the street from a Starbucks! What the fuck?

Meh, I like Starbucks' White Mocha. It's pretty damn good. Just overpriced as all hell.
Scooters is better. Still over priced, but not as bad.
I will never use the 'B' word, btw. You pour my coffee, bitch. You're one step behind Flo from the show Alice. At least Flo fetched food and gave you a little lip. I'm not tipping your ass either. You already charged me 6 bucks for this coffee so fuck you.
