Geekologie I Watch Stuff The Superficial

New Record For Most Expensive Starbucks Drink

Seen here putting Colonel Sanders to shame in the dapper department, Geekologie Reader and possible future caffeine overdoser Logan got a gift card from Starbucks and decided to do what any red-blooded American would: milk it for all it's worth. But not regular milk -- soy milk. Starbucks coffee additive options joke! Per Logan 'perma-twitch' Warren himself:

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 drink apparently has over 1,400mg of caffeine -- around 7-14 regular cups of coffee worth. That...is a lot. Still not enough to get me out of bed in the morning, but nothing is. I'm depressed, guys.

    how is $23.60 "the new world record"when in a link under the article, the world holder is at $47.30? New? possibly but hardly world record material when stacked to the $47 cup made. Must be a slow news day to cover a mild challenger to this contest.

    Wut? Pretty sure some other guy paid over $40 for a different drink, although that wasn't in a standard Starbuck's size.

  • If I drank something like that, I just might be able to see the future!

  •  I just beat your price with a $28.60 starbucks drink

    Only 1,400mg of caffeine? I end up spending Thursday nights on 8-12 cans of Monster at 160mg a can. And then carry on the caffeine intake for my 5 hour Art lesson on another 2 or 3 cans. Am I an addict? Mabey, mabey not. But I do love the taste of Monster Khaos...

    slow news day huh

  • Im sure it tasted like crap

    Why stop there? Why not blend up a blueberry scone and cheese platter in the drink? That would bring the price up to over $30

    Just to put that amount of caffeine in context - the official 'overdose' amount of caffeine (the amount that kills 50% of humans who take it) is 3000 mg. Anything over 1000 mg is enough to give you a heart attack.

  • 1,400mg of caffeine  -- holy crap!

  • I drink tea.

  • omg starbucks :6 gasp
    Y U NO DRINK REAL COFFEE (4 instance illy, to name one)
    then complain you're ill and obese

  • that brown puddle-in-a-plastic-bucket remimds me of Robocop's  squished brown food...

    and you paid 24 dollars for 1 single (american) coffee??????? 1 coffee should cost ~1 dollar dude...

  • I believe someone missed the point entirely...

  • Ben Mckinley

    That sounds like the single most amazing beverage ever created! I need to have one!

  • Just to clarify this... You paid $24 for a coffee? For a normal, black, medium sized cup o' joe in Norway, we've got to put out around $6.50. If you're planning to eat a small sandwhich too - nothing fancy, off course, - you'll have to put out with another $10. So, for one medium cup of coffee and a not-so-fresh-nor-not-so-tasty sandwhich you'll have to pay $16.50. This is one of the world's richest countries. And you're complaining about what? If we wanted that... Thing. We'd probably have to pay around $40. Dafuq?

    the only people 'complaining' are the ones that think making such a drink was stupid. the person in the article isn't complaining at all.
