Dear Starbucks,

I am almost ashamed to admit how much I enjoy your Gingerbread Latte. However, what I do NOT enjoy is at the very end of it, I always somehow nearly gag myself with the last sip when something solid and chunky hits the back of my throat. Tonight I actually bit down on a piece of it, and I'm just guessing here, but it was semi-crunchy and I think that it may have been an honest-to-God actual piece of ginger, or maybe a clove?

ARE YOU TRYING TO MAKE ME BARF?

There should not be chunks of anything at the bottom of one's coffee, particularly when they have paid over $4 for said coffee! So please, please, please lose the chunks. I would like to just order a latte and not sound like a prima donna when I ask the barista to get me a Grande-Skinny-Gingerbread-Latte-No-Whip with all of the SH!T hand-strained out of it.

Thank you,


-K

Hey! It could have been a furry chunk. Be grateful.

Yes, furry would be much worse!

Ewwwww fur.

For the $$$ you're paying them, they should do it with a smile.

Um, gross.

When I worked at SBC, they had a gingerbread latte. There were specific rules for garnishing the drink. Whip, and then this cute little gingerbread skating on the layer of foam. But people were supposed to take the gingerbread out before putting their lids on, so there were no chunky things in our drinks.
