You can (pumpkin) spice up your life by chatting directly with a PSL Bot on Facebook Messenger.



Despite attempts, the bot stays kinda boring and clean and pretty stupid, but it was still fun to see what it threw out at me throughout the convo:

This is a strawberry Refresher but instead of using water, you're supposed to ask for coconut milk. That's what makes this drink look like Pepto Bismol. It's getting incredibly popular and driving baristas crazy. 

Does it live up to the hype? Opinions are pretty mixed.

According to a person who works there, it's pretty good but simply not worth the trouble.

When this goat escaped she decided to stop by Starbucks for a quick energy boost. The police department who posted these pictures were searching for the owner and had this to say:

Missing a goat?

Imagine our dispatcher's surprise when she received a couple of calls early this morning advising there was a goat roaming around Wolf Den Plaza... more specifically, the goat apparently needed a caffeine fix and had wandered INTO the Wolf Den Starbucks.

The on duty sergeant promptly responded, took the goat into custody, and transported him to the Rohnert Park Animal Shelter. We're sure the Animal Shelter supervisor will be thrilled to find a goat in a dog's crate when she arrives to work!

 

Of course, Facebook commenters made jokes about it:



But eventually she was reunited with her owner.

This new frozen drink is called the 'Wine Fraggino'. It's basically a Frappucino but instead of coffee (or anything else besides the ice...), it uses blueberry wine from Hokkaido.

This is it. We've reached peak "War on Christmas," and it isn't even December.

GOP presidential contender and deflated kickball Donald Trump is suggesting that people boycott Starbucks because of the recent controversy over their new snowflake-less Christmas coffee cups.

You see, this year Starbucks opted for a plain red coffee cup instead of a design that featured snowflakes and Christmas trees.

Some Christians are mad about this, and have started telling baristas that their name is "Merry Christmas" to force the employee to say it out loud.

Sensing some way to inject his personal brand of horrible into the conversation, Trump called for a boycott of the company at a recent rally.

"Did you read about Starbucks? No more Merry Christmas on Starbucks. No more. I wouldn't buy. Hey, look! I'm speaking against myself. I have one of the most successful Starbucks in Tump Tower. Maybe we should boycott Starbucks—I don't know."

Merry Christmas and happy election cycle!

WTF of The Day: Some Christians Are Upset Because Starbucks Christmas Cups Don't Have Snowflakes

Starbucks has just entered the "War on Christmas" with one bold, unthinkable move—having a red Christmas cup?

That's right. Some Christians are upset because the Starbucks Christmas cup for this year is plain red instead of decorated with snowflakes or Christmas trees.

As a form of protest, people have started using the hashtag #MerryChristmasStarbucks to spread the message of outrage.

And some people are saying their name is "Merry Christmas" at Starbucks so the barista has to write it on their red cup.

Starbucks REMOVED CHRISTMAS from their cups because they hate Jesus ... SO I PRANKED THEM ... and they HATE IT!!!! #shareUse #MERRYCHRISTMASSTARBUCKSFollow --> Joshua Feuerstein

Jeffrey Fields, Starbucks vice president of Design & Content, had this to say about the cups:

"In the past, we have told stories with our holiday cups designs. This year we wanted to usher in the holidays with a purity of design that welcomes all of our stories."

"Starbucks has become a place of sanctuary during the holidays," he said. "We're embracing the simplicity and the quietness of it. It's more open way to usher in the holiday."

It definitely sounds like Starbucks is out to destroy Christmas. eye roll
