Logan Warren: East Texas Dude Gets Most Expensive Starbucks Drink Ever
The expensive, undrinkable concoction.
They say everything's bigger in Tex -- NO, we cannot bring ourselves to write that.
But a Nacogdoches dude went big when he got a gift card for a free Starbucks drink. Logan Warren says he spent "about a half-hour with a laughing barista" working up the recipe, and they came up with a $23.60 concoction. Which is probably what a cup of coffee costs in a four-star New York hotel, but it's big bucks in Nacogdoches.
As it turned out, the drink was not only distasteful -- "it tastes...like Jillian Michaels with a touch of Chuck Norris," Warren said -- but it had a dangerously high amount of caffeine in it.
"If I drank this all at once, it would put me in the hospital," he said. "Two of these would kill me."
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.
That's 1,400 milligrams of caffeine, if you're keeping score. No estimate of calories was available.
