The Cold Truth About Starbucks
Iced Tea - Complaint
DUNKIRK, MARYLAND -- I ordered a Grande iced tea at the Dunkirk, MD, Starbucks and indicated I wanted just the tea in one cup and a cup of ice in another. Employee proceeds to hand me a cup one-third full of tea! I asked her to please fill it up, and she said: "Then you will be getting two teas for the price of one." First of all, Starbucks prices are totally out of control. Second of all, since when does the consumer only get one-third quantity of the full amount paid for? The truth is, Starbucks makes big bucks at your expense by adding a full cup of ice and one-third cup of beverage. The same holds true for some of the coffees where the cup contains mostly foam instead of coffee. It really Starsucks, if you know what I mean.
