Expectation vs reality

When you want to try Starbucks new Frappula frapp, expecting it to look like the picture on the left, but getting the pic on the right instead. I placed a mobile order and when I went in to get it, it wasn’t even ready. The girl making it had no clue what this drink even was and ended up making me something with a coffee base and drizzling in caramel sauce for the first try… this was the second try…. and it tasted horrible! I ended up throwing it away because honestly it just seemed like she tossed in a little bit of this and that. Whatever combo she came up with was not good! 

This clearly isn’t a huge deal at all. A little annoying, yes. A waste of money, definitely. I only wanted to try the drink because I liked the way it looked in the picture. I would have even overlooked the fact that the drink looked nothing like the pic Starbucks posted, if the drink actually was good. I’ve had plenty of things (food, drinks, etc) that looked completely different (some looking completely like shit) than the promo pic, but the taste was perfect. In the end, that’s what matters. Sure I want it to look pretty like the picture since that’s what is persuading me to buy it in the first place… but whatever. 

I didn’t want Starbucks anyway today lol. I’d consider it a win for me if I wasn’t out $5.30. Note to self- next time just pass on any Starbucks 4 day limited edition drinks.
