Logan Warren: East Texas Dude Gets Most Expensive Starbucks Drink Ever

Categories: Texas

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."

Sounds fun!

The drink:

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.

The FDA will make this illegal and have it the same schedule as cocaine and meth.

If someone gave me a Starbucks gift card, it would be a waste of money because it would never be used. Not that I hate Starbucks, perse, I just dont do coffee, and in once in a blue moon that I want some coffee or is easily available, it is either going to be given away or cost less than a dollar with bottomless refills.

I call BS - 16 shots of espresso would be at least 16 oz of additional liquid in a cup that only holds 24 oz.  Given that the basic frap recipe calls for at least 12 oz of liquid, the numbers just don't add up.

So, he's proud that he managed to waste the equivalent of an Indonesian factory worker's monthly pay, fucking around and concocting a drink that he no intention of ever drinking - just for the fun of wasting the money.

What a cool dude.

FYI: a lethal dose of caffiene is roughly the equivalent of 100 cups of coffee.

 I bet if you traced his IP it would go back to some factory in Indonesia.

Relax, man.  This sounds like one of the funniest ways to initiate a pledge, ever.
