just to warn you all:
bux will be selling two more new frappuccinos, both containing banana sauce, coconut syrup and stupid little coconut flakes to go on top of the whipped cream.
that scream you hear is all baristas pulling their hair out and crying uncontrollably.
why bux? why?
what's funny is that different regions have different roll out dates. from bravemonkey i found out that canada had citrus cupcakes before part of the states. and from alex i heard that london has already started their summer promo and are currently serving banana frappuccinos (but without the coconut syrup and flakes).
london is actually where i first saw the caramel creme and strawberries and creme fappuccinos - almost a year before any bux in the states made them. but my favorite london bux story is when i tried to order an iced caramel macchiato and they wouldn't let me!
"we can't make that," super hip london barista informed me.
"why not?" i asked, genuinely surprised.
"because it's not on the menu," she stated.
"uh, well you have hot caramel macchiatos on the menu."
"yes, we can make them hot but not iced." london barista seemed not to see how idiotic her statement was.
"okay, why don't you ring me up for a hot one and just make it iced?"
"because it's not on the menu." she said again.
"all right," i said, but i wasn't about to give up on the iced drink of my choice. "i'd like an iced grande three pump vanilla latte with caramel drizzle on top. can you make that?"
london barista rang me up, not even realizing they were indeed making me an iced caramel macchiato. crazy london buxters!
barista rant: why do you bring in your filthy personal mug for refills? why can't you rinse it out once in awhile? is your sense of smell gone? are you not tortured by the pungent odor of rancid milk and coagulated whipped cream like i am? next time i'm not rinsing your cup. maybe a mouthful of grossness will teach you to clean your own damn cup.
