Starbucks' Bottled Diabetes

As much as I love Starbucks, I'm pretty sure that this drink will be the death of me. The sight of this bottled frappuccino may be very beautiful and attractive, but I bullshit you not, what contained on the inside is not as good as what it looks from the outside. 

Too sweet, too instant, and too expensive. The more I drink it, the more I can feel diabetes building up inside of my body. This Starbucks' beverage is just plain sugar with a dollop of milk and a drip of espresso. Even by the first sip, I can already taste that something's not right with this drink. It's too sweet, even for my liking! I told my Mom to take a few gulp just to make sure that my tastebud is not overreacting, and yet she shared the same opinion as me. 

I actually bought two of them, this one is the Starbucks' Bottled Coffee Frappuccino Coffee Drink, and the other one is the Starbucks' Bottled Dulce de Leche Frappuccino Coffee Drink in which I forgot to take picture of before I drink it so it didn't make it to this particular blog post. But, despite all that, there was hardly any significant differences from each products; same artificial sweetness, same diabetes. My cousins and aunt tried a gulp each as well and they made the same sour face despite this drink being sweet as hell. "Too sweet," they said.

I don't think it's worth spending Rp36.000,00 for a bottle of diabetes. Sure, there's the bitterness from the coffee and the creamy texture of milk, but there was just way too much sweetener in this bottle. Don't get me wrong, though. I mean, if you are fond of coffee and are looking for some serious coffee business, you might as well go to a nice coffee shop anywhere that serves manual brewed coffee and asked the barista to make you a cup with its' best single origin coffee. It ought to be cheaper and nicer. But, if you are just drinking coffee for the sake of lifestyle, be it Starbucks, then help yourself.
