Would you be able to drink this monstrosity? Andrew came up with the idea after he watched the video of a previous Starbucks record, and knew he had to break the record of 55 espresso shots.
And you thought your Starbucks order was unhealthy. To celebrate the free drink offer that accompanies buying 12 Starbucks orders with your Starbucks Gold card, a man who goes by his coffee shop customer name of Andrew, decided to take his drink order to the next level. Andrew ordered a 128-ounce Sexagintuple Vanilla Bean Mocha Frappuccino for $54.75, setting the record for most expensive Starbucks creation ordered with the free drink offer.
You’re probably wondering what was in this monstrosity: a Venti vanilla bean caramel Frappuccino, 60 shots of espresso (4.5 grams of caffeine, just 5.5 grams away from a lethal overdose, according to Popular Science), mocha, white mocha, and caramel drizzle.The Mayo Clinic has stated that more than .5 grams of caffeine per day can result in a quickened heartbeat, tremors, and severe insomnia. But don’t worry, Andrew told Consumerist that he only drank one-third of his creation, and saved the rest for later.
“This type of beverage order is totally excessive and not something we encourage people to do,” a Starbucks representative told Seattle Weekly News. “After they make that beverage, it’s pretty inedible. Nor is it safe…They get excited about that Birthday beverage, but [in this case] had a little too much fun with it.”
