Starbucks customers can be very particular about their drinks, as witnessed by the many TikToks from both customers and employees. But one gripe keeps coming up: Too much syrup.
Just last week, the Daily Dot covered one customer who allegedly ordered 40 pumps of syrup in his drink. This week, Starbucks barista @yoselin972 called out those who “don’t understand” quite how much syrup they’re asking for in their drinks, cutting to a photo of an iced coffee that calls for 21 pumps of caramel syrup and eight pumps of classic syrup.
This was in response to a question about who orders the Trenta size, which is 31 ounces and only for iced drinks. The TikTok has more than 165,000 views.
In the comments, a former Starbucks worker says a regular would ask for 48 pumps of classic syrup in a Venti coffee every day. A January TikTok showed employees dumping containers of pumpkin spice syrup, a cold end to pumpkin spice latte season.
We reached out to yoselin972 for comment.
