The Most Expensive Starbucks Drink In The World

image credit

A 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 the most expensive Starbucks drink in the world. Price: $23.60.

But be careful drinking it. The beverage contains 1400mg of caffeine. If you drank this all at once, it could put you in the hospital. Two of these could kill you.

i don’t know if you are misinformed or just want to generate traffic by being dramatic. please inform yourself and don’t spew crap to stupid people who might repeat what they read online like they usually do.

FROM WIKIPEDIA: The LD50 of caffeine in humans is dependent on individual sensitivity, but is estimated to be about 150 to 200 milligrams per kilogram of body mass or roughly 80 to 100 cups of coffee for an average adult.

so if you weigh 70 kg or about 154 lbs, you would need to take in a whopping 12,25 grams of caffeine (assuming the median 175mg/kg). even if there are 1,4 grams of pure caffeine in your decadent joke coffee-smoothie, which i doubt, nope – you would not die. not even from drinking two of them. you’re either stupid or deliberately dishing out false info. shame on you.

Before long, it will be illegal to sell this. Oregon might even replace their death will dignity drugs with two super lattes. Forget frying in an electric chair, two super lattes will be the executioner.

nonetheless, drinking 16 espresso shots is probably not the healthiest way to spend $23.50. Better save it for your dialysis instead. :)
