Starbucks - Hot Chocolate Caste System

Jetgirly | Mar 11, 2009 07:09 PM

Starbucks in my area are now serving two types of hot chocolate.

If you want the kind of hot chocolate they've always served, you have to specifically order a "signature" hot chocolate.

Otherwise, you get something akin to Cadbury's powdered hot chocolate from a can, minus only the dehydrated marshmallows.

Neither of the two Starbucks I've been to indicate that there are two types of hot chocolate being served. I was automatically charged less than the posted price for my crappy hot chocolate today.

What's up with this? Some kind of recession thing? BIG THUMBS DOWN.
