Starbucks Most Popular Drink Can't Be Made
This week, ketchup, pet food, and toilet paper shortages are escalating (yep, again).
Starbucks ran out of oat milk last month after launching new products. Insiders report another Starbucks shortage.
Starbucks baristas report flavoured syrups are in short supply.
Vanilla and caramel are limited in some locations, while brown sugar syrup, used in one of the brand's most popular cocktails, is rare.
If you're a lover of the Honey Oatmilk Latte or Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso, you may need to negotiate with your barista on a flavour substitution until supplies improve.
Sometimes their Starbucks "doesn't get shipments," so staff "operates on the bare minimum."
The coronavirus epidemic and its impact on manufacturing are behind these shortages.
Starbucks' difficulties may extend beyond flavoured syrups. Employees report cups and pastries are low.
Some customers may borrow sanitised reusable cups for a $1 through the chain's new Borrow a Cup initiative, unveiled this week. Check out the one coffee trick everyone's trying.
