to think that a softplay is not 'proudly serving Starbucks Coffee' if they are in fact using a can of squirty UHT cream?

When you pay Starbucks prices for roadside caf' rankles a bit.

They use squirty cream too confused

1) They probably mean the coffee beans, not the recipes.
2) Starbucks use squirty cream too.

Yy Starbucks use squinty cream.

Do they ask your name for the full Starbucks nosey Parker experience?

Starbucks cream is whisked by fairy unicorns galloping around a bowl with their horns in the cream, isn't it?

Is that tax deductible fairy unicorns?

They don't use squirty cream. They use real cream in a whipping cannister. Thick, real cream.

The softplay used UHT squirty cream. Thin, UHT cream. Not the same thing at all.

Lol at "squinty cream" grin

Weird thread. I prefer Costa.

They said they were serving Starbucks coffee, not Starbucks cream.

lougle Thu 30-Oct-14 17:17:26

It is a big issue! <narrows eyes>

If I'm paying 40p for 'whipped cream', I don't expect to be given a measly squirt of UHT cream that dissolves on contact.

lougle Thu 30-Oct-14 17:18:27

HowlCapone - They use a Starbucks price list with 'whipped cream' listed as 40p. Just the same as a normal Starbucks coffee shop.

Starbucks is substandard. Costa is the way forward!

YonicScrewdriver Thu 30-Oct-14 17:26:05

But Starbucks prices aren't that different to other coffee prices, are they?

Purplepoodle Thu 30-Oct-14 17:27:51

They are serving Starbucks coffee - they don't say anything about Starbucks whipped cream

Scholes34 Thu 30-Oct-14 17:28:44

I'm with NewEra and Pancakes and would be happy, and proud, to avoid the Starbucks coffee, with or without the squirty cream and wait until I find the nearest available Costa.

googoodolly Thu 30-Oct-14 17:29:36

Starbucks don't charge extra for cream though confused

TheLostPelvicFloorOfPoosh Thu 30-Oct-14 17:30:04

Costa is clearly superior to Starbucks in so many ways, but unfortunately, Costa do not make pumpkin spice latte. Starbucks wins.

Plus, Costa pay their taxes and so cannot afford fairy unicorns.

Costa is much nicer. But the softplay we went to serve Starbucks.

YonicScrewdriver Thu 30-Oct-14 17:38:09

I don't think it's relevant whether costa or Starbucks is better (to which the answer is Nero) as the OP was a captive audience at soft play.

YonicScrewdriver Thu 30-Oct-14 17:38:29

X post!

Anyone who puts whipped cream of any type on coffee deserves to be overcharged for it. Revolting.

Starbucks are tax evading shit coffee.

Costa Coffee is much nicer.
