I am so excited to write this blog post! If you have been on Youtube, you must be familiar with the trend that has been going on a couple of months back. This is where people are letting Youtubers pick their Starbucks drinks for a week.
I decided to give this a shot and DM-ed Youtubers that I usually watch. I never thought I would get a response but lo and behold, I did! I got a couple of responses that’s good for a week’s worth of coffee.
For the first day of this challenge, I chose Danielle Carolan‘s drink choice – A Grande Hot Cappuccino with Soy Milk. I honestly never had milk alternative in my orders so this is a first and I must say, it’s good! I might have to start doing soy milk from now on.
For Tuesday, I was in a mood for a cold beverage so I picked Hannah Ashton‘s order which is the Grande Iced Matcha Latte. Okay, Confession time: I am not actually sure if matcha is the same with green tea. I tried ordering Matcha but the barista told me they only have green tea and according to her, it is basically the same thing so I just agreed and got the Iced Green Tea Latte. I loved it as it has the good amount of tea flavor without it tasting like a plant. Lol. I would also definitely order this again.
The third day, I went ahead and ordered Massiel Nunez‘s drink of choice, a Grande Iced Caramel Soy Latte. She told me to get the hot one but I totally forgot and got the iced instead. Lmao. My goldfish brain is at it again. I love anything that has caramel in it so this drink was just right up my alley!
A little story time on this, something went wrong on SB’s system and I was not able to get my beverage star for my order. I got a call from the manager of the branch that I went to and he told me about the technical glitch they had, as a part of their apology, they shouldered the cost of my drink and I got one free star too, so yay for free drink!
I was so excited to order this because I am a huge cold brew fan! Abby Asselin came through with a cold brew-based drink! She asked me to get the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew but no vanilla syrup and 2 pumps of sugar-free vanilla and 2 pumps toffee nut. That was a long ass drink order but I was so pumped to get it! Unfortunately, pumpkin syrup was already out of stock and toffee nut syrups are for holiday drinks only. What a bummer! Nevertheless, I still pushed through with the cold brew with 2 pumps of sugar-free vanilla and 2 shots heavy cream. It was good! I was just not sure if I’d order this again. I might just go for the basic cold brew with no hassle, no fuss. Just basic for a basic girl like me. Lmao.
This day was also one of the best as I got my drink for free again! Always a good time saving bucks!
We are down to the last drink! I made it through! I was so happy to have completed this! Taylor Rochelle‘s drink choice was a Tall Ice Vanilla Coffee with cream, no classic and a pack of stevia. Of course, it is not a Jam thing if I haven’t messed up an order. I got a Grande Iced Vanilla Coffee with WHIPPED cream instead of the normal cream! Lmao. Also, I cannot work with only a tall one. I need to have grande or venti or else I will not function. Haha! Nevertheless, Taylor’s order is my favorite among all the drinks that I have tried. Will get this one again!
And that’s all for this challenge! A week of having Youtubers that I love pick my coffee order. I am so grateful for all of them! I linked their channels above so you can go check them out. I love it when creators are engaging with their followers, it really feels like having a friend from the other side of the world.
Also… here are the other creators that replied and sent their drink choice. Unfortunately, PH Starbucks do not have almond milk and pumpkin syrups anymore so that’s a bummer. I would still love to give these amazing people a big thank you for taking a time of their day to respond to my DMs and send their SB order.
I hope you guys enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed doing it! Also, let me know your favorite coffee order, I would love to try it too! 🙂
