Starbucks Lids Apparently Have a Secret Function That You Probably Didn’t Know

First, we found out that the small pocket in our jeans isn’t for our coins. Then we realized the loop on the back of our shirt serves a function, too.

All thanks to the Internet, here’s another secret: the lids of the Starbucks drinks that you’ve been buying apparently have a function, too: they’re used as coasters for your drinks.


While I still can’t understand why anyone would pay over $4 for a cup of coffee that you can find in a nearby coffee shop, this is a pretty nifty trick, especially when that coaster will keep your table dry.


Okay, granted that this isn’t such a great discovery, at least now it justifies the price more. And when more people learn of this, we’ll have drier tables in school.
