The Expectation vs Reality in Starbucks S’pore New Drink is Hilarious

If you’ve lived on this planet for a significant amount of time, you’d know that reality rarely lives up to our expectations.

Sometimes it’s our fault, because our expectations are simply too high.

Like when your crush asks you to meet them after school to do “homework” and you find out that all they want to do is actually do some homework.

Other times though, advertising companies are to blame.

Like when you buy McDonald’s latest burger and it looks like an electrocuted pigeon stuffed between two burnt buns.

While fast-food joints are usually the culprits when it comes to making something look better than it is, this time it’s a coffeehouse that’s trying to fool us.

The Expectation vs Reality in Starbucks S’pore New Drink is Hilarious

Starbucks is known for their fancy beverages and strange names. Some examples include:

Chilli Chocolate Delight.

Unicorn Frappuccino.

Peppermint Mocha.

I made one of those up and it’s not Unicorn Frappucino.

Recently, Starbucks introduced the latest addition to their already-long drink menu:

The Fantasy Tail Frappucino Blended Beverage.

The coffee joint announced the drink in a post on Facebook, describing it as “a fantastical seascape filled with the wildly fruity flavors of dragon fruit and mango, a generous dusting of blueberry powder, topped with a scrumptious chocolate tail.”

Sure, they’ve gone a little overboard with their excessively ornate description, but it certainly leaves your taste buds curious.

What would a “fantastical seascape” taste like in beverage form?

And how many drinks out there have a pink fish’s tail made out of chocolate sticking out of the cup?

This drink must be more than just a drink. IT’LL BE AN EXPERIENCE.

When Reality Strikes

However, one Starbucks lover who purchased the new drink noticed that it looked a little different to the one advertised by Starbucks in their post.

If you look closely, you’ll see the tears of the cursed individual who ordered this drink.

Clearly, this beverage looks nothing like the one advertised.

For one, that gorgeous dollop of whipped cream on top of the drink is in the drink.

Plus, that pink tail looks more like an old, chewed-up toy that a baby accidentally flung into the cup.

Worst of all, the drink DOESN’T EVEN LOOK PINK.

It looks more like the suds you see when doing the dishes than an actual beverage.

I don’t know who would actually buy this now after seeing what it really looks like.

Hardcore Starbucks Fan: They could literally pour water into a cup and call it Nature’s Delight and I’d still buy it.

Well, at least you’re honest about it.
