|It's the Great Pumpkin Spice Latte Shortage, Starbucks fans|
October 6, 2012
OH FUCK NO!
Here is further proof of Starbucks’ ubiquity and Global Overlord status — causing a “crisis” thanks to a shortage of one of its seasonal drinks. According to The Wall Street Journal, hordes of Americans are freaking out over the coffee giant’s Pumpkin Spice Latte, a beverage it offers during the fall. Why? Because the high demand for the drinks has caused shortages of the syrup used to flavor the delicious frothy beverage. The company said it doesn’t believe there is a widespread shortage of the syrup, though demand has caused shortages from infrequent deliveries. Still, that hasn’t mollified some customers, who have trekked to multiple stores in search of the sauce or — gasp! — ordered the instant version of the drink.
