There are 80,000 Options for a Starbucks Beverage

At your local Starbucks you have lots of options. You could start by ordering a Tall, Non-Fat Latte With Caramel Drizzle. Or a Grande, Iced, Sugar-Free, Vanilla Latte With Soy Milk. Or how about a Decaf, Soy Latte With An Extra Shot And Cream, or a Non-Fat Frappuccino With Extra Whipped Cream And Chocolate Sauce? But don't forget the Venti Iced Skinny Hazelnut Macchiato, Sugar-Free Syrup, Extra Shot, Light Ice, No Whip.

According to Starbuck's global chief marketing officer, the company offers more than 80,000 drink combinations. And that's to say nothing of the food items you can order in addition to your drink. We've all become so accustomed to the hyper-customization Starbucks offers, but would happen if they came out one day and said, "You know what, this whole thing has gotten out of control. From now on, you'll be able to order just regular and decaf at all of our locations.' They wouldn't stay in business for very long.
