The Mormon Guide to Starbucks

336934

Those readers who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints know that the Word of Wisdom prohibits  alcohol, illegal drugs, tobacco and drinking coffee and tea. For those of you who can’t get enough of Barnes and Noble and need something to drink while enjoying your newest book or just need something to help you cool off in the summer or warm up in the winter, here’s a list of some great non-coffee drinks to get at Starbucks in the United States!

Breaking News:

Caffeine-Free Crystal Ball Frappuccino Special

Coming to a Starbucks Near You

On this historic day, March 22, 2017, Starbucks is breaking into the fortune-telling business. Or at least they’re offering a drink that might make you think so. It’s called the Crystal Ball Frappucino, and it’s only available for the next four days. This peach flavored drink is infused with turquoise sparkles to create a marbling effect.

“The magic happens when the peach-flavored whipped cream is sprinkled with one of three colored candy gems, each color signifying a different fortune in vivid blue, green and purple. Only the fates can decide which color is revealed – the customer will not know which color of candy gem will top the beverage,” Starbucks explained in a press release.

Blue signifies adventure, green means luck, and purple foretells magic. So if you want to drink Starbucks Mormon style, and take Professor Trelawney‘s divination class at the same time, this is the drink for you.
