Frappuchino question?

Asked by kimchi (894 points ) July 19th, 2012

Okay, so today, I went to Starbucks. I wanted a Frappuchino, but one that didn’t ask for coffee. So I said “Can I have a Frappe without caffeine?” and they seemed confused. What is the name for Frappe without caffeine? I want to make it non-confusing…. Thanks! I really appreciate it!

“Frappe” simply refers to the Slurpeelike finely crushed ice.

Nothing else.

So did you still want coffee flavor, just decaf, or did you want a creme frappuchino?

You wanted a decaf frappucino. But you didn’t tell them what type of decaf frappucino you wanted: mocha chip., vanilla, chocolate or a number of others.

Yes as @zenvelo has mentioned. I order the Vanilla Bean Frappe. (Has no caffeine!)

Here is a fairly complete List of Starbucks Frappachinos with pictures. Some of them contain coffee (which is either caffeinated or decaf depending on what you want) and others do not have any coffee at all. Some of them have tea (which can also be caffeinated or not, whichever you choose). At Starbucks, because they have so many options, you gotta know exactly what you want and then tell them.

@Kardamom You’ve just wasted about half an hour of my time.

This may sound dumb but is decaf 100% caffeine free?

@thesparrow You’re headed over to Starbucks right now, aren’t you?

I just looked at the choices offered in @Kardamom ‘s link. Seriously?
If anyone ever hears me order a ‘double skinny latte with one shot decaf and one shot regular and chocolate on top’, please call an ambulance. I’m having a stroke.

@LuckyGuy I know, doesn’t that make you crazy when people do that. I’m not a big coffee drinker, so usually I only order an iced tea and they kind of look at me crazy like I haven’t said enough.

Oh, and LuckyGuy, you forgot to mention the direction you want you beverage stirred, clockwise or counterclockwise LOL

@Kardamom I prefer mine shaken, not stirred.

Can you imagine living a life where that kind of nonsense is important? How miserable their days must be with such disappointment lurking at every turn. “Oh no! I got a single skinny latte and I asked for a double. I can’t drink this swill.”
If you see someone complain like that, take note, and never date/mate with them. You will have a much happier life.

@LuckyGuy LOL Shaken not stirred! I’ll have to use that line next time I go into Starbucks.

I’d like a Bond Latte, shaken not stirred. I can’t wait to see the looks on their faces!

With their strong marketing research group and 24/7 web trolling software I wouldn’t be surprised if it was already on the menu waiting for you.

@Kardamom No, but I will be going very soon.

thesparrow's avatar

Wow they have a lot of things under 100 cal.. I really want to go to Starbucks

@thesparrow They should really put a Starbucks in the Fluther Cafe so we don’t have to venture out of the mansion to get a Frappuchino.

Does anyone know what’s in a Flutherchino?
