When ordering green tea at Starbucks they fail to mention they add a sweetener. I'm over the sugar being added to everything, especially for children. I have yet to find any kid-friendly beverages offered by Starbucks. Except milk which is questionable. Even the soy milk is suspected of being GMO so other than water what is safe?
Recently I entered a Starbucks and agreed with my 9 year old daughter that a green tea would be an acceptable choice for her. I specifically asked that they do not add the sweetener. I tasted it before I handed it to her and either they added it anyways or it just naturally comes sweet at Starbucks. As an avid green tea drinker I can honestly say there isn't much original green tea flavor in their green tea. I get it, green tea is not the favorite flavor for most people but sweetening it beyond recognition is nearly a crime. Especially when I'm trying to keep my child from becoming a diabetic.
Starbucks, you are doing it wrong.
