6 Reasons Why We LOVE Starbucks

6 Reasons Why We LOVE Starbucks
Costa Rica Gringo
  1. Lets be honest, Starbucks has grown into a huge phenomenon in today's society. We have all heard of the brilliant frappucinos, teas, and lattes that they offer. The Coffee Houses that we know of today were redefined by the Starbucks craze that has been on the rise over the past years. We know that we have all tried Starbucks at some point and there's a couple reasons why we continually drown Starbucks with our love and money...

1. It is modeled after REAL Italian Coffee Houses

As stated in Starbuck's history, In 1983, a decade after Starbucks began in Seattle, Howard Shultz (One of the original founders) took a trip to Italy and was inspired by the amazing coffee houses. He then pitched the idea, and revamped to what we know as Starbucks today.

2. Over 87,000 drink combinations

Starbucks has no problem creating new items, they recently added the mini frappuccino, cookie straws, plus many new flavors every month. There are plenty of combinations to try ranging from just a simple pump of vanilla, raspberry, and sugar to ordering straight off the menu. I would love to meet the individuals who actually counted the number of possible combinations

3. They are the Subway of coffee

We have all heard the order that goes something like "Double Ristretto Venti Nonfat Organic Chocolate Brownie Frappuccino" and they do not question your order, they just write hieroglyphs on the cup and then it comes out in 2-3 minutes. Just like Subway, they make it the way that you want it.

4. They are already everywhere

Starbucks currently has around 22,000 stores worldwide as of March 12, 2015. They are without a doubt the largest Coffee House franchise in the world and they continue to expand. It is said that eventually Starbucks will intend to be in every country in the near future.

5. "Oh it's on the secret menu."

We've all had that snobby moment where we've ordered a Cookies and Cream frappuccino, or a Butterbeer Frappuccino, and have been asked the question "Where did you learn how to do this?" And of course we have replied with "It's on the secret menu that you can find online."

6. Gold Card Members have special treatment.

Lets face it, Gold Card Members are awesome... They have their own gold card, with their name on it. When Starbucks Baristas see it, they have an extra sense of happiness when they take your order. With a free drink of their choice on their birthday with many other benefits, Gold Card members rule the Starbuck's kingdom, and they know it.

But let's face it, Starbucks will always be delicious and we will continually love it. They have a good product, good franchise, and a good concept. Starbucks is doing business right!

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
