Starbucks Trivia # 2Jan 22nd, 2008 | By Jeric Peña | Category: Food, Starbucks
Welcome to the second episode of Starbucks Trivia brought to you by BrinkNotes.ORG! If you failed to read the first episode of Starbucks Trivia, you can read it by clicking here.
For this episode of Starbucks Trivia, we would be talking about the “lost” Rhumba drink by Starbucks.
One night during our regular Starbucks hangout with my siblings Dianne and Roxanne at Serendra, I asked the barista what happened to the Rhumba drink. There are two reasons why I asked the said question. First, I’m really curious about what happened to the drink for it is my favorite drink. Second, I want to test the barista’s knowledge (forgive me).
So, yeah, the barista knows the answer!
The barista told me something like this:
The Rhumba Drink got replaced by a new drink called Java Chip (which I’ve tried a lot of times). The ingredients are still the same except for one – the added “treat” on the drink. Rhumba has coffee bits on it while Java Chip got chocolate chips on it. The barista didn’t disclose the real reason behind why it was replaced by this Java Chip. Although I like the taste of Java Chip (almost the same with Rhumba) it would be nice seeing the Rhumba on their menu again.
