Two weeks ago, Instagram food account @DailyFoodFeed posted a photo of an off-menu Starbucks drink — dubbed the ~Matcha Pink Drink~ — and people quickly went wild for it.
But some people ordering the Matcha Pink Drink have been getting a beverage that doesn't quite look like the original photo:
In some photos, the matcha looks like it's taken over the drink...
Or like the two parts of the beverage haven't been layered properly:
In other photos, it looks like all of the above have combined to form... this:
As one Instagrammer writes: "If you order the matcha pink drink, this is what it will actually look like. Also, a venti is $7.90 pre-tax."
Commenters on the original Instagram post, as well as the follow-up photo, have taken to voicing their criticisms:
BuzzFeed Food reached out to Starbucks for comment and they had tips for ordering:
"If a customer would like to order a beverage that is not listed on our menu boards, we recommend they know the recipe so that their barista can handcraft the beverage perfectly for them," a Starbucks spokesperson told BuzzFeed Food. "For example, while we don’t offer an official Matcha Pink Drink, the green and pink layered beverage, if a customer would like to order this beverage, the easiest way is to ask for a Strawberry Acai Refresher with coconut milk instead of water, and layer it over coconut milk and matcha."
