The Edward, a complex frappuccino, became famous after a post by the barista who made it went viral. If you are interested in having one, a question you need to be answered is “How much does the Edward cost at Starbucks?”
The Edward costs $14. You can also procure it using your 150 Starbucks customer reward points. I tried it recently when I found myself out of drink ideas. It did not disappoint. If you are looking to have some fun with your drink, I would suggest you try out the Edward. It is famous enough for most Starbucks baristas to know how to make it without you having to list the ingredients. If you are on the customer reward program and have accumulated some points, getting the Edward would be a good treat.
What is in the Edward Starbucks – How many ingredients does the Edward have?
The Edward is a frappuccino with 13 additional ingredients, all from the Starbucks menu. Basically, it is a Caramel Crunch Frappuccino with five bananas, seven pumps of dark caramel sauce, and one pump honey blend. The detailed order is quite a mouthful, with all the extras for most ingredients. It comes in a Venti size cup of Caramel Crunch Frappuccino, double blended. With heavy cream and 7 frappuccino chips. 5 pumps of frappuccino roasted coffee are added. Extra salted brown butter, 1 pump honey blend, extra Caramel Crunch, and dark caramel sauce, 7 pumps. The drink also has extra ice. The drink is topped with extra whip cream, extra cinnamon dolce, extra caramel drizzle, and 5 bananas.
Customizing beverages is at the centre of the Starbucks experience. Baristas are trained to help you find and craft drinks to your liking. However, it is important to note that complex beverages take more time and effort, and can at times put a lot of pressure on the staff. Be kind and appreciate them.
How did the Edward Starbucks become so popular?
It became popular after a post by the barista who first made it went viral on Twitter. Soon after, Starbucks let him go, even after he deleted the tweet, for violating Starbucks’ social media policy. On hearing this, Edward, the client, reached out to him, to reassure him he did nothing. The barista then re-posted an image of the order printout that is still accessible on the internet to date.
