    sounds like a hoax to me. Frankly I don't drink Starbucks anyway as they are too expensive for me.

    The downside to the Internet is that it is now very easy for myths, hoaxes, half-truths and snippets of information taken out of context to go viral and quickly spread.

    It can be a valuable source of information as long as one practices due diligence and verifies facts from multiple sources before jumping to conclusions or making important decisions.
