And dear people, if it does not come out of the nipple of a mammal*, it ain’t milk, it is some sort of juice processed with all kinds of chemicals to make it taste like milk.

Update:

Here is a relevant article from the NY Post:

Plant-based milk may be double the price but people are drinking it up

The plant-based market’s biggest drivers, almond milk and soy milk, cost almost double at $4.29 a half-gallon (64-ounces) each, compared to $2.17 for regular dairy milk, according to a price check by FreshDirect. The price tag on oat milk is almost 2.5 times the cost of dairy milk, at $5.29 a half-gallon.

This article is from 2019, but a quick online search shows that while the prices have changed, the ratios have stated the same.

So anyone with a modicum of understanding of business should get why requesting almond, soy, or oat mik would come with an surcharge, the cost of the ingredient is higher.

But that fact is relevant to activist idiots like Cromwell.

  1. When will you stop charging more for…..
    .
    As soon as that product costs the same or less than the item it is replacing.

  2. I’d put it a little differently.
    .
    We’re always going to have some nuts who pull stunts like this. What matters is the response. If you, say, press charges for vandalism, trespassing etc. every single time, the incident rate will go down.
    .
    If, however, the only repercussion is an outpouring of “he/she/* is so brave…!” on Twitter, then you’ll see a lot more of it.

  3. I tolerate the “almond milk” term because it goes back to the Middle Ages. It’s grandfathered in, as far as I’m concerned.

    But oats and all the other bizarre crap they try to “milk”? No.

  4. Starbucks bent the knee to the progtard crazies repeatedly. They crapped their bed, now they can share it with the progtards. Couldn’t care less.

  5. First world problems, the dancing monkey should check his privilege. Also isn’t cow’s milk technically plant based anyway?

  6. This was a good thing if left alone. Think about it this way, 1 less crazy actor on the street. 2. 1 less available seat in Starbucks for crazy people. 3. If left long enough the smell of rotten actor would clear the whole store. Win, win,win.

  7. 76 shovel, I agree.

    (manager) “Sorry, everybody! It’s closing time! Everybody out!. Staff, you will be paid until the closing time you expected”

    (shuts off light, heat, ventilation, locks *all* doors, particularly bathroom, locks entrance doors)

    “See you Monday!”

    (crybaby)”But…but…but, it’s Wednesday!”

    (Manager) “Yep, sure is! Have a nice weekend!”

  8. Reltney,

    Agreed. Remember the British crazies from Extinction Revolution? (or whatever?) that superglued themselves to the streets to protest all fossil fuels in February? Take away their plastic foam yoga mats, Goretex jackets, then dump a big bucket of water on them. Post a perimeter, and leave them to protest alone for a few days.

  9. Ya know, I think that Mercedes shouldn’t charge more for a Cabriolet than Toyota charges for a Corolla.

  10. This is also a case of it costs to be nice. Because the profit on a cup of coffee was high enough when someone wanted a cup with extra cream the company just ate the cost difference.

    When the company’s costs have gone way up and they aren’t passing those costs on to the customers there is less room for free upgrades.

    The company then starts charging for what use to be a free upgrade and the customers that are privileged revolt.

    Example, local diner use to provide upgrades from chips to French fries or home fries for the same low cost.

    The burger plate has stayed nearly the same price but the price of those upgrades when way up.

  11. Yes, a platypus is a mammal (as is a spiny anteater), though both lay eggs. As the word indicates, a mammal is an animal with mammaries, independent of how its offspring come into existence.
