In today's supply crisis: Starbucks is out of ... a lot of things.
The news website Insider says it has seen an internal company document putting at least 25 items on "temporary hold" as of June 4 because of supply issues.
That includes items such as oat milk, certain syrup flavors and some pastries. There are also reports of shortages of plastic cold drink cups, meaning baristas may serve your next refreshing drink in a hot drink cup. That is if the cold drink is even available. Popular Refresher fruit drinks are also mostly unavailable. (A quick Twitter search yields mentions of frustration from Starbucks baristas as well as customers.)
"We are experiencing temporary supply shortages of some of our products. Specific items will vary by market and store, and some stores will experience outages of various items at the same time. We apologize for the inconvenience, and are working quickly and closely with our supply chain vendors to restock items as soon as possible," a Starbucks spokesman told Insider.
