permlink fat straw...

I thought 'Frappucino' was a poor name for a drink, but apparently the folks following Starbucks into the blended-ice coffee drink market are left with even slimmer pickings. Panera Bread's gimmick is to put a really wide straw in theirs and call them 'Fat Straw' drinks. Well, it's distinctive, anyway... permlink     6 comment(s)  
I like "frappucino" personally. But I don't like the fat straw stuff. The name is stupid, and it's actually not easy to drink out of those fat straws. So my plan is to grab an extra normal straw on my way out of the store whenever I buy one. Probably not what they had in mind. They are pretty yummy, though.

Coffee drinks are the spawn of Satan. I'll stick to soda, thankyouverymuch...

I think you guys are off the mark. FAT STRAW is an awesome name for those drinks and they clearly stand out from the crowd. Not to mention that the taste blows away anything by starbucks and dunkin' donuts. Panera rules, get with the program.

FAT STRAW is an awesome name for a soda shop like this. The drinks are fantastic. It has a sort of eclectic feel to it, but it goes along with the drinks fat straw sells.

To see the original FAT STRAWS check this site out. and you can see why you would actually need a fat straw. They have the best drinks. Smoothies, Bubble Teas, Coffee, and Frappes. Outstanding!!!
