A woman in Phoenix, AZ ordered a sugar free latte and found there was an extra ingredient in it.
She felt something “slimy” in her mouth. When she spit the item out, she discovered a tiny lizard had been brewed with her coffee.
She explains, “I was like, ‘Oh my God.’ I was almost going to swallow it… It was just so gross knowing it was in my mouth.”
She and her husband put lizard in a bag and returned to the Starbucks where they had purchased the drink. Staff at the shop apologized and offered the couple gift cards, which, not surprisingly, they turned down.
Starbucks also released a statement that it’s “disturbed to learn about this” and plan on “looking into this immediately.” The grocery store is checking with a pest control company, adding that this is an isolated event.
