Starbucks Facts: It Has 87,000 Possible Drink Combinations

Did you just get a cup of coffee (oh, I'm sorry ... venti non-fat extra dry cappuccino) from Starbucks? Did you know that you've just ordered 1 of the 87,000 possible combinations of drinks there?

Brynn Mannino of Woman's Day wrote an interesting article about the 9 Things You Didn't Know About Starbucks:

1. There are over 87,000 drink combination possibilities.

We knew they had a big menu, but 87,000 options? In 2008, the company included this number as part of a full-page advertisement in two national newspapers. Starbucks spokeswoman Lisa Passe explained how they came up with it to a Wall Street Journal blogger: "If you take all of our core beverages, multiply them by the modifiers and the customization options, you get more than 87,000 combinations.”

If that's the case then my local coffeeshop has over 300,000 drinks because they sure as hell have way more modifiers than Starbucks.
