A Box Full o’ Ugly

Seen at Starbucks on Thursday:

box full of ugly

What would go into a Starbucks box whose contents label reads “UGLY” in large black letters? My guess is that it’s the “toffee” that goes into the Toffee Mochas. Those things taste terrible and led to me to quip that “toffee” must be some kind of Seattle slang for “ass”.

I don’t like the toffee mocha, either…but I -do- work for Starbucks, and know what the Ugly stands for. The warehouses are huge, and are divided into alphabetical sections. Instead of just A, B, C, D, they’re named. Zebra, Ugly, Face, etc.

Now you know, and as G.I. Joe always said, knowing is half the battle.
