I just got back from a starbucks break at work, and now im thinking...
is everything at starbucks kosher?
Pbviously, there aren't any mashgiachs on staff at any of the locations i've been to, and there is no 'te'udah' posted on their walls.
But for some reason, i've always understood that "coffee is always kosher" - whether you buy it at the cholov yisroel pizza shop or at mcdonalds.
But what about the rest of the items on the menu at Starbucks? i wasn't in the mood for a coffee (i think two by 12:30 is my limit - i think im starting to shake from all the caffeine) - so I got a medium (i think they call it tall??) white hot chocolate, no-fat, no whipped cream. It's pretty yummy, maybe tooo yummy, maybe its not kosher!
I haven't stopped drinking it. I can't stop. The office is way too cold. And it's way too yummy.
Should I just assume that everything at Starbucks is kosher, because everyone goes there? Or should I start figuring out how to work some tshuva time into my schedule?
