    Is the protein powder required for the smoothies?

    Well it's on the card. But I've seen people ask for them PR so technically no it's not.

    Yes, you need the protein.

    I hated the old smoothies. They just tasted horrible to me especially the SS.

    Yeah but I HATE ordering the evolution strawberry juice. We'll get it and it expires in two weeks at best, and sometimes it's just lost in the dairy cooler somewhere so we don't get it right away so we might have two or three days. Either way, we've probably thrown away an average of 6 bottles per month in the last few months, so I'm glad to see it go. And I can't remember the last time we finished a container of yogurt. And at least we'll get some use out of the protein powder again, although it's still a huge waste.

    Are we going to get the Egg Bites with the bacon wrapped around it or just the Egg White & Roasted Red Pepper?

    I'm not sure. We hadn't gotten them by Friday, and I had the weekend off. :D

    The addendum said we are only carrying the veggie egg bites.

    My new set is kind of pathetic. I didn't get much, and had none of the Xmas carry forward stuff that is called for. I ended up keeping the baskets on the bottom shelf of each cube. And I think we have too many grab 'n go snacks.

    Same here.
    We didn't get everything & we had NONE of the hot cocoa left (as opposed to LAST year when we couldn't GIVE it away) so yeh, we did the basket thing too.
    Did anyone try some of those snacks?
    Most of them were blah to meh but the little fruit bits were just nasty.

    I haven't tried them, and the cartwheel hasn't really been helping sell them.

    on the updated pastry signage, the cake pops aren't listed as 2-for anymore. does that mean we're not doing that deal anymore? not having to remember to price change cake pops in multiples would be... amazing.

    I'm off today and freaking out BC my DM sent me a text saying she stopped in to check my promo and has some compliance/standard concerns and would be emailing me the documentation tonight. I have no idea what it could be and I'm so worried we're in trouble.

    My guess would be someone out of uniform behind bar, or closed for a break. Once they see something wrong, they will start to dig. Make a plan quickly about what you will do to resolve the situation. I don't think they want to put us on compliance if they don't have to.

    Do Starbucks TLs have to go through additional coffee knowledge training? Because the TL at my old store seemed very confused when I tried to start a dialog about the different preparations of coffee (washed, semi-washed, etc.). I know that's more knowledge than the average barista knows, but I'd expect someone like a TL to know some of that basic-advance knowledge.

    We're supposed to know that in the same sense that the cashiers should push the additional assistance button the instant the lines get past 1+1 or how the sales floor zone should be green at all times. Should we know it? Absolutely. Is it worth our time to know it? Nope.

    That seems to be the biggest difference between "corporate" and "licensed" where corporate SMs push hard to learn all that stuff, it's the only way to move up from basic barista. But I might just be a bigger coffee snob than I think. lol.
