Ariana Grande Under Fire After Fans Find Out Her New Starbucks Drink Isn’t Vegan
Grande partnered with Starbucks to create a signature drink called the Cloud Macchiato. It’s a beautiful drink with a puffy cloud topping that’s made with espresso, vanilla-flavored syrup, caramel sauce, egg foam, and milk. The milk and egg foam creates the dreamy topping but there’s one problem… there’s no way to make it vegan and still get that cloudy texture on top.

A Starbucks representative could not immediately be reached to confirm that the drink could not be made into a vegan version, but multiple baristas have posted on Twitter, as first pointed out by Buzzfeedthis link opens in a new tab, saying as much.
“IF I HAVE ONE MORE /VEGAN/ CUSTOMER COME TO STARBUCKS AND ASK FOR A CLOUD MACCHIATO MADE WITH SOY EXPECTING IT TO BE VEGAN IM GOING TO SCREAM,” wrote one employee.
