During the Great Depression, historian and author James Truslow Adams helped the citizens of the United States indoctrinate the concept of The American Dream. In his 1931 book, Epic of America, Adams wrote:
But there has been also the American dream, that dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for every man, with opportunity for each according to his ability or achievement.
Eighty-two years later, a 27-year-old Washington man successfully realized this aesthetic with one gluttonous Starbucks order.
Beau Chevassus forever cemented his status as a true American treasure when he ordered what many believe to be the most expensive Starbucks order ever—a $47.30 "Quadriginoctuple Frap." He started off by ordering a venti Frappuccino, then added 48 shots of espresso, mocha drizzle, strawberry and mango flavoring, soy milk, protein powder, two bananas, and a whole bunch of other
crap necessary ingredients. The only real issue is that it didn't have any Four Loko or Baconnaise.
