Hiya! Just before I get into this video, I thought I’d mention that I recently started a Youtube channel! I upload every Sunday (and maybe have some surprise videos as and when) so chances are, you’ve missed a cheeky upload! Please go and subscribe and show me love because it’s scary business!
I bet you’re reading the title and are just as confused as I am with paying. I don’t mean soy milk should be free or anything because no, I do believe we should have for our food and drinks hahah. What I mean is, why do we have to pay for soy milk when we’re at the likes of Starbucks or Costa?
You may have noticed or you may not have, but whenever you get anything other than dairy milk in your coffees or teas at coffee shops, you have to pay extra. Now I’m only talking maybe 30p more but still, why? Having soy milk as an option is so much more than just a choice.
People will allergies to dairy in any way may need to drink soy milk when out. I rarely see lactose free milk available so soy milk is the next best thing and I’m not even mentioning how people can be allergic to something other than lactose in dairy milk. I just don’t see why someone with an allergy to dairy should have to pay extra for a milk than they have to drink every single day because drinking normal milk is practically impossible for them to do. It’s almost like they are charging people for the cheek of having an allergy!
Soy milk is proven to be much better for you so why are they charging more for it? I personally feel like coffee shops should be promoting the healthier option to it’s consumers because it will benefit both the consumer and the business.
I’m still using the same quantity of milk if I used cows milk. This is the part I don’t understand. If I had cows milk in my drink, I don’t get charged but if I have plant milk in my drink, I get charged. I’m using the extra same quantity of milk and saving cows milk for someone else. It just doesn’t make sense to me because either way, the same amount of milk is still being used.
I don’t know if any of this made sense because again, I went on a bit of a rant. But let me know what you think?!
