Concerns of Authenticity
Reviewed in the United States on January 31, 2020
This was a purchase directly from Amazon. I received a plain cardboard box of "Starbucks" branded K-Cups with the cups haphazardly thrown inside. Outside of box indicated it contained 4-boxes of 24, but obvious not true. Comparing next to an authentic Starbuck's K-cup, these "Starbucks" cups 1) weighed less than the official version; 2) sounded like there was something hard inside; 3) did not have warning or recycling logos as required in the US; 4) the logo/design was blurry, smaller, and generally lesser quality than officially-branded Starbuck's products; 5) taste of Pike's Place was bitter and watery compared to the real version. Therefore, I have concerns about the authenticity of this product and recommend purchase of another item.
5***** for Amazon support who took care of everything and promised to take a look at their warehouse inventory to see if other boxes may have similar problems.
