Social media star, Harlee – who has 10k Instagram followers – is obsessed with the treat, but knows it just tastes better in a branded cup. But the diva dachshunds owner has come up with a sneaky way to get Harlee to enjoy a puppuccino at home, and save some money. His owner, from Liverpool, has saved a cardboard Starbucks cup from a previous visit so that the three-year-old long haired dapple dachshund, thinks he’s getting the real deal.
In a TikTok video watched by more than 110,000 people, Harlee’s owner tried to make him a puppuccino at home, using piped whipped cream in a glass mug, even using a nozzle that mimics the piping of Starbucks’ pup-cups.
However, the pampered pup knew he was being duped, and thought the treat looked ‘suspicious’.
He cautiously licks the whipped cream, but certainly isn’t sure about the imposter puppuccino before deciding it ‘tastes funny’.
His owner then scoops the cream into their trusty Starbucks cup, adding extra cream with ‘aerosol cream sound effects for extra convincing’, before presenting it to the pup.
Harlee – who has 10k Instagram followers – sticks his snoot straight in the cup to enjoy his ‘real’ Starbucks puppuccino, saying it’s ‘so much better’.
Other coffee lovers have agreed that their drinks always taste better in the branded cups, with one viewer writing: “My coffee tastes better in a Starbucks cup too, so I can relate.”
People have been obsessed with Harlee’s diva attitude, too, with one commenting: “Tell me you have a dachshund without telling me you have a dachshund.”
Another added: “Haha, zero hesitation the second time.”
