My question would be, are the vegan substitutes more expensive and, if so, how much extra cost do they add to the cost of the product?

I have a hard time taking serious vegans who would drink Starbucks. There’s a bit of a disconnect between these two things.

I'm intrigued; why? There is nothing intrinsically non-vegan about a cup of coffee. The vegans are asking for nondairy milk; how is that not vegan?

If the plant-based milks cost more than dairy milk, I see nothing wrong with charging more.

There are two reasons to be vegan - wanting to be ethical to animals, and/or wanting to be ethical to the planet. Well, health would be a third.

As for the first two, Starbucks mass bean-production for world-wide cheap distribution is neither good for the planet, nor peripherally to the animals in the places where they mass produce these beans.

For people who are vegan die their health I guess there’s not any particular reason to avoid Starbucks if they are doing it vegan.

the practice amounts to a tax on people who have embraced plant-based lifestyles

Sorry but why should those of us who have embraced other lifestyles effectively subsidize their preferences?

There is a place that I like to tell people with such views to go.
