Starbucks Coffee in Winterfell? Game of Thrones Gets Trolled for Epic Blunder

Maybe its marketing, maybe its a mistake?

Starbucks in Game of Thrones

There’s a Starbucks in the Game of Thrones universe and we’re just confused as to how?

Starbucks is infamous for its franchises being everywhere. Now they’ve proved they’re literally everywhere (there’s no escape).

We don’t know how a stray Starbucks cup made its way onto the recent episode of Game of Thrones (maybe it’s marketing, maybe its a mistake), and in Winterfell of all places.

The fact that the seven kingdoms, which has everything from dragons and zombies (white walkers) is not as appalling as a Starbucks is!

Starbucks with the Starks

The iconic Starbucks cup with its plastic cover and logo was distinctly seen on a table at a feast in Winterfell in a recent episode. That cuppa was within reach of characters Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen.

The gaffe occurred during episode 4 of HBO’s hit series’ final season GOTS8, “The Last of the Starks.”

Before we lost our minds with theories of how Starbucks went to the past with Game of Thrones, GOT’s executive producers Bernie Caulfield, apologized to fans. She couldn’t believe it herself, as much as we couldn’t.

“I can’t believe (it),…..Our onset prop people and decorators are so on it a 1,000 percent.”

In an interview with New York’s WNYC radio on Monday, she cleared the conspiracies:

“We’re sorry! Westeros was the first place to actually have Starbucks,”

HBO made an even cheekier statement then Bernies’ apology. The broadcaster said that ‘the latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered a herbal tea.’

Starbucks took advantage of that moment watched by over 30 million GOT fans in the United States alone.

 

Their Dragon Drink is part of Starbucks’ summer menu.  A bright pink fruit and coconut milk beverage that contains the tropical dragon fruit, also known as pitaya.

While some fans took this opportunity to start a meme fest, others were disappointed. When you’ve waited forever for the final season the little things count (or hurt in this case).

The final season of the hit series GOTS8 has broken records for HBO, with the biggest season premiere.

The Emmy-winning series Game of Thrones is an adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” series of novels. According to the novelist the broadcaster, HBO already has three spin-off seasons in the works following the season finale of GOTS8.
