I don’t know a whole lot about Mormons or the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. And I certainly don’t want to offend any of my Mormon readers, well, at least today. But from my understanding Mormons do not consume caffeine. So just for the heck of it, I decided to go to the Starbucks webpage and search for Salt Lake City Starbuck locations. I was suprised to discover a total of 21 locations.
Actually, according to Officemate Yang, the admonishment against caffeine is discretionary for members of the church. It’s recommended that they not consume it. My Mormon office neighbor regularly avails himself of the free sodas available here, for instance.
Myself, I can’t imagine life without tea!
