Mum is enraged by the state of a £4 Starbucks bacon roll that contains "literally one rasher."

When a Nottinghamshire mother opened a £4 bacon roll to find only a few slices of meat inside, she was "shocked."

Amy Hope Preston, a 22-year-old Newark medicine counter assistant, ordered the sandwich and a toffee nut latte from a Starbucks drive-through on Friday, December 10 and was taken aback when she opened her roll.

"I was so shocked," she said to NottinghamshireLive.

"There was literally one slice of bacon in it, the majority of which was fat and no butter," I said.

Ms Preston had dropped her daughter off at nursery and had gone straight to the drive-thru.

"I got home and opened it up to put my sauce on, and that's when I realized," she continued.

"I've ordered a lot of things from Starbucks, but usually just coffee; I won't be ordering food from them again."

The mother posted a photo of the underwhelming sarnie to a Facebook group, where it received nearly 400 likes and nearly 200 comments.

"I put it on social media because I couldn't believe it," she added.

A woman has shared a money-saving tip to get two drinks for the price of one at Starbucks for others who have been shortchanged by slender rashers.

TikToker "starlight_1995" gave coffee drinkers a tip on how to get a free drink with their purchase.

"I got a small Kiwi Refresher from Starbucks with no ice, and got another cup of ice on the side," she said of the money-saving hack.

As a result, an iced Kiwi Refresher and a "less perfect" Kiwi Refresher with no ice were created.

Some were quick to point out that they didn't get a free drink as a result of the tip.

"It's like the kid who discovered that if you cut a cookie in half, you get two cookies," one person said.

However, a free drink may not be ideal for those trying to lose weight, as the Starbucks fudge hot drink has more calories than a McDonald's cheeseburger, according to reports.

A grande Fudge Brownie Hot Chocolate has 364 calories, more than a McDonald's cheeseburger with 310 calories and only six calories less than a Bacon Mayo Chicken with 370 calories, according to the Starbucks UK website.

Losing those stubborn pounds may be a New Year's resolution, but with the meager rashers served in Starbucks' bacon rolls, the calories are already counted for you.
