Starbucks isn’t the only establishment that uses caffeine and sugar to keep its customers returning. According to studies conducted by Geraldine Wright at Newcastle University, UK, plants spike their nectar with specific sugary flavors and caffeine to keep bees loyal to their flower. The more bees frequent the flower, the more pollen is spread from the flower, meaning the flower’s “offspring” are spreading everywhere. Feels like a lot like all the Starbucks chain coffee houses pooping up everywhere, doesn’t it?
