The Weird Thing Kim Kardashian Hates About Coffee

Kim Kardashian is the queen of the Kardashian empire and one of the biggest personalities in pop culture. Over the years, she has expanded her brand to include everything from reality TV stardom to being a business owner and aspiring lawyer. Kardashian is also very well-known for her curvy figure, and for many, she pioneered a place for full-figured women in the world of entertainment.

Kardashian works hard to stay in shape and adheres to a very strict diet that is partially responsible for getting her into fighting form. Still, she is allowed some small treats – including coffee from time to time.

Although Kim Kardashian works out a lot and can credit the gym for sculpting her impressive abs, a big part of any fitness routine is formed in the kitchen. Kardashian follows a very strict diet, put together for her by her bodybuilder trainer Melissa Alcantara.

The reality star sticks to mainly lean proteins and lots of fruits and vegetables, as well as good fats (such as avocado) and simple carbs. Staples for Kim Kardashian include broccoli, kale, salmon, venison, spinach, zucchini, quinoa, and berries such as blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries. 

Processed foods are not part of her healthy eating plan, and Kardashian very rarely indulges in things like bread, sweets, and even bottled salad dressing. Still, she does get occasional cheat meals, and when she does, she almost always reaches for things like ice cream and cupcakes. Kardashian admittedly has a serious sweet tooth, which is definitely present in her coffee order.

Does Kim Kardashian drink coffee?

In a recent interview, Kim Kardashian opened up about her diet and what she orders when she allows herself to have a Starbucks treat. Although caffeine isn’t something that she enjoys every day in her healthy eating plan, Kardashian heads to Starbucks on her cheat days for her favorite treat. She admitted that when she does get to enjoy coffee, she always orders a short white mocha with whipped cream. 

Although the drink itself is indulgent, the short size is the small option that Starbucks offers – short of a sample cup, that is. Furthermore, Kardashian admitted that she will only allow herself three sips of the drink before throwing it away. Although that might sound wasteful, it seems as though she has figured out what works for her body and exactly how much of a treat she needs before switching back to her normal, super-healthy routine.

Kim Kardashian might have a fondness for Starbucks, but she also has a secret pet peeve that likely means she tries to keep her coffee shop trips very short. In an interview from several years ago, Kardashian revealed that she absolutely hates the sound of the cardboard sleeve being slipped on or off the Starbucks cup. She admitted: “I leave the room for someone to take it off for me because I cringe from the sound. It’s like nails on a chalkboard for me. I hate cardboard.”

A lot of people have bizarre phobias, but this one is certainly weirdly specific. Kardashian didn’t specify whether it’s specifically the Starbucks cardboard cup sleeves that she can’t stand, or if her phobia extends to all coffee shop cardboard sleeves. She also didn’t reveal if she brings her own reusable cup in order to avoid the dreaded sound. Still, it’s clear that she is like thousands of other people all over the world and hates certain small annoyances.
