Hi, While I was traveling oversea, FE, I saw Starbucks Coffee Drink Frappuccino Mocha pack of 24, 9 oz, sold in a local store. But all the packs at home were 12 bottles. The 24 Pack is real Starbucks? Does Starbucks ever pkg the coffee drink in 24 pack anywhere? I'd like to find out and would like to alert my friends out there if the 24 pack is what we called "copy cat".

Hi and welcome. For the most part, we are not the ones to ask about *$ as their coffee is pretty far down the quality scale these days. There was a time, many years ago when they made great coffee but not so much anymore today and most of us would rather go without coffee than to drink much if anything sold at a *$.
As far as marketing goes, I see no reason though that they could not sell 24 packs as well as 12 packs I don't think they have much to worry about with knock off or copy cats competing with them.
In real life, my name is Wayne P. Anything I post is personal opinion and is only worth as much as anyone else's personal opinion. YMMV!
