Wear it and watch the the young and old become divided with laughter on one side and “I don’t get it” on the other.
Behold the real reason why there’s a Starbucks on every corner. You’ll never look at it the same way again.

Starbucks Happy Hour returns starting on May 4th and running through the 13th. During that time you can score half-priced Frappuccinos between the hours of 3-5pm. We’re talking ice cold Frapps for as little as $2 a pop here. That should definitely get you going on a hot day.

After a thorough, yet fastidious, evaluation, I am pleased to report that we are reformulating the affected products to assure the highest quality possible. Our expectation is to be fully transitioned to lycopene, a natural, tomato-based extract, in the strawberry sauce (base) used in our Strawberries & Crème Frappuccino blended beverage and Strawberry Banana Smoothie. Likewise, we are transitioning away from the use of cochineal extract in our food offerings which currently contain it (Raspberry Swirl Cake, Birthday Cake Pop, Mini Donut with pink icing, and Red Velvet Whoopie Pie). This transition will occur over time as we finalize revisions and manage production. Our intention is to be fully transitioned from existing product inventories to revised food and beverage offerings near the end of June across the U.S.
Apparently the cochineal extract was used to avoid artificial coloring agents.
In a recent interview with Businessweek, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz admitted that “the best cup of coffee known to mankind” is made at home using a French press. He notes that the press does the best job of extracting the “oils, flavor, and essence of blends”.
Schultz also outlines his morning coffee routine and the procedure he uses to brew with the press. For coffee aficionados, there aren’t any surprises here—except for the fact that he instructs readers by saying “don’t buy pre-ground coffee”. Naturally, this is at odds with many of the products his company sells.
