Oops, they did it again.
Starbucks, that prolific purveyor of chocolate wishes and caffeine dreams, today launched two new coffee concoctions: the Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato and the Iced Cinnamon Almond Milk Macchiato.
As if the seductive drink titles weren’t enough, Starbucks is offering customers a twofer from Thursday, March 2 to Monday, March 6 (e.g. buy one macchiato between 2pm and 5pm and get a second macchiato free).
The reaction to Starbucks’ new drinks – the former designed for sweater weather and the latter for Spring – has been nearly 100 percent positive. Obvi, most people like the idea of fun new drinks that are as pretty as they are tasty. But we’re not most people.
In fact, here’s a message from our food editor to the evil coffee empire responsible for sabotaging the diet she and millions of other women were "starting tomorrow" and ruining their plans for a Spring body reboot.
