Starbucks’ 40th Anniversary

9 Mar

In honor of Starbucks’ 40th anniversary, the successful coffee company has introduced a few new items to the menu.

Along with their new logo on their cups and sleeves (remaining nameless), starting today, the Cocoa Cappuccino and Starbucks Petites are available to purchase in their shops.

According to FitPerez, the Cocoa Cappuccino combines fresh espresso, bittersweet mocha sauce, steamed milk and foam, and  a mocha drizzle.

The Petites are small sweets including Cake Pops (available in Birthday Cake, Rocky Road and Tiramisu flavors), Red Velvet Whoopie Pies, Mini Cupcakes (Carrot Cake and Peanut Butter) and Sweet Squares (Lemon and Salty Caramel).

Starbucks has finally realized that people are looking for small treats to go well with their coffee; all of their existing desserts are too filling (and high in calories). I noticed that Starbucks has made an effort in the store to display the calorie counts for all of their new items, which persuades consumers into buying a “petite” dessert because is not as harmful as one might think. The company has truly stole my heart with their rocky road cake pop…only 180 calories!! Yum!!!
