There’s been plenty of reason presented here to stay the hell away from Starbucks but la.foodblogging has a much more convincing reason, for today at least – the place is going to be packed! Turns out they are giving away some kind of free ice cream to anyone who comes in their stores today which translates into crowds of freeloaders. What a fun time! But wait, it gets worse. You might not be getting that free cone you’ve grown accustom to, losanjealous has the, um, scoop:
“Starbucks will be dishing out free ice cream Wednesday. Their promo photo makes it look like you’re going to get seven heaping scoops in a giant bowl, but the fine print says you get 4 oz. or less.
While you’re waiting in line be sure to convince yourself that you actually do like the taste of Starbucks coffee and that you haven’t succumbed to pressure from brand bullies.”
Look, skip Starbucks and swing by Silver Lake Coffee Co for some Banana Espresso Smooties – it will be a much more delicious experience. I promise.
