FOOD FOR THOUGHT AT 7TH AND MONTANA ...!

        

Stomachs were turning at 7th and Montana this morning as Starbucks introduced the latest in a new series of menu items, Pasta Salad with Chicken, by handing out "Free Samples" at 7:00 a.m.  Earlier this week, also at 7:00 a.m., they tried passing around another crowd pleaser, Marinated Mozzarella Balls.  Take it from me, there's something frankly repulsive about the notion of eating a Marinated Mozzarella Ball out of a plastic petrie dish before you've had your morning coffee.  "I don't know why we're offering this stuff so early," said one insider.  "We're just told to put the free samples on the counter."  No doubt it's all the handiwork of a Highly Caffeinated Marketing Expert at Starbucks World Headquarters.  To this genius I offer some advice:  You might need to start replacing the cream in our coffee with Milk of Magnesia ...!

Pass the pasta. Hahaa. I guess you would barf at the things I will gladly eat for breakfast. Just this week: reheated Mexican food and cheese tortellini with a lot of garlic and pepper. Okay, I usually eat grits or cereal, but leftovers make their way to the breakfast table more often than they should. But those cheese balls are even grossing ME out! --Cin

What happened to the standard fare of muffins and danish samples at 7 am??  I thought marketing's job was to find a target audience and cater to that client...hmmm, back to the drawing board!!

Wednesday morning I had Starbucks & then fresh caught fish on a boat.  You'd probably not be too fond of that either. ~ Mary
