PEPTO BISMOL ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


It was a morning of Freebies at 7th and Montana today as Our Favorite Starbucks unveiled some Bold, New Menu Items. First-up was the Strawberry Banana Vivanno™ Smoothie (pictured above) -- a healthy drink combining a whole banana, strawberry puree and Starbucks' own special blend of whey protein and fiber powder. It looks just like Pepto Bismol. "Would you like some?," asked Barista David. "No thanks," I replied, "Are you sure it's not medicine?" Later, Manager Extraordinaire Gabe made the rounds with free samples of a new Cinnamon Scone. I declined, but Neighbor John readily accepted. "How do you like it?," asked Gabe. "It's OK," said John, and then, after Gabe walked away, he added, "It's dry and has a Very Disconcerting, Chemical Aftertaste." Not to worry, John, I know where you can get some Pepto Bismol ...!

I agree with Ken!

A scone with a chemical aftertaste? No thanks.

I was wondering what it was, when I visited Starbuks today. However, they dressed ours up with whip cream.

It sounds very healthy and might be tasty, but if it's really the color of Pepto, who could get past THAT? Bleah!

I still say they should make tuna smoothies!

Yick! I love scones but not those with chemical aftertastes!
