News: Starbucks - New Starbucks Petites

Along with the new logo and a new drink, Starbucks is celebrating their 40th anniversary with the introduction of Starbucks Petites, mini-desserts available in stores at a retail price of $1.50 each.

In all, Starbucks has eight new Petites for customers to exhibit portion control on (if they so choose):
  • Birthday Cake Cake Pops - vanilla cake and icing, dipped in a pink chocolaty coating with white sprinkles
  • Carrot Cake Mini Cupcake (redundant no?) - spiced carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.
  • Lemon Sweet Square - lemon curd on a butter shortbread base, drizzled with white icing.
  • Peanut Butter Mini Cupcake - a chocolate cupcake with peanut butter frosting and a mini peanut butter cup atop.
  • Red Velvet Whoopie Pies - two small red velvet cakes discs sandwiching a cream cheese frosting filling.
  • Rocky Road Cake Pops - chocolate cake and icing dipped in a dark chocolaty coating, sprinkled with mini marshmallows and roasted almonds (sounds like candy)
  • Salty Caramel Sweet Square - salted caramel and chocolate filling on top of a layer of crisp pretzels and pecans which is in turn is on top of a butter shortbread crust
  • Tiramisu Cake Pops - vanilla cake and coffee with vanilla icing, dipped in a mocha flavored chocolaty coating, with a chocolate coffee bean.
Each Petite clocks in at less than 200 calories and Starbucks is running a promotion at participating store from March 10th to 12th, from 2pm to 5pm where customers can nab a free Petite with the purchase of any handcrafted beverage (i.e. which I take to mean something they actually have to make).
