Yesterday I was in Starbucks getting a Refresh Peppermint Tea (I'm not a coffee or espresso fan, but I wanted something warm on a cold day). While I was in line waiting to order, I noticed the most ironic advertisement. Right there behind the counter on the Coffee of the Day sign was the following statement: "Try our new SKINNY lattes and have it with our warm cinnamon swirl muffin!"
Now, doesn't that seem odd? You're trying to save calories by choosing a skinny latte made with skim milk, but then you negate all those saved calories with a sugary, trans fat rich cinnamon bun??? Are you serious? Now, I'm not a fan of these skinny drinks anyways as there's nothing wrong with some dairy fat to keep you more satiated. But, digging into a bun is just odd. It's like going into McDonalds and ordering a Diet Coke with a Mandarin Orange Chicken Salad and getting a side of large French fries! Hello!
