Starbucks has a solid history of working
with PETA to reduce suffering for animals used for food and to offer its
customers cruelty-free options. So when we heard that the nation’s premier
coffee chain had begun using
beetle juice to color its Strawberries
and Crème Vegan Frappuccinos, we knew something was amiss.
We went straight to the source. True to
form, Starbucks committed to making the switch back to a plant-based colorant.
It will soon be Starbucks vegan strawberry
Frapps all ’round at PETA headquarters in celebration of the settling of the Frappaccino
flap by what PETA calls “a corporation with a conscience.” We
appreciate that Starbucks clearly learned from its error, and since no one,
vegetarian or not, wants beetle juice in their Frapp, we are glad that everyone
will soon be able to celebrate the fact that it’s gone for good.
I’ll drink (a Strawberries and Crème
Vegan Frappuccino) to that.
