Well that's hardly fair...

Yesterday, upon caving into a 3pm treat craving I wandered over to Starbucks with Robyn for a coffee. I only took enough money for my non-fat vanilla latte... and THANK GOD. While we were waiting in the lineup, I looked into the food case and saw this:

















STARBUCKS MAKES CUPCAKES NOW??? WHAT IN THE HECK???


That's just mean. It's already hard enough for me to justify my lattes... and then NOT buy a lowfat vegan brownie while I'm at it. (But at least with that one, I feel slightly better due to the lowfat and vegan business.) I felt so guilty about getting those that I moved on to the cranberry chocolate soy protein bars, because I was all, "What? I NEED PROTEIN."

But cupcakes? There's no way I'll be able to justify that one, is there? How about, "I eat my feelings." or "I suffer from a complete lack of self control."? Does that work? It's just 100% bad for me.

But they look so pretty. I will probably end up trying one. FRIG!

Damn you, Starbucks! DAMN YOU

I saw those too... They do look wonderful but why don't you justify NOT haveing them by the ammount of MONEY they cost? I'm pretty sure they cost more than a box of cake mix and some frosting...or you could pretend chocolate is poo.

Thanks for the tips, sister!

"Pretend chocolate is poo"? You are such a nerd.

BUT... that does remind me of the time I told DeeDee that she was the colour of turds and you got mad at me. That was pretty funny, huh?

Oh, memories...

Sarah! Stop! I had their cupcakes last year when they were in limited release and they were totally "meh". Nothing exciting, nothing especially delicious, nothing to write on my blog about. As pretty as these look, they are probably not as tasty. So, don't fret...you're probably not missing out.

Also "I eat my feelings"...hilarious!

I almost bought a vanilla cupcake from there today, after seeing their vegan brownies and having a small inner fit. But then I decided there's no way they can compare to Cupcakes bakery, or to mine. I also remembered that I plan to bake cupcakes for Kelly's parents soon, and surely there will be leftovers.
