Starbucks is listening to the consumer push for more natural foods.
By using an extract made from the ground-up bodies of insects.
This fact has gone viral after a vegan barista who works for Starbucks in the U.S. sent a picture of the ingredient list for their strawberries-and-cream Frappuccino to a vegetarian blog earlier this month.
Any vegans or vegetarians care to comment on this? Would you drink a beverage with the cochineal extract?
Was it ethical of Starbucks not to notify consumers?
