We were disgusted to learn that the Starbucks Strawberries and Creme frappuccino contains bugs! Yuck! While Starbucks has thankfully announced that they are going to phase out the beetle usage, in favor of tomato-derived lycopene extract, it was a great reminder to us that sometimes it is just better to make treats yourself so that you can control what goes into them. It is also a great way to save some shekels because that weekly Starbucks habit can add up!
