Sweet celebration as Starbucks turns 40

In General, Shopping on 10 March, 2011 at 1:37 pm

Need an afternoon jolt?

Head to the nearest Starbucks where they are celebrating their 40th birthday by giving away free Starbucks Petite treats with your afternoon coffee (or tea) from 2 to 5 p.m. on March 10, 11 & 12. Starbucks Petites are a new global food platform the company is launching with eight delicious treats perfectly sized for an afternoon snack. Choose from Red Velvet Whoopie Pies (for the vamps?), Sweet Squares (Lemon and Salty Caramel), Mini cupcakes (Carrot Cake and Peanut Putter) and Cake Pops (Tiramisu, Rocky Road and, of course, Birthday Cake!).

Starbucks is celebrating 40 years of great coffee, but we are also honoring four decades of creating individual moments of connection among our valued customers and store partners, and in the neighborhoods where we do business,” said Howard Schultz, chairman, president and CEO. “As we continue to connect with more customers around the world in innovative ways, our brand is also evolving to address the changing global market. Our new logo, which customers will see in stores […] reflects this evolution by honoring our deep coffee heritage while allowing us to grow in exciting new ways.”
