Starbucks mud pie bar

Boy talk about tailor-made for this blog: Starbucks Mud Pie ice cream bar. How can you lose w/ coffee + ice cream (not to mention sbux). itsa choc cookie w/ coffee ice cream coated in choc. But really it's just sad, in that it embodies the inevitable surrender to the American appetite. Cuz Starbucks did try a more moderate approach w/ its clever Frappuccino bar, like a coffee version of a fudgesicle and much leaner than the 350 cals this has. But unfortunately the demand is for more-more-more in ice cream prods. As an aside, these ice-cream-on-cookie things are a hot trend, w/ similar items by Dove, Nestle/Toll House, Kemp’s, as well as a big expansion of the Klondike line

note slight discrepancy between bar on box as opposed to real life

I've been looking for these all over the place and haven't found a single box. You'd think sbux seattle headquarters would drop some down this way, considering this place's appetite for ice cream and proximity to said H.Q.

hmf. i guess they're not "news" then. i guess i've completely wasted the last TWO HOURS writing about a product that someone already knows about. i guess i can just remove this blog item altogether. i guess i can consider doing something else with my time that makes an actual contribution to society. and here i thought i was offering News about coffee drinks, ice cream, and restaurants in dallas.

(my word verification begins with tg! tgheqpsb. yay)

Somebody tipped me off to them. I won't say who, but I will say that they know their shit. In any case, they're still new here. So new that I can't get one. They're like PRE-new.

Well even though it says "Starbucks" on the package, it is not, in fact, made in seattle. guess what: not all starbucks products are manufactured in seattle! these bars, like all of Starbucks' ice cream products, are actually made by Dreyers. altho i'm sure you knew that, too

tg: You mean they don't grow their coffee beans in Seattle? I thought the white on top of Mount Rainier was foaming milk.

Yes, it's true. I saved a small town yesterday from certain economic disaster. Some say that Aberdeen, WA isn't worth saving. That there's nothing worthwhile there. But I don't think so. I CARE.

I wish everybody would follow my example. All it takes is a red carpet, an armada of black SUV's, a good pair of shoes, and some sunglasses. It's easy and doesn't take Super Powers (though, for a small payment of a few thousand dollars, I can arrange for you to have some). Now this piss-poor town that had nothing good to brag about, except for somebody named Kurt Cobain, will FLOURISH and be a jewel on the coast, an example of what every town should be. People will have food and jobs and nicely repaired mobile homes all because of me.

I'm sorry for all the children who were crushed in the throng. But you should have left them at home like I did. Again, take your example from me.

Well, I bet SEATTLE is awash in mud pies. I bet people trip on them on their way to work.

Mt. Rainier is, in fact, composed of the choc granules that appear in the Java Chip Frappucino®. Mt. Saint Helens is the source of foam.

Come on, Spot. You know you're not in the witness protection program. You've joined my pack of hunting dogs.

Hey Spot... I was referring to the wall, not you or your Hokey Pokey owner.

That's what I'm sayin. It may look like I've disappeared and that's what the WH would like you to believe (go ahead, click on my name for the official statement as to my whereabouts), but I promise you, I haven't gone anywhere. Meanwhile, can someone get that dickhead cheney off my tail?

Spot:

No need to worry about anyone being on your tail. We'll take care of that tail a little later this morning. Are you allergic to any pain relievers?
