Starbucks Has Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cold Brew And OMG It Has Pink Foam

We've been making our way through Starbucks' seasonal specials ever since middle schoolers deemed Uggs the footwear of choice. We've seen the Unicorn Frappuccino come and go, look forward to whatever salted caramel situation makes an appearance in the fall, and creep through internet archives of the acclaimed "secret menu" like it's a full-time job. Do the baristas hate our guts every time we order something other than a medium Pike Place Roast? Sure. But there is no stopping that cute new drink from getting into our hands (and onto our Instagram feed).

Recently, Starbucks fans have been chatting it up about a Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cold Brew. It has the aesthetic of the Pink Drink and a taste much closer to "real coffee" than normal secret menu concoctions (although that's still a stretch).

Like every secret menu drink, it's best to be very specific with how you want the drink to be made so your poor barista doesn't have to do any guessing. The main components of this drink are cold brew (with two pumps of raspberry syrup, two pumps of white chocolate syrup) and cold brew foam made from strawberry puree.

To really top it all off, ask your barista to finish it with chocolate curls (or chocolate drizzle). Ta-da! A chocolate-covered strawberry, in a Starbucks cup... kinda.

No matter how close (or far) this is from an actual chocolate-covered strawberry, it sure looks pretty! Life just seems better when you're sipping your caffeine through pink foam.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
