On a recent evening, M. and I walked into a Starbucks, close to closing time. The store still had a few patrons lounging about, but the food display counters were nearly empty.
The ovens had gone to bed. The coffee machines were groaning. But we were awake and we were famished. We had to eat, if only a bite. So, we tried a “cake pop” each, a new confection that’s a marriage of Popsicle and cake.
They make a better mobile food than the cupcake, with a potential to surpass the cupcake in its insane popularity.
