Starbucks Improving Their Pastry Offerings!

Filed under: Etc.Business BlitzFood

Starbucks Bakery

So, how does Starbucks improve their pasty offerings?

Hire a better baker for their locations? Or a baker at all??

Nope! They drop $100 million in cash to buy an entire small bakery chain.

It's true: baked goods and pastries from La Boulange will start replacing its current lineup early next year.

There are also plans to make the San Francisco-area bakery into a national presence in the years ahead — so look out for twice as many places to inundate your everyday lives!

Ha!

Interestingly enough, a third of the purchases in its U.S. locations now include a food item. So this is probably a good move on their part!

Does this mean they'll be going after Panera now??

Kim Kardashian's IMDB Profile Gets Mean Makeover!

Filed under: Silly!Etc.Kim Kardashian

kim-kardashian-imdb.jpg

As Michelle Tanner would fervently exclaim: How rude!

IMDB staff writer Jon C. Hopwood was tasked with tweaking Kim Kardashian's profile, and TWEAK he did… in a SUPER unflattering way!

Hopwood bashed Kimmy for being "a new breed of cat whose celebrity comes from the release of a sex tape and the canny exploitation of the resulting publicity…," among MANY other accusations.

Lovely. As you might've guessed, we do not condone Hopwood's actions. Negativity is never becoming.

The colorful bio has since been taken down, but TADA! A savvy someone took screenshots which we have for your curious pleasure. The pics ARE small, so zooming would be appropriate…

Check out one main excerpt (above), but for the FULL force of Kimmy's re-imagined bio, click …AFTER THE JUMP!

Far East Movement are a lucky bunch of guys!

They got to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at a recent Dodgers game at Dodger Stadium.

The guys also snapped a picture with Matt Kemp, the Dodgers' pitcher. We really like their chains. Kind of a Flavor Flav feel.

And near the bottom right you can spot

Starbucks Opens First Healthy Juice Shop

Filed under: FoodVeganVegetarian

Evolution Fresh

The evolution has begun. For Starbucks, at least.

The popular chain has opened their first business venture that doesn't revolve around coffee. Evolution Fresh is a juice shop that caters to customers seeking products that will help them live a healthier lifestyle, as the president of Starbucks Channel Development said:

"Our customers are looking for a healthier lifestyle. Juice and nutrition is no longer a fad. It's a full-blown trend."

According to sources, the first shop has opened near Seattle in Bellevue, Washington and the menu features a variety of fresh squeezed juices, along with vegan and vegetarian food selections.

As you'll notice in the picture above, the shop has very little to do with Starbucks. In fact, the only mention of the biggest brand in coffee is a menu offering of Starbucks Pike Place Roast for $1.95. Despite the fact that Evolution Fresh will always be the younger sibling of Starbucks in our mind, the company believes their new health and wellness chain is "a brand concept that stands on its own."

One thing this place does have in common with the familiar coffee franchise is the signature price. One hand-crafted juice will cost your wallet $7.99. Will U give Starbucks' new juice a shot?

Starbucks Is Boosting Prices!!!

Filed under: Food

Starbucks prices increase

Stupid inflation.

Starbucks has announced it will be raising prices by an average of 1% on Tuesday in the Northeast and Sunbelt regions of the U.S. because coffee, milk and fuel could cut into profits this year.

Cities like New York, Boston, Washington DC, Atlanta, Dallas and Albuquerque can expect prices for 12-ounce "tall" brewed coffees and latte drinks to go up by 10 cents.

We don't think that is a deal breaker for most people. However, we know somebody, somewhere is pretty pissed right now.

Walmart May Or May Not Become A Major Healthcare Provider

Filed under: Business BlitzHealth

Walmart healthcare

Walmart is making MIGHT be making moves to become a major healthcare provider!

Sources reported that the largest retailer in the U.S. sent out a request for potential partners last month that would help the chain become "the largest provider of primary care services in the nation." According to the document from the company:

"Walmart intends to build a national, integrated, low-cost primary care healthcare platform that will provide preventative and chronic care services that are currently out of reach for millions of Americans. Walmart intends to do this in an affordable and accessible way while maintaining or improving quality outcomes. Walmart seeks partners who have a care model or capability that can help dramatically drive down the cost of care, while maintaining or improving quality on a national level."

Shoppers could have expected services including simple physicals, urine tests, and vaccinations, but now we're not so sure.

Since the story broke, Walmart is DENYING their healthcare expansion plans and have called the document that outlines their plans "overwritten and incorrect."

In a recent statement, the senior vice president & president of Walmart U.S. health & wellness said, "We are not building a national, integrated, low-cost primary care health care platform."

Hmm…guess we'll have to wait and see what Walmart has up their sleeve!
