Yay!!!! Wait, there were BUGS in their drinks?!?!?!

Last month, news broke that Starbucks' Strawberry and Creme Frappucino wasn't vegan, even with soy milk because of its secret ingredient.

If you're hoping it's strawberries….sadly it's crushed BEETLES!

It all started when a vegan employee announced that the beetle extract as an ingredient, and Starbucks has come out and defended the choice because of their "all-natural" ingredients.

Beetles may be TOOOO natural for folks, as petitions have been signed and the coffee chain has agreed to seek other options.

We're glad to see Starbucks listening to the people

Let's just hope that secret menu doesn't have any secrets like this one!

Chili Chocolates May Help You Burn Calories

Um, yes please!

An extract from dry chili peppers known as dihydrocapsiate has been found to speed up the body’s metabolism. It’s already sold as a diet supplement in the US and Japan, but Britain may start using it in food.

A Japanese food company has submitted a request to the Food Standards Agency to start putting the chemical in chocolates and other foods.

This sounds too good to be true — but if it is true we totes want some chili chocolates!!
