And they look delicious!
In honor of the coffee company's 40th anniversary, Starbucks has introduced two new items on the menu.
Starting today, the Cocoa Cappuccino and Starbucks Petite (pictured above) will be available to purchase in their shops.
The Cocoa Cappuccino combines fresh espresso, bittersweet mocha sauce, steamed milk and foam, and is topped with a mocha drizzle.
The Petites are small sweets including Cake Pops (available in Birthday Cake, Rocky Road and Tiramisu flavors), Red Velvet Whoopie Pies, Mini Cupcakes (Carrot Cake and Peanut Butter) and Sweet Squares (Lemon and Salty Caramel).
Mmm…so tempting. We might just have to give in and try
a couple one…be strong…just one.

A child-nutrition bill championed by Michelle Obama would give the government power to limit school bake sales and other activities involving sweets that replace healthier meals in the cafeteria.
Many are saying that this is type of activity isn’t in the jurisdiction of the federal government — most notably Sarah Palin and republicans.
"This could be a real train wreck for school districts," said Lucy Gettman, of the National School Boards Association. "The federal government should not be in the business of regulating this kind of activity at the local level."
The legislation would apply to all foods sold in schools during class hours, including at fund-raisers.
While this is not an ideal bill (parents giving their kids the guidance to make healthy decisions would be a better option), it’s clear that there’s a huge obesity problem in the US, and steps like this will help curb this deadly trend.
