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?
The We Can’t Stop singer interviewed with Rolling Stone magazine for their July 4th issue, and revealed her fairly liberal thoughts on drugs and alcohol.
Given her stoner reputation, we’re not totally surprised. Though, when asked to clarify her penchant for weed, she said:
"You can't ask someone that and expect them to say yes... I did a song with Snoop Dogg called 'Ashtrays and Heartbreaks,' so people can put it together for themselves."
That sounds fairly straightforward to us. Mileybird then went ahead to state that she thinks there are things much, much worse than a little bit of the green stuff:
"I think alcohol is way more dangerous than marijuana -- people can be mad at me for saying that, but I don't care... I've seen a lot of people spiral down with alcohol, but I've never seen that happen with weed."
"As long as it isn't illegal, there are far more dangerous things. And it's legal in the state of California. So I'm happy to live in California, a place where you can be whoever you want to be."
Well, Miley, marijuana isn’t exactly legal in California unless you have a prescription, so we’re not entirely sure what you mean. But, okay...
As for her transition from Disney teen idol to mature pop star, she said:
