In the category of "Do we really need this?" comes from Starbucks.
The company is testing their new Dark Barrell Latte which is a coffee that tastes like beer. One customer described it like this: "The dark barrel latte at Starbucks literally tastes like drinking a Guinness in the early morning...So yuck." The new beverage could be a savvy way to "bridge the gap" between morning and evening crowds said one magazine food/drink writer.
This sounds just weird. Coffee is coffee and beer is beer. Next thing you know the evening crowds will be getting beer that tastes like coffee. Oh wait. We already have this. We're all mixed up.
