Birthday-frap

(PCM) We need this flavor of Starbucks frappuccino in our lives right now!  To celebrate their 20th anniversary, Starbucks has unveiled the “Birthday Cake Frappuccino” and it is everything you could dream it would be.

The beverage is described as a creamy blend of vanilla bean and hazelnut, topped with special raspberry-infused whipped topping”. It sounds absolutely delectable.  Too bad this delightful dessert frappuccino is only going to be offered for a limited time.

It is set to roll out to all stores today (March 26) and only stick around until March 30, so you better get in line with us and snag one of these quick!

If you miss your chance to grab one of the special “Birthday Cake Frappuccino’s” don’t fret!  A little research online provided us with the recipe for a “Cake Batter Frappuccino” from the Starbucks secret menu.

The recipe is:
Order a vanilla bean frappuccino and add hazelnut syrup (1 pump tall, 1.5 pumps grande and 2 pumps venti). Also, if you are fan of the Starbucks cakepops you could also ask the barista if they are able and willing to blend one in with your drink.

Devoted Uncle Dresses As A Princess To Take His Niece To See “Cinderella”

Cinderella-Uncle1

(PCM) Showing some serious devotion as an uncle 26-year old Jesse Nagy donned a princess costume to take his 4-year old niece Isabella to see the movie “Cinderella”.

Nagy truly made it an incredible night out for his young niece. He says that the reason he wore the princess costume was due to the fact that his niece, who normally runs all around the house wearing various princess costumes was suddenly embarrassed to wear a princess costume to the movie theater when he made the suggestion.

In order to make her feel better about wearing the costume, Nagy decided that he would wear one as well, that way they could both be princesses. Nagy borrowed an old prom dress from a family friend and the two “princesses” made their way to the theater to enjoy “Cinderella”.

A ticket taker at the theater who was quite taken with Nagy and Isabella’s costumes snapped a photo of the pair and posted it online. Nagy claims that halfway through the film his phone began to go off like crazy as his family and friends began alerting him that the image had gone viral on both Reddit and Facebook.

It has received well over 4,000 upvotes and over 1,000 comments as well!

Taco Bell Rolls Out The New Biscuit Taco

Biscuit-taco

(PCM) Always trying to stay ahead of the competitors in the fast food breakfast war, Taco Bell has made the decision to ditch the Waffle Taco and replace it with the all-new Biscuit Taco.

Taco Bell’s new Biscuit Taco can be stuffed with your choice of sausage, eggs, bacon, cheese and … wait for it … even deep-fried chicken with either jalapeno honey sauce or country gravy. The new Biscuit Taco’s are set to make their official debut at Taco Bell on March 26th.

McDonald’s is still currently holding on to the number one spot in fast food breakfast stops and twenty-five percent of the companies sales come from breakfast items. Taco Bell has been offering up breakfast choices for awhile now, but they only add up to about six percent of the companies overall sale. They are hoping that the roll out of the new Biscuit Taco will help that number rise to at least twenty percent.

They also hope that their choices will offer breakfast customers something different and unique rather than the same old boring breakfast sandwiches. The Biscuit Tacos will be sold for $2.49 when they join other new Taco Bell menu items such as Capn’ Crunch Delights and Fritos Tacos which are set to make their debut soon!

Are you looking forward to giving the new Taco Bell Biscuit Taco a try? I know where we will be on March 26th.

Recall Alert: Amy’s Kitchen Frozen Meals Could Contain Listeria

Amys-Kitchen

(PCM) Thus far there have been no reports of any illness associated with consuming Amy’s Kitchen frozen meal, however the company has issued a voluntary recall of about 73, 897 cases of their meals which contain organic spinach that could possibly be infected with listeria.

The possibility of listeria contamination was brought to the company’s attention by one of their organic spinach suppliers who warned that the presence of listeria could be linked to the spinach from their facility.

The FDA explains that listeria infection can be deadly for young children, the weak and the elderly but healthy adults should only deal with short-term symptoms. In a statement they say “Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.”

Customers who purchased any of the affected Amy’s Kitchen frozen meals can return them to the point of purchase for an exchange or a full refund. A full list of the meals being recalled and the contact information for Amy’s Kitchen can be found in the post below:

Kat Von D Won’t Apologize For Controversial Lipstick Shade

Underage-Red

(PCM) Beauty retailer Sephora announced that they would be removing a shade of lipstick titled “Underage Red”, part of Kat Von D’s exclusive collection, from their stores after its’ name stirred up quite a bit of controversy online.

The lipstick, which is bold red in color, has been part of Kat Von D’s Seophora collection and available in stores for over a year now, but it only takes one person to become offended to start the chain reaction of online critiques of the name, Kat Von D and Sephora as well.

However, Kat Von D is standing behind the lipstick’s name and is refusing to apologize. She posted the following on her Facebook page to address the controversy:

She says that she finds the comments by others to be both “inaccurate and appalling” and will not apologize nor pull the lipstick from her collection, despite Sephora’s decision to stop selling it in their stores.
This is not the first time that Kat Von D’s shade names for her make-up collection drew in criticism, as back in 2012, she had a shade named Celebutard that created a bit of a backlash.

T.J. Maxx Removes Controversial T-Shirt From Stores

Hang-Loose1

(PCM) How this particular t-shirt even made it on the racks in the first place is beyond our comprehension, but sure enough, T.J. Maxx was selling a t-shirt that featured a picture of a noose along with the phrase “Hang Loose”.

T.J. Maxx has now pulled the offensive shirt from their racks after a customer posted an image of the shirt on social media and it created a firestorm of negative comments toward the company. Tavik, the company that manufactured the shirt in question are a beachwear company, hence the surfing terminology “Hang Loose”, but to throw in an image of a noose on the shirt, they are just asking for trouble.

Many feel that the shirt is in some ways glorifying the horrific acts of both lynching and suicide. A PR rep for Tavik released a statement saying that the company now regrets the design and they sincerely apologize to anyone who may have been offended. The statement goes on to say that the item was released without going through proper protocols and is not related to anything other than surfing.

T.J. Maxx also issued an apology statement out to customers and claim that they mistakenly bought a few hundred units of the product and that their product review process somehow overlooked the item. According to CNN.com, there have also been steps put in place to be sure that the item is not sold elsewhere, as Tavik claims that all remaining units of that particular shirt design have been destroyed.
