Anytime Starbucks does anything, people are going to have an opinion about it. And the one time you don’t want to hear people’s opinions is when they’re hungry. There are a lot of food options at Starbucks when you think about it. Some of them are downright delicious, and others just good enough for a mid-day snack, which is why the fact that Starbucks now has an avocado spread for avocado toast has so many people excited.
Seriously, it’s kind of hard to mess up an avocado.
Avocados are delicious, simple, and also healthy. It’s a win all around. Or it should be, at least.
Because this is the world and people are sometimes the worst, there are obviously so many opinions about this poor little tub of avocado deliciousness. People are upset that it’s not ~actually~ avocado toast, because they’re not toasting up bread for your and cracking an avocado to order. But who wants to wait in that line? The spread comes in a little tub pre-wrapped so you can toss it in your bag with a bagel and get on with your life.
But that’s not all people are complaining about. The tub contains, ” fresh, organic Hass avocados, sea salt, onion, garlic, jalapeño pepper, and lime juice,” according to the company, so it’s more like guacamole than avocado. And you know how people are sticklers about their guac. Add the weird color to that and you have a proper Twitter moment. Seriously, you cannot please everyone.
Here’s a taste of what people are saying about the new snack.
We Know It’s Real At Least. Maybe.
We’re Def Eating That No Matter What, Of Course
But Let’s Call It What It Is
If you’ve already been downing this on your coffee break, that’s because it was available in some select markets previously, testing the recipe and seeing how many people liked it. It just went national this week, which means that whether you call it guac or avocado spread, people are loving it. Some people are calling the best accidental guacamole out there and that when you pair it with the toasted everything bagel — it’s absolute heaven.
For just 95 cents a tub, we might have to go sneak one and see for ourselves.
