Dear Starbucks,

Just so you know (and TBH, I’m sure you do), you have been on fire this past year and a half. First, you introduced the Chestnut Praline latte and made our morning coffee trip feel like an old-timey holiday movie set in a snowy log cabin. Then, you carted out the Tiramisu Latte which tasted exactly like Tiramisu. A few months later, you brought in the limited-edition Birthday Cake Frap, which was basically unadulterated happiness in a cup. And THEN, just this week, you released the S’mores Frap into the world, additionally throwing a cookie straw into the mix, because why not?

So, don’t think your latest culinary gesture (albeit subtle) has gone unnoticed. I was at one of your locations this morning where I noticed a brand new kind of cookie behind the glass pastry case. It wasn’t just any regular ‘ole cookie, either. It was a cookie in the shape of a Frappuccino. It looked very self-aware and it also looked very tasty.

And better yet, Cosmopolitan says these cookie Fraps only cost $2.25. I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming a sweet dream about cookies in the shape of coffee beverages.While they taste more like crumbly sugar than a coffee shake, I am totally OK with this.

So, bravo, Starbucks! You have introduced me to another delicious thing I can eat, and what more could a human person want? (Hint: nothing).

Yours truly, Gina
