You heard it here first. Coffee giant, Starbucks, is murdering poor, defenseless polar bear cookies in order to boost sales of its Frosted Snowman cookies. It must be true because Boston’s own Fox 25 has the story, “Polar bear cookies at Starbucks cause controversy“.
The post originated on a Reddit thread and has since spread across social media. The accompanying Imgur post has been viewed over 3 million times.
The photo of the cookie resurfaced last week, resulting in numerous social media posts.
Maybe it wasn’t here first, but we copied it from somebody who had it before we did. Now they probably copied it from someone else too, but, hell, that’s the sorry state of publishing in the age of the internet.
