I am a huge supporter of Starbucks and their amazing selection of coffee and coffee related products, but when news came about that they were using crushed beetles, yes, crushed beetles in their strawberry and red colored products, I almost got sick to my stomach. Don’t fret, not everyone has been drinking these beetles, just those of you who have been drinking their strawberry drinks and smoothies, eating their red velvet pies or cake pops, and snacking on their pink colored pies.
Now let’s get down to the facts. There are these exotic beetles that when frozen and crushed make a red liquid that the FDA has even approved. Starbucks, along with many other companies and manufactures including cosmetic brands, yogurt companies, and even ice cream makers, have been using this dye material for quite some time. Recently Starbucks was petitioned (thank God) by a group of Vegans and Vegetarians. Now Starbucks claims that by the end of June they will have replaced the beetle based dye in their products with a tomato based product. It’s hard to believe all of this, but it’s all too true. Now only is it gross and sickening to think about, but it’s very inhumane to take thousands, possibly millions, of beetles and just grind them up into a juice for us to enjoy at around $5 a cup at our local Starbucks. I am just glad to hear that Starbucks is doing something to change this, though it does make you wonder what is in all of the food we eat and drink, doesn’t it?
Looking for a good camera to buy as a gift for someone? We can’t help you with that, what we can do is help you find an amazing camera! It may be for you, a gift, or whatever, but this camera is quite impressive! I have used this camera for about five months now and I honestly have to admit that the quality is second to none and the video shooting is true HD meaning that it seriously looks great! I bought this camera because I needed a good camera to make YouTube videos with and it helps that it is not only a superb camera but also a very impressive video camera!
There are three colors in the 300HS version, and I went with red. When you see a red camera it is unmistakable that it is a Cannon PowerShot! The color is vibrant and the texture is perfect for holding. The only complaint that I have is my Micro SDHC memory card is sometimes not readable, but this is easily fixed by turning the camera off then back on. I am almost certain that this is due to the memory card itself and not the camera, either way it is a small price to pay for the quality that this camera outputs! Oh, and just in case you are wondering, this is the camera that many YouTubers use such as CTFxC and other prominent video bloggers (for those of you interested in making YouTube videos).
