Okay people, I’m with you. I understand the day is long, and we all need our pick-me-ups. But seriously? Frosting shots? FROSTING SHOTS? For every step we seem to take in the right direction, someone comes up with an idea that send us back three.
My words are failing me. They’re stuck in my brain. I’ve rewritten this second paragraph three times now. Obviously the cupcake bakeries are giving people what they want. And obviously, people are willing to pay $1.50 for a shotglass full of buttercream frosting. But, maybe, in this case, we SHOULDN’T be giving the people what they want.
All this talk of healthier eating, saving money because of the current state of economics, and the apocryphal shuttering of Starbucks across the country would leave one to believe that maybe $1.50 for FROSTING isn’t the best economical decision right now. And it’s definitely not the healthiest. Honestly, what will this do for a person? It’ll give them a cheap sugar high, only cause them to crash harder, forcing them to find something ELSE to keep them awake until the 5 o’clock hour.
Do people hate the taste of tea or coffee that much? Is the idea of walking around your office for 2 minutes to trying? Why are people willing to pay $1.50 for FROSTING?! Please, people of my country, quit making us look like bigger gluttons than we already are.
And the bakeries selling this? Shame on you for charging $1.00 or more for a shot glass full of frosting. That’s worth maybe 25 cents. MAYBE.
