OMG, Starbucks Has Avocado Spread Now

Starbucks is really gunning for the title of Most Basic Chain Ever—the coffee giant just released an organic avocado spread to stores nationwide today, so you no longer have to choose between Instagramming your avocado toast (or bagel, as Starbucks doesn't have toast) or your Frappuccino. Talk about one stop shopping!

The spread contains organic Hass avocados, sea salt, onion, garlic, jalapeño pepper and lime juice. Basically it’s pre-packaged guacamole. But unlike other avocado options, the spread is only $0.95, which beats the $10+ charge for avocado toast at any hipster brunch spot. It’s 90 calories, contains 1 gram of protein and no sugar. While it's been available in select stores since last Fall, it is now available nationwide.

Its bright green color has received mixed reviews.

But overall social media response appears positive.

The spread accompanies other new menu items, like vegan bagels and gluten-free breakfast sandwiches, to celebrate “the arrival of spring” with “new food items to fuel the warmer days ahead." It also joins the seasonal Spring-inspired cup designs in honor of the season.
