Starbucks is known for making a splash whenever it starts selling new items — from ice cream and beer to special-flavored coffees — and this latest menu addition is no different. Starbucks is now hawking organic avocado spread so customers can spread some green onto their bagels, panini and breakfast sandwiches.
The problem (and the reason people are weirded out instead of uniformly excited): The stuff isn't just green, but really green — greener-than-avocados-in-nature green; Kermit the frog eating green beans while getting a piggyback ride from Shrek green — and everyone's split on whether it's the best thing ever or a total nightmare.
There's the bad:

Regardless of how you feel about Starbucks' new spread, there is some good news. Despite the alien-looking color, it's definitely made from real avocado.

Will you eat the new Starbucks avocado spread or would you rather just buy an avocado to mash onto your bagels and toast yourself? I think I'll have to taste before judging (after all, fans of the spread do seem pretty into it)...
