Your Strawberries & Creme frappuchino will no longer feature a splash of bug - enough customers didn't want to slurp crushed cochineal insects that Starbucks Corp. is ditching the red dye used in their making. The Mexican and South American tropical creepy-crawlies were dried and then processed into a coloring product that gave some Starbucks goods - including strawberry banana smoothies, raspberry swirl cakes, birthday cake pops, mini doughnuts with pink icing and red velvet whoopee pie - their rosy hue. But it wasn't vegan.

Starbucks this week launched its new Verismo single-cup machine for the coffee-buzzed public as a chain known for its cafes continues to expand into new business venues. Now selling exclusively on Verismo.com, the high-pressure technology uses pods of real milk to make espressos, lattes and regular brewed coffee. In early October, the products will hit many Starbucks retail stores and specialty retailers such as Williams-Sonoma. Competitors likely aren't pleased. The one-cup market is the fastest-growing segment of the coffee market, according to Jeff Hansberry, Starbucks' president of channel development.

Disney this summer will truly become the happiest place on Earth for Starbucks devotees, who will no longer have to suffer caffeine withdrawal when they visit some of the mouse-eared amusement parks. In June, the first of six Starbucks cafes will open at Anaheim's Disney California Adventure in the park's Fiddle, Fifer & Practical Café on Buena Vista Street. In keeping with the café's 1920's Los Angeles vibe, Starbucks baristas will be clad in appropriate vintage attire.
