US woman vows to eat and drink only Starbucks items for 1yr

Starbucks

A woman from Seattle has sworn that she will eat and drink only Starbucks for 12 straight months as her New Year resolution.

Beautiful Existence, who is a wife, mother and veteran of the Year-Long Challenge, is consuming only Starbucks' products, which can now include Tazo Tea and Evolution Fresh, as the coffee giant recently acquired them.

She sees it as her duty as a "spoiled" American to test her mettle in such a way, ABC News reported.

Not only is her goal to call attention to the plight of Panini-free people, she's also trying to make a feminist statement.

Jared Fogle shot to fame after losing 245 pounds in one year by eating only Subway products. And Morgan Spurlock, whom. Existence calls "Mr. McDonalds" in her blog, changed the way the world views fast food with his documentary "Supersize Me."

But where, Existence laments, "are all the women challenging themselves in the world? Where are the effects being shown on a woman's culture? A woman's family and children? A woman's diet, weight, fashion, checkbook, community and world through challenges? Where is her voice on how an international company is directly or indirectly impacting everything from her waistline to her bottom line and every other woman's, man's, child's, societies and planets world with their presence?"

She also wanted to focus on businesses and organizations that are based in the Pacific Northwest.

Starbucks, for its part, is "honoured" by the whole thing.
