The news said that Starbucks would be starting to offer value meal already by the 3rd day of March. Their sales have seen a big drop and I guess, this is their way of catching up. After all, even if they are famous, if the people who buy from them are broke, there is nothing they could do. So now, they are diving into the value meal era wherein they could tap on the budget-minded people market. I am not a Starbucks fan but I have tried some of the drinks in their menu. Mostly the chocolate-based ones since I am not a coffee drinker. Knowing that they would lower their prices is a good one. Though, I still won't be frequenting Starbucks coz I'd rather save the money that I would use for buying a latte. :)

They really have to do that in order to survive. I myself am a tea lover, and when thinking about Starbucks, what i like to order was their Passion Tea. So if they would just serve plainly beverages and some pastries, they would not target some customers that hunger for a meal. Good news that at least they are extending their offers to customer.

I am not sure yet what they would serve as a value meal. The news just said that they would start offering "value meals". What is in that value meal is not clear yet.

This is a good idea. I love the peppermint mocha twist and caramel frappicinos so much - that I need at least 2 a week. I wonder what kind of food they would include in their "value meals" - like a pastry product? Or do they actually serve food (and I wasn't aware of it until now?)

I am not a coffee drinker so I have never really fallen into that whole scene. But, I will admit to getting an occassional hot chocolate on a cold winter's day. But what I'm curious about is what does Starbucks constitute as a meal? I know they have a small selection of baked goods, scones, muffins, cookies, but has some thing drastically chaged that they can now offer a meal? Or are they considering coffee and a muffin a meal?

Yeah, I guess so. For most of their customers anyway, that's what a breakfast is. I don't think I could last for even an hour with a muffin and a coffee. But it might be the ones they are offering since those are the only things on their regular menu.
