Whoever came up with the idea of selling oatmeal at fast food places as a genius. And yes, Starbucks is fast food.
What’s the food cost for a 1/2 cup of oats and some flavoring? Like 4 cents. I’ll bet the cup they serve it in costs as much as the food.
I don’t understand why you’d pay $3 for this on your way to work. You know you can grab a packet of instant oatmeal out of your pantry and bring it to work right? Microwave it in your coffee cup. It’s probably about 15 cents that way.
Paying $3 for something that takes you 30 seconds to do for 15 cents sounds like something the government would do.
