Starbucks stop using Beetle Juice!

Starbucks is to stop using colouring made from crushed beetles as it bows to pressure from vegetarian customers. The coffee giant has been using the colouring derived from cochineal insects in its strawberry frappuccinos and smoothies as deserts including the raspberry swirl cake.

However following an online campaign asking for the ingredient to be removed, it will be replaced with lycopene, a tomato extract. 

There is some good news
