Say goodbye to these popular menu items at Starbucks

By Angeli Kakade, Buzz60

Starbucks is putting a halt on some of its menu items. Don't worry, you'll still be able to get your morning caramel macchiato, but you'll have to say goodbye to wine and beer.

Starbucks announced plans to end its Evening program, which sold tapas like food, wine and beer to customers in 400 Starbucks locations across the country.

The company also plans on increasing their number of reserve stores, which are stores smaller than a roastery but larger than a traditional store. Reserve stores will feature beans roasting on site as well as pricier coffee. And just when people were starting to get used to the reality of a $5 cup of coffee!
