The Newest Oreos Are Filled With Cream Made Out of Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee

If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if Oreos had sex with Dunkin’ Donuts . . . and Lord knows I have . . . here’s your answer, pervert.

The newest limited edition flavor of Oreos is . . . Dunkin’ Donuts Mocha.  The cookies are made up of two chocolate cookies with a cream that tastes like Dunkin’ Donuts coffee.

They’re going to hit stores this summer.

Starbucks’s New “Unicorn Frappuccino” Just Went on Sale

There have been rumors going around that Starbucks was working on something called a “Unicorn Frappuccino.”  And those rumors turned out to be true.

From today through Sunday, Starbucks is selling a Unicorn Frappuccino.  It’s a pink and blue monster that’s made by blending cream, mango syrup, and a pink powder . . . and then layering it with a sour blue drizzle.

But I’m guessing the taste is FAR less important than its Instagram worthiness . . . and on THAT metric, it might be Starbucks’ best limited edition flavor ever.

CEO of Huntsman Cancer Institute fired

Emotions ran high and mouths shouted loudly as protesters gathered on the University of Utah campus Tuesday to voice their anger after the University announced it had fired a longstanding healthcare executive.

CEO and Director of the Huntsman Cancer Institute Doctor Mary Beckerle was notified via email Monday afternoon that she had been fired. The move came after 11 years of service at the helm.

“What concerns me is that she didn’t learn about the termination until she got the email,” said Susan Sheehan, President and Chief Operating Officer at the Huntsman Cancer Foundation. “That seems like a very ungracious way to appreciate a person’s contributions to an institution that she’s served so well.”

Sheehan credits Beckerle with turning the Cancer Center into one of the top centers in the country, and questions the University’s motivation to let her go.

“She has not had a performance evaluation that would have indicated that there was a concern,” said Sheehan.

Making things even more hostile is the fact that Sheehan says the Huntsman family and Jon Huntsman Sr. was never consulted or given a heads-up.

“I would have expected as a courtesy and out of respect that that would have happened,” Sheehan added “I’m very disappointed.”

The University of Utah did not respond to calls from FOX13 inquiring why they made the decision, nor did the Huntsman family return calls. But professors and staff at the Cancer Institute who gathered to protest the decision Tuesday said that Huntsman Sr. gathered staffers together to explain he didn’t approve of the decision.

“He was surprised that he was not consulted on the decision,” said U of U professor Bruce Edgar, who heard Huntsman Sr. share his thoughts. “He’s not in support of it. He’s a strong supporter of Beckerle.”

Edgar said that professors and staffers at the Cancer Institute plan to gather Wednesday at noon for a protest March from the Huntsman Cancer Institute down to President’s Circle at the University of Utah.
