A dream come true for would-be Kosher Starbucks lovers may become reality if Starbucks goes through with plans to replace a non-kosher extra for Strawberries & Crème Frappuccino and other products that contain cochineal extracts.

The extract for the drinks come from insects, which also bother veggies, and the company is planning to use a vegetarian-based extract as a substitute.
