Starbucks wants you to enjoy "fruits and vegatables"

One of the images that Starbucks is using to promote the Evolution Fresh juice bar has a sign that reads "Most fruits and "vegtables" are: fat and cholesterol free." 

Yes, that big sign spells "vegetables" incorrectly.

Not a big deal, but after all the fuss about Starbucks Evolution Fresh juice bar and the healthy smoothies and premium juices, and that the company sent press materials to media outlets everywhere, it's a little embarrassing.

The sign is now gone and a new sign reads: "Bananas are loaded with potassium — a natural electrolyte." 

Starbucks has had a problem with spelling before.
For over a year Starbucks told customers it was offering “complementary” (that's when you say nice things, you know, a complement) Wi-Fi — the correct spelling is "complimentary."

But what do we know? We misspell words all the time.
