Is Starbucks Discreetly Raising Prices?

Rumor has it that Starbucks has discreetly raised the prices on select sizes of drip coffee, espresso drinks, cookies, and bacon Gouda breakfast sandwiches by 10% this past week. Thanks to the excitement surrounding the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte, you may not have noticed this change.
With this increase, Starbucks mochas and lattes (including the Pumpkin Spice Latte ) may soon cost 10¢ to 30¢ more at select locations and the bacon Gouda breakfast sandwich could range from $3.45 to $4.95 depending on your location. Additionally, Starbucks-brand cookies may increase by about 30¢ each. See the articles here and here for more information.
