New Flavors at Sprinkles (+ free cupcake day!)

San Diego Sugar | Green Velvet and Irish Chocolate cupcakes from Sprinkles

Green beer, the “traditional” beverage of St. Patrick’s Day has never been too appealing, but Sprinkles has a few new cupcakes I’d happily devour instead: Irish Chocolate and Green Velvet. The Irish Chocolate flavor, a Belgian dark chocolate cupcake topped with Bailey’s Irish Cream cheese frosting, is in storesĀ  until March 18. The other new addition, Green Velvet, is just for St. Patty’s Day (March 17). The chocolate cupcake batter is infused with green dye instead of the traditional red, coloring the cake with a shade of green somewhere between “forest” and “Oscar the Grouch”.

Though the La Jolla location doesn’t have a cupcake vending machine (yet), the store will have extended hours starting this Thursday (until 9 p.m., Mon-Sat and 8 p.m. on Sundays). To celebrate, Sprinkles is giving each customer one free cupcake on March 15 and 16 from 8 p.m.-9 p.m.
