We were under the impression that the only thing that could ever be scary about Starbucks is the lines (and okay, the vitriolic red cup backlash). But as one imgur user pointed out, we totally overlooked something: these "frightful" polar bear cookies.

At first glance, the playful little biscuits seem completely innocuous—except for the calories because who can eat just one? But an eagle-eyed eater suggested that the bright red scarf around the sweet bears' necks look a tad like someone pulled an American Psycho on their poor, sugary throats. 

Of course we think this is a bit of a stretch, and the original poster has some darkness to sort through, but after watching one too many episodes of CSI, we kinda see what he means. 

Naturally, the imgur community had a little fun with it. While some of the remarks were in poor taste, we can repeat the one from this Game of Thrones, "The Lannisters send their regards." Indeed. 

Just think, if you win free Starbucks for life, you could have an endless supply of these creepy-cute cookies. Sign us up!
