Starbucks FAIL

Well, Starbucks just lost my family as customers. They stopped carrying the Gluten Free Orange Valencia Cake. According to Starbucks on Twitter, they stopped carrying it because it was too much of a treat and not healthy enough, so they replaced it with KIND bars. Yep. They replaced a cake with a granola bar. I guess the gluteny chocolate pound cake and the double iced mocha frappachinos are healthy.

That is such a bummer!! :(

I do like the Kind bars, but I will say that if I had a choice, that Valencia Orange cake would beat a Kind bar any day!

Are they carrying a variety of Kind bars or just one kind?

I've only see one type of Kind Bar...I'm not a fan of them, especially since I could just buy a case of them and keep one all me at all times....

I am on your side as a gluten free eater...I also cannot believe that my friends consume so many calories in those coffees...also a coffee house that I hold my open mic in will not listen to my pleadings of offering healthier menu items...otherwise I refuse to purchase anything, even water from them...put me on the petition...well if you get one going...
