Starbucks Discontinues Orange Valencia Cake, Part II

Gluten Free living, a great blog, has an interesting post about the recent decision by Starbucks to discontinue the Gluten Free Orange Valencia Cake.

In sum, the blogger spoke to a representative from Starbucks, who said that the Orange Valencia cake was too much of a treat that Starbucks customers would not eat every day. Well, duh.

The representative also says that Starbucks is not against creating another gluten free product. I vote for sandwiches -- I've said it before, and I will say it again, but when I visited a Starbucks in London they had fresh gluten free sandwiches on the shelves!

What do YOU think Starbucks should do? They have replaced the Orange Valencia Cake with Kind Bars.

I love the idea of gluten-free sandwiches at Starbucks! I think there is a better chance of getting this option or another baked good than ever bringing back the Valencia orange cake.
Also, thanks for the kind words about the blog. We thoroughly enjoy reading glutenfreeway too!
