Starbucks to Discountinue Valencia Orange Cake?

Posted: 17 Jul 2009 01:35 PM PDT

Much to the delight of the Celiac community, back in April the popular Starbucks franchise listened to feedback from their customers, built a dedicated gluten free kitchen, and announced the release of their first gluten free menu item, the Valencia Orange Cake. Since then, not all reviews of this new product have been glowing, but the goodwill Starbucks built up has been overwhelming, making this product launch a strong success for this company in my mind.

Now only three months later, after several speculative reports online, it looks like Starbucks may be planning to discontinue this new product and replace it with the more nutritious KIND Fruit and Nut Bars. When asked on their official Twitter page, here was Starbucks response:

We heard that it was too much of a treat, and not a nutritious snack. The KindSnacks bar is replacing it.

At this point, I guess this is mostly speculation/concern, but we will post additional information once something is confirmed either way. To those of you that have tried the Valencia Orange Cake, what did you think?

Update: The Celiac community is very proactive, and it looks like Triumph Dining has started a petition. You can learn more and sign the petition here.

And what do they consider their Frapuccinos with hazle nut syrup, whipped cream and milk, a healthy drink? I think that we can determine if we are in the mood for a healthy snack and eat the kindsnack or are in the mood for a treat and have the valencia orange gluten-free cake. What Starbucks wants to "think" for me now, too?

I putting my vote in.. Thanks for posting the link.

This left a bad taste in my mouth, too. :angry:

The last time I was there, I had tea and my brought-from-home Enjoy Life Bar, while my husband ordered an apparently healthy chocolate chip cookie <_< . I guess if you're not following a gluten-free diet, Starbucks doesn't mind you having a treat.

Me too

I'm not buying any of this.

These are some of the reasons i'm reading on other forums.

1. Not healthy ...like the other bakery treats they have there are? :blink:

2. Too expencive to make.......... :ph34r: PLEEAASSEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

3. They can't keep with the demand for the product. :angry:

4. They weren't selling. B)

5. Easier for them to TRY to satisfy us by 'throwing' us a bar we can buy anywhere else and bring into their store....... ;)

6. You had to ask for the orange cake in most store because it was not even in the food case. It was always pulled from someplace that was out of my view. Yes, but I think people asked for that becasue of cc and that's why it was wrapped individually.

7. It is just a rumor and there is a petition. We need everyone to sign that petition to show what a LARGE, and IMPORTANT group we are becoming.General Mills reformulated Chex cereals.

Have any of you heard other reasons?

I think they are product testing the gluten free community.

General Mills reformulated Chex cereals. We now are getting (is it Betty Crocker?) baking mixes.
