Celiacs with a passion are taking action! Triumph Dining just sent me an email saying it has started a petition to convince Starbucks to keep its short-lived Gluten-Free Valencia Orange Cake. Earlier this week Starbucks said it was discontinuing it because people said they wanted something more nutritious.
The celiac community isn’t all too pleased with it. Triumph Dining summed it up well…
“This is a tremendous blow to the gluten-free community. It’s already so hard to find good, safe gluten-free options. Having a gluten-free treat at Starbucks was an enormous win for the community. It’s sad to see it disappear such a short time later, without any real explanation.”
So Triumph Dining is doing something about it… They’ve put together this petition that they want everyone to sign. They hope 5,000 will be enough to make Starbucks realize they’ve made a mistake and the gluten-free voice is a loud and unified one!
Good luck Triumph Dining!
