Starbucks Announces a Gluten Free Pastry!

I just read some great news for the Celiac community.    Starbucks coffeehouses, which can be found on every other street corner throughout the United States, will now be offering a new gluten free pastry, according to Forbes.com.

According to the article, the pastry, called Valencia Orange Cake, will be made with seven ingredients which are all 100 percent gluten-free. The cake will be sold in individually wrapped packages for $2.25 each and will be available beginning May 5, 2009.

Here is what Starbucks had to say with their announcement:

“I think one of the things we learned right from the get-go from our gluten-free customers is they can’t eat away from home very easily,” said Adrienne Knapp, a product manager in the food category at Starbucks. “A cake is actually really hard to find for someone that’s a gluten-free consumer.”

It is good to see that Starbucks is listening to their customers (or potential customers) feedback!
