Starbucks Discontinues Valencia Orange Cake

It's only been two months since Starbucks introduced their delicious gluten-free Valencia Orange Cake (scroll down to read my blog entry below). Now, with no explanation, they've discontinued it. If you feel strongly -- like I do -- that Starbucks should bring it back (or at least offer another gluten-free pastry), please sign the online petition Triumph Dining has developed. Once they get 5,000 online signatures, Triumph Dining will be sending it to Starbucks. I read recently that up to 14% of the U.S. population is trying to follow a gluten-free diet (due to Celiac, gluten-intolerance, or other health reasons). You'd think Starbucks would recognize the importance -- and potential profitability -- of catering to this segment of the population.
