I think this is a great idea… not sure if it will happen for at least a few years, but at least let’s get some attention to this story!
Yes, it would be awesome to have gluten free Girl Scout cookies!
Does this make sense for the Girl Scouts to invest in this endeavor? How many people would actually buy them? I would! I would probably buy a lot, because we don’t have many other gluten free cookie options. I don’t know the current stats, but what is it, 1 in 133 people have Celiac? BUT only 3-5% of them actually know they have it. So, the market for gluten free cookies is pretty slim. Would Girl Scouts pass this cost onto the consumer? It would lower the amount that I buy… but I’d still buy some!
1. I don’t like coffee! I don’t like the smell, the taste, or the prices… I’d rather buy a top-shelf gin & tonic for those prices!
2. They took away free wifi! …at least I think they did. I haven’t tried recently.
3.They got rid of their gluten free Valencia Orange Cake!!! WTF!
Triumph dining has put together a petition they are going to send to Startbucks to let them know how upset we are. It’s like a slap in the face to the gluten free community.
I am writing to request that you bring back the gluten-free Valencia Orange Cake. It’s so hard to find good, safe gluten-free options. Having a gluten-free treat at Starbucks was an enormous win for me personally, and the community at large. Starbucks is known for its community involvement, and having the gluten-free Valencia Orange Cake really hammered that home for the gluten-free community. It’s sad to see the cake disappear such a short time later, without any real explanation.
