I rarely ask you to do things....

...unless you've volunteered for kids ministry. heh heh heh: then we are fellow minions and all bets are off! (and I mean minions in the most spiritual sense of the word, of course... duh)


Where was I?

Oh, yes.

Do something for me?

As you may have heard (unless A-you don't eat gluten-free or B-you do, but live under the proverbial rock), Starbucks is going to pull its one gluten-free pastry, the Valencia Orange Cake because "We heard that it was too much of a treat, and not a nutritious snack. The KindSnacks bar is replacing it" (Starbucks Twitter, July 15). -sigh- For me this is a big, big, sad, obvious sort of thing. Cake = treat, not nutrition. Um, yeah, sure does.

I have pestered them already, asking when they're also pulling their brownie, donuts, muffins, cookies, rice crispy treats, and bacon sandwiches. No answer yet.

Here's something more productive you can do: sign this petition. It's being hosted by Triumph Dining, aka the advertiser at the top of this page. Please sign.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Starbucks up in Canada better not dare think of doing something as foolish as removing a gluten free item. It was bad enough when they stopped making the low-fat brownie. Why? Why did they have to do that??
