SWEET PROGRESS: Starbucks debuts its first vegan dessert -- Ask for it in your hometown!
Oct 23, 2017 — Starbucks has made a latte South Floridians’ dreams come true: The chain just debuted its first vegan baked good, a passion fruit cupcake from Miami-based bakery Bunnie Cakes, in select locations! Help bring these sweet treats to millions more nationwide by asking Starbucks for a vegan cupcake in your hometown!
This cupcake is the latest of several animal-free options the chain has brewed up, following this summer’s protein-packed vegan lentil bowl (which quickly sold out at some locations due to high demand), as well as dairy-free milks (almond, soy, and coconut!), vegan snacks, and a breakfast option.
Bunnie Cakes’ owner, Mariana Cortez, told Latest Vegan News, “This proves to me that we are changing the way we see things, the way we eat. Years ago I couldn’t find a vegan cake for my son in Miami, today we are partnering with one [of] the biggest business[es] in the U.S.”
If you’re in South Florida, give the new cupcake a shot! If you’re not so fortunate, head over to https://ideas.starbucks.com/ and ask the chain for vegan sweet treats in your area today. Starbucks pours out new items directly in response to customer feedback--so it’s crucial that the chain hears from you that plant-based demand is soaring nationwide!
