Victory: New Vegan Cupcake at Starbucks!

smcdonald Campaigns, Veg Eating, Victories

Thousands of compassionate consumers like you have joined Compassion Over Killing and Jane Velez-Mitchell in asking for vegan foods at Starbucks — and the coffee chain is responding by brewing up new menu items!

This summer, Starbucks debuted a protein-packed vegan lentil bowl…which quickly sold out at some locations due to high demand. The addition followed dairy-free milks (almond, soy, and coconut!) for drinks, as well as vegan snacks and a breakfast option.

Now, some Starbucks customers have a latte to smile about: a new sweet treat to have with their coffee. Starbucks is now serving a vegan cupcake in South Florida!

Latest Vegan News reports that the new benevolent baked good, being served at selection locations, is a passion fruit cupcake from Miami’s Bunnie Cakes.

The bakery’s owner, Mariana Cortez, told the blog, “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 the biggest business in the U.S.”.

Starbucks is indeed one of many companies acting on massive demand as consumers increasingly turn toward vegan foods. COK campaigns have prompted options at mainstream chains including Subway, Dunkin’ Donuts, Pita Pit, and more.

Starbucks, the nation’s largest coffee chain — which has told COK that it’s working on vegan options — has the opportunity to serve delicious, animal-friendly foods to million of consumers across the country.
