Starbuck's is definitely in a bad cycle with their pastries. I get the feeling they have their old standards and some are season-related, but the current stock of pastries at Starbuck's are lame! When I used to go in the spring they had delicious vanilla and chocolate cupcakes and I heard they were getting orange in, but now no cupcakes, just more yucky coffee cakes (banana/chocolate? yuck!) and "healthy" looking options (which are probably really unhealthy) like the oat cookies and maple oat scones. I hope it changes or I won't be going back.
