Where’s My Muff gone? :-@

 Right, I’m really mad about this!…..

On a daily basis, I (used to) head to Starbucks to order my favorite drink and snack – A Mocha Frappacino with  Blue Berry Muffin.

Upon my return back to Kuwait from Dubai, I was mortified to learn that Starbucks had changed their Muffin Supplier from “Le Notre’s” Bakery to an in-house “Al-Shaya” bakery. Here’s what I immediately noticed:

  • The muffins had been on a diet. They were MUCH smaller than before – no surprise that the price hadn’t changed.
  • The muffins had lost their crunchy, crystallized sugar granules which made the ‘tops’ so tasty.
  • The muffins had been baked for too long, they looked over cooked and were much drier than before.
  • The muffins had lost their blue berries. Yep, most of them had vanished to be replaced by more sponge.

I vented my frustration to the SB server but he just smiled and said ‘sorry, the company have changed their baker.’ Well, it looks like my 3 year love affair with SB has finally come to an end. It’s a shame that it had to end this way – I will miss them a lot.

Gone but never forgotten. Rip Muffins.

    I think they changed all the cakes in Starbux now. Gotta admit, the new stuff is pretty crappy.

    Hey Toxy why dont you contact the manager of the starbucks branchs at Al-Shaya’a they seem to be very customer oriented so I dont think they would want to know about your complaint.

    Good idea Marzouq, I once met the General Manager (or so he claimed). I’ll have to try and get in touch with this guy to describe my disdain….
