Starbuck's - La Boulange Bakery Products - a la - La 'Tasteless' Bakery
RENTON, WASHINGTON -- Recently Starbuck's made a decision to either change their baked goods from their current supplier to La Boulange Bakery (of San Francisco). So far I have tried two of the baked 'loaf' products offered the Walnut Banana Loaf and something called Passion Fruit Lemon Loaf (or something like that). Both of these products are basically - tasteless unlike the breads they are replacing. Neither was very sweet and the Banana Bread basically had no taste whatsoever.
Whomever is responsible for this enormously bad decision at Starbuck's should definitely rethink it. La Boulange is probably a really good 'San Francisco' bakery company that bakes daily and when it's fresh it's probably great, but having had to travel from there to here - not so much.
