Now here’s an online petition that you can really sink your teeth into. As the petition explains, “You can’t go into a Starbucks these days, and mention how much you miss the old scones, without someone overhearing and agreeing with you.” If you agree, add your name to this online petition to ask Starbucks to bring back the old scones. (We particularly miss the Starbucks maple oat scones.)
Here’s the full text of the petition – to sign it (no email address required! Just your name and location) go to the Petition asking Starbucks to bring back the old scones.
You can’t go into a Starbucks these days, and mention how much you miss the old scones, and dislike the new ones from La Boulange, without someone overhearing and agreeing with you. Do the new ones sell? Sure, because that’s the only choice you have for scones at Starbucks now, but is that any way to keep customers satisfied?
As a long-time Starbucks customer, a Starbucks gold card holder, and, most importantly, a Starbucks shareholder, I am concerned by the turn that Starbucks has taken here. While scones may seem a small thing, it is the very consistency of quality that keeps the customer coming back.
If you too are disappointed by the new scones at Starbucks, and want Starbucks to go back to giving the customer the scones they want, please join us by signing the below letter and petition to Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz. It is only by direct customer feedback like this that a large corporation like Starbucks will realize when their customers are dissatisfied.

Howard Schultz, CEO, Starbucks
2401 Utah Avenue South, Seattle, WA 98134
The below undersigned, all customers of Starbucks from across the country, would like to let you know that we do not like the new scones, and would like Starbucks to please bring back the old-style scones.
