You complained, Starbucks heard, classic pastries are coming back

Starbucks has had all-new pastries on the menu since it bought gourmet baker La Boulange in 2012.

Problem is, not everybody liked the new offerings.

Well rejoice, coffee drinkers! Starbucks is bringing back some of those old favorites - slightly retooled - soon.

“We’ve got a few products that we are going to bring back from the old menu,” Troy Alstead, chief operating officer for Seattle-based Starbucks, said in an interview. “Some customers missed a few things.”

Starting this week, the company will begin reverting to selling slices of banana, pumpkin and iced-lemon loaf cake -- old favorites -- in its U.S. stores. Starbucks will be using new La Boulange recipes and existing suppliers to create food that more closely resembles its previous fare.
