    Smile Redwood Foods on the menu at Starbucks

    Redwood Foods on the menu at Starbucks*

    If you fancy a bite to eat when you're out and about, make a beeline for Starbucks, which is serving up delicious vegan food made with Redwood ingredients. Their wonderful vegan Falafel and Houmous Flatbread, made with Redwood's very own Vegideli falafel, comes with fresh tomato, cucumber slices and mixed leaves on a Mediterranean flat bread a feast!

    Wow, that is good news! Will make many vegans happy, and hopefully promotes veganism.
    Personally, however, I boycott Starbucks for using genetically engineered ingredients and Bovine Growth Hormone.

    Starbucks are a bit dodgy on plenty of counts, but the regular customers i'm sure would tuck into those foods.

    Yes probably. I wish they'd do some vegan options here, other than the vegan brownie.

    Vegan Brownie!!!? Wow. It's so hard to get anything like that here.

    I've eaten one of those falafel things actually and it wasn't bad. I only go to a Starbucks about once a year so don't feel too guilty.

    I didn't know it was Redwoods though. I wish more places would sell that instead of all these things with eggwhite in them.

    I don't know who their supplier was before redwood, but the falafel and humous flatbread has been available at starbucks in the UK for years - labelled as vegan. I've had it a few times when in London, it's quite nice but a bit overpriced (and about 50p cheaper if you eat it outside). I tend not to go there very often, but their soya lattes are far superior to costa's.

    are you for real?

    i dont support star*ucks

    for the use of genettically engineerd stuff like someone already said, but also because they overroast pretty much all thier coffee, and WILL NOT brew fair trade coffee in house, they claim its too expensive...

    bah!

    It's not US specific. I think it's just flat out wrong.

    They seem to be making at least a token effort to not only support fair trade, but to be at least somewhat ecologically friendly.

    last time i went in Starbucks i was told they won't do lattes with fair trade coffee. i wasn't exactly a regular customer, but now i definitely won't bother. Brighton has some good independent cafes that sell proper fair trade coffee.

    good news about the vegan food though, hope people buy it!

    I have gone in from time to time for a soya coffee through lack of any other option and I got one of these in Bath it was really nice.

    Starbucks have lots to answer for sadly, but sometimes I compramise some things but never veganism so I had to use them as they were the only known option in the area at that time.
    Go confidently in the direction of your dreams

    i agree Snaff, Starbucks may not be the best company in terms of general ethics but it's good to know that it's possible to get decent vegan food and coffee there if you need/want to.

    this is kind of a recurring theme. When I was non vegan generally everything i bought was better than i could make myself. Now it's the other way round most of the time, and i wonder why i bothered paying ten times the cost of the ingrediants for something to be made by someone else.

    thanks, but what i said was they dont brew it!

    nothing about roasting it

    they sell fairtrade coffee, yes.

    they do not brew it in thier cafes.
