Molasses Cookie Returns

Hi, it’s Megan from the food team. I’m here to tell you about the exciting news around the return of a very special item, the Molasses Cookie. This cookie has been near and dear to the hearts of our customers and after a short time away, it has now returned to our Pacific Northwest Starbucks stores. Our product development team jumped at the chance to bring back this delicious chewy treat and now it’s better than ever. You can once again enjoy the deep flavor of molasses and brown sugar with a touch of cinnamon, ginger and clove. Along with all of our food, this cookie has zero grams of artificial trans fat, no artificial dyes, artificial flavors nor high fructose corn syrup.
Thanks to all of you on MSI who let us know how much you wanted this cookie; we listened and hope you get to try it soon!

unfortunately, with all honesty, i would rather eat cardboard than any of the cookies at the local starbucks.  they are all very hard and dry, just like biscotti (which i also cannot stand).

in my very quiet opinion (okay, maybe not so quiet), i'd rather see either a locally baked cookie, or that gluten-free orange cake back.  i am not a gluten-free person, and i loved that thing.

i understand starbucks is trying to get on the healthy band-wagon, but you guys have got to give a little.  please?

(first, I'd like to point out that it just took me five times of 're' signing-in to finally get here:(  

I think it's great that the molasses cookie is back..except it's in your Pacific NW stores.  I wanted to coment about that issue, overall, anyway.  It's really disheartening to be in one of the largest cities in the U.S. and so remote from all Sbux-Seattle.   There was the promise of the Clover expansion, and therefore, ideally, I was hoping, the ability to have small batch coffees (Yirgacheffe, for example)......that never happened to the extent we were told and expecting.  (2 stores in all of Chicago land)  There seems a  giant divide bewteen Seattle-Sbux and the rest of the many ways.  

So, I applaud the return of this cookie, but this is another Seattle scenario.   I'm just a little frustrated with the big difference.

I am so excited about this! The molasses cookie was always a favorite treat of mine, so I was somewhat disappointed when it went away. But it's back! What I like about it, besides the great taste, is that there are hardly any crumbs when you eat it. The cookie holds together, leaving no mess to worry about!
