Starbucks is not making healthy snack products in-stores, a spokeswoman said in a statement Tuesday.
Instead, it is making its own healthy snack brands in a number of ways, the spokeswoman said.
Starbucks is using ingredients from its own food supply, including frozen, canned and fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, and other natural ingredients, the statement said.
“Our commitment to the community is that we serve as a catalyst for positive change, and as a community, we encourage people to join us in our mission of creating a better world by improving the quality of our food and beverage choices,” the statement read.
“While our focus has been to bring people together to make healthy choices, we recognize that this will require us to adapt to changing consumer needs, and in this case, we are focusing on providing people with options that are more appropriate for them to make healthier choices.”
Starbuck’s new healthy snack program will include the new Fruity Pebbles, a new Fruit Pies, and a new Snacks Bar.
The new Fruits and Snacks bar will be a mix of frozen and fresh fruit, with a mix to include frozen and raw bananas and peaches.
The Fruitakes bar will feature a mix including apples, carrots, watermelon, and pineapple.
The Snacks will be made with a variety of fruits, including banana, mango, blueberries, cantaloupe, peaches, apples, grapes, strawberries, and more.
The new Healthy Bar Bar is a mix made of fruit and watermelon.
The Nutri-Grain Bar Bar and Snack Bar will be created with organic, natural ingredients.
The Fruit Bar Bar Bar will include a mix that includes fresh fruits, berries, apples and other fruits.
The Fruits Bar Bar has been available for about a month.
