Giant coffee chain Starbucks debuted vegan passionfruit cupcakes across South Florida locations earlier this week.

The cupcakes, which are made by Miami-based vegan bakery Bunnie Cakes, are 100 percent plant-based and gluten-free – and the first animal-free desserts in Starbucks stores.

According to a Starbucks representative, the company is ‘ecstatic’, and the cupcakes are ‘amazing’.


Bakery owner Mariana Cortez told Latest Vegan News that she is thrilled about the coffee chain’s move.

“I have to pinch myself to believe it, I am extremely happy and proud of this accomplishment, we were chosen to be the only local partner among many other regular bakeries and desserts,” she says.

“This proves to me that we are changing the way we see things, the way we eat. 

“Years ago I couldn’t find a vegan cake for my son in Miami, today we are partnering with one the biggest business in the U.S., a dream come true.”

The vegan treats, which retail for $2.50, are now available at select Starbucks stores as of this week, with the possibility of them becoming more widely available in the future.
