Starbucks baked bads

I drink Starbucks coffee a few times a week. It's not the best but it's convenient and reliable. I rarely get their baked goods because they're just not very good. But sometimes I get so ravenously hungry and there they are, looking pretty in the glass case, and I give in. Maybe once or twice a month. I don't expect much. I expect mediocrity and I get it. But after today, no more! I got a slice of the cinnamon coffee cake and this one really takes the cake, literally. It's so far below mediocre that it's downright inedible. The cake is so pasty that you could spackle with it. The cinnamon swirls are gummy and viscous like, like... aged spit. The flavor is... the antithesis of butter, if that's even possible. What the hell is this crap?!? NEVER again! Ok, rant over.
