Starbucks + La Boulange [moved from San Francisco board]

I know I'm not supposed to admit to drinking anything but pour-over coffee, but sometimes I can't wait 20 minutes and I need to use my credit card. So can we talk about the new La Boulange offerings at Starbucks? The stuff is even staler than before the merger, and now some poor barista has to take my fossilized cheese danish/croissant/whatever out of a little plastic baggie and try to fluff it up in the oven. Is this really the plan? I thought the whole point was to get fresh, decent baked goods into Starbucks.

Am I crazy? Has anyone else had the same experience? The pink takeaway bag reminds me of La Boulange but the product itself does not.
