To say that I was a little ticked off would have been an understatement. The only other place I could turn to for help would be Walmart, which until recently, offered a few bagels every now and then, but they're as rare to find as bacon and Mac and Cheese. So, I decided to reach out to the Powers That Be at Starbucks using social media to ask why they’d discontinued the plain bagel in Argentina. Did I get a response? Uh, that would be a huge no!
While Starbucks Argentina read my message, they never bothered to respond. So, I figured, the company down here was probably slacking off. It wouldn’t shock me. A few years ago, I e-mailed McDonald’s Argentina to see if they’d consider adding a more Americanized breakfast menu, and they suggested I leave Argentina to find my Americanized breakfast somewhere else. So, I reached out to Starbucks in the States to let them know what was going on. They also read my message, but failed to respond.
