I have DD coffee daily and never have any problems. But a word of caution, I did get gluttened once and I think it was from the lid being put on by someone who had just handled the donuts. Now I always remove the lid before drinking and have only had a few spills lol.

My DD16 and I were just saying we would kill for a real donut!

I don't think I could go into a Krispy Kreme or Dunkin Donuts because the smell would just kill me. :(

I MISS DONUTS!!! (and the Kinnikinnicks are nice, but they aren't Krispy Kreme)

I drink DD coffee and it makes me sick. I'm trying to figure out why. Yesterday I tried a local coffee, Community, who makes a half-caffeine version. I was a little sick, but manageable. Today I tried DD for kicks and puked it up about 5 minutes later. If they say their beverages are gluten-free, then why do I get sick every time I drink it?

Cross contamination is the likely answer. Especially if they actually make the doughnuts there. I personally wouldn't risk it.

Haha. We don't even have a DD here. I buy it from the store and make it at home. So no cross contamination.

What else do they process at the plant? Cross contamination can occur in a plant setting if they are making items that are not gluten free. If you can drink other coffee with no issues then just stick to the brand that doesn't make you sick.

i drink DD coffee everyday from their store and don't have problems. i used to drink regular but switched to decaf after going gluten-free which doesn't seem to run through me like the regular coffee did.

my friend (who doesn't have any food issues) said she gets nauseous from their coffee but recently had it black without cream or anything in it and was fine.

I love DD coffee, it doesn't make me sick so much as it makes me 'loose' if you know what I mean. This is not always a bad thing, however, but I was worrying that it may have gluten. I make it at home so it's not cross contaminated. Other coffee doesn't have the same drastic effect but does seem to be sort of a 'stimulant to the system'.

I've started questioning whether DD ground coffee is gluten-free also. I've been having the same issues with some of their coffee as you have. I emailed them earlier this week, and these are the responses I received.

---------------------------------------------------------
"Thank you for contacting The J.M. Smucker Company regarding our Dunkin' DonutsŪ coffee products. For over 110 years, consumer safety and product quality have been of paramount importance to our company.

Coffee is not a source of gluten and our Dunkin' DonutsŪ roast and ground coffee items are produced in a dedicated facility where no other types of agricultural crops are handled or processed. However, due to the use of common equipment within the agricultural community to harvest, store and transport crops, our roast and ground products may contain trace amounts of grain-based ingredients.

Additionally, our flavored coffee products may contain added ingredients that are not gluten free.

Thank you again for your interest. We hope that you will continue to enjoy our products for years to come. If you should have further questions or need additional information, please visit us at www.dunkinathome.com or contact us at 800-374-5308, Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time."
---------------------------------------------------------

I wasn't satisfied with the response because I wanted to know what coffee products contain gluten ingredients, so I responded with "Do you know which coffee products in fact contain added ingredients, and if those ingredients are in fact gluten free?" Here is the response. I think I'll find a different brand for flavored coffee.

-------------------------------------------------
"Thank you for contacting The J.M. Smucker Company regarding Dunkin' DonutsŪ Mocha Mint Ground Coffee. We always enjoy hearing from consumers and are pleased to know you enjoy our products.

We do apologize, but specific ingredients used to flavor Dunkin' DonutsŪ Mocha Mint Ground Coffee are proprietary information."

While away for the weekend I got 'glutened' and was afraid it was the flavored DD Iced coffee I 'treated' myself to while driving.
I have since checked their website and you are able to see a list of the ingredients for the flavored syrups at http://www.dunkindon...n_catalog.html.

The good news is the coffee was not to blame :D - the bad news is the calorie count was more than I expected :huh: .

I noticed that the Dunks I used to get at their shops tastes different from the Dunks I make at home. It ALMOST tastes to me like there is a little bit of sugar doughnut taste in the stuff from the actual doughnut shops. I know that a lot of Dunks shops get their doughnuts off a truck and don't make them at the shops themselves, but I would still think the chance of CC is pretty high. The employees are touching doughnuts all day and then they touch the coffe filters.

We have no Dunks here in South Dakota but I buy their coffee in the grocery store and make it at home. It is one of my special treats - especially when I make it in the French press. It has never made me sick. On the contrary, a cup of Dunks in the morning makes me feel so good!

When I lived in Connecticut I worked in a lot of different reataurants. We were always allowed to drink as much free coffee as we wanted. And yet at every place I worked, someone would always make a Dunks run and bring coffee for all of us. Every night. At one place I worked, the CUSTOMERS would bring me Dunkin' Dark Roast (which they no longer make) because they knew I loved it. I remember one night I had FOUR large cups lined up on the shelf because they all brought me some at the same time. I drank it all too. Didn't sleep when I got home, but it was worth it. :D

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!
