Hello,

I was recently sent a list of gluten-free foods available at Pret-a-Manger, and I thought I'd post it on here as it may be useful to some of you. Especially concerning the soups, as whenever I ask, I just get stared at blankly!

They are now doing a wheat-free sandwich, unfortunately it's not gluten-free, but it's a step in the right direction.

So here is what we can eat from Pret:


Bakery
The amazing wheat free orange cake

Cold drinks
All drinks except: Pret Still Lemon Aid and Voom.

Crisps and snacks
Croxton Manor Cheddar & Red Onion Crisps
Dried Mango
Maldon Sea Salt Crisps
Nuts & Bolts
Parsnip Crisps
Popcorn Honey
Sea Salt & Mixed Peppercorns Crisps
Sea Salt & Cider Vinegar Crisps
Vegetable Crisps
Yoghurt & Nuts Rocks

Hot Drinks
12oz Cappuccino with or without choc
12oz Hot chocolate
Latte
Mocha

Pret Pots and Puddings
Chocolate Moose
Fair Trade Pineapple
Pret Fruit Salad
Raspberry Pret Pot
Seedless Grapes
Tropical Fruit Sticks
Very Berry Pret Pot

Salads & Sushi
Chicken Avocado Salad (no dressing)
Dolphin Friendly Tuna Salad (no dressing)
French Dressing
No Bread Chicken Caesar
No Bread Mozzarella and Tomato
No Bread Wild Crayfish & Avocado
Skinny Dip
Smoked Salmon, Wild Crayfish & Dijon Dressing

Soup
Celeriac Mash
Chicken Souk (spiced)
Five Bean Cassoulet
Lentil & Bacon
Malaysian Chicken
Miso Soup
Mushroom Risotto Soup
Sweet Red Pepper

I am new to the boards and this is the first thing I read, if it's all this helpful I can see myself on here even all the time! Nice to see there is a place that does gluten-free hot chocolate, I used to love Costa's but the guy at my local said the ingredients may have changed on theirs and he wont serve me until he is sure (they are very helpful there!)

I just bought a Wheat Free Salmon & Egg sandwich. I asked at the counter if it was gluten free, they checked and said yes. However I was suspicious and called the Head Office who confirmed it is not. On the sandwich there is a symbol of a grain of wheat crossed through - very similar to the crossed grain symbol. If you get an opportunity, please point this out to Pret a Manger.

Hi; yeah, their wheat free bread is actually rye bread. The amount of people who don't realise that wheat free doesn't necessarily mean gluten free is rather large - it doesn't surprise me that the people at pret don't know. They're so clueless in pret!

I did notice that their label looks a lot like the cross grain symbol - obviously they didn't do their research!

Though I guess it is a step in the right direction :)

Be wary of Pret!!!
They were handing out free oatmeal in Manhattan today and the worker tried to tell me that it was gluten-free because it was organic. Not so, in fact, as I called their headquarters and was told that it was not.
Then they tried to tell me that they had sandwiches made with gluten-free rye bread, which as far as I know, doesn't exist.....
So be VERY careful going there,, and know that their lists of "gluten-free foods" may not be correct.
May want to consider aking contact with them and getting them better information.
Be careful out there, fellow celiacs!!
