Starbucks New Signature Hot Chocolates
0

14 posts in this topic

Just checked with Starbucks' customer service and all three of the new Signature Hot Chocolate's are gluten-free:

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate

Sweet and salty, a twist on hot chocolate.

Hazelnut Hot Chocolate

Creamy and nutty, the perfect treat.

I wanted to try one of the new signature hot chocolates (they used to have this super-rich chocolate drink that I LOVED)... but I found out they can't make them dairy-free :(

They can't do them with soy? Or is it a powder and they just add water for you?

I think it's the cocoa mix that has traces of milk. I asked if they could use soy milk and they said, "Sorry... we can only make our regular hot chocolate dairy-free."

Sigh....I swear this dairy free thing is harder to handle than the gluten free. :(

Tell me about it! <_<

I'm from Wisconsin... all of my grandparents were raised on dairy farms. My immediate family (just four people) would go through several gallons of milk a week. I'm doing better the longer I go without dairy, but there are days when I crave a piece of cheese. I don't mind having soy milk or almond milk on my cereal... soy yogurt is a lot better than I thought it would be... but when I'm done breastfeeding my casein-intolerant son I'm hoping I can have a little bit of dairy again.

There are many days where I feel the same way. It does seem way harder to be df than gluten-free. Becoming gluten-free was not nearly as hard as trying to be df.

I just read the post on the Vivanno frozen drinks, and the comments in that post about cross-contamination from protein powder.

Wouldn't it be possible for any steamed drink to be CC because of this powder? Can anyone comment? I LOVE my caramel macciato's and soy vanilla lattes. Now I'm not so sure....

You can ask them to clean the steam wand and use a clean pitcher when they make your drink. I think that was the conclusion on the thread you mentioned :)

If you're really sensitive to CC, better to stick with something simple like tea or plain coffee.

My wife just went to the Starbucks in Anaheim at the Hyatt Regency and was told no way are their hot chocolates gluten free.

I called Starbucks today, and was told that the cocoa mix is made on equipment that also processes wheat (among other allergens). Just an FYI.

Are their chai tea lattes gluten free? I don't know what drinks the vanilla bean powder is in.

I have found that some of the local gas station coffee/cappuccino drinks affect me and some do not. I have had to find out through trial and error. I would miss a coffee/cappuccino mix in the morning if I couldn't find one I could have. We just had a pumpkin cappuccino that was awesome!! I tried making my own but it just wasn't the same.

Oh and as a rule I don't like Starbucks. I have never gotten anything there that I like. Maybe I just didn't know what to try.

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
