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.



StarbucksŪ Signature Hot Chocolate
A rich, creamy hot chocolate indulgence.


Can't wait to try the salted one!

As usual they said to only avoid any Java Chip Frapps and anything with Vanilla Bean Powder.

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.

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.

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.
