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.

    • Hi Aly and welcome You may want to repost this in a new thread, that way more people will see it and can advise you.  I think you would be much better off getting the celiac test now, if you stay off gluten you will need to go back on it and that can be much harder. That said, loads of your symptoms look like they could be gluten related.  I had a persistent 'trapped nerve' for instance under my eye which would twitch like crazy. Since I went gluten-free doesn't happen any more.  Best of luck! Matt
    • Your scalp sounds like seborrheic dermatitis. I have that and although its better after going gluten-free its very persistent. The dermatologist recommended Nizoral shampoo for it and it does help. I think dairy has a big part to play with skin problems, for me at least. 
    • I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu. I have yet to meet another celiac, so that tells you something about our limitations here. I work in Waikiki and do frequent Rouffage. It is nothing fancy, small place, but keeps me fed when I need something. I also like Greens and Vines. It is a vegan restaurant and worth every penny. Greens and vines sets up at the KCC farmers market on Saturdays too. Places in Waikiki that do offer a gluten-free menu include, PF Changs, Dennys, Big City Diner and California Pizza kitchen. I do not trust those places due to the risk, but they "offer" gluten-free options. I did try and order a beer at Yard House in Waikiki. They label clearly states that it contained wheat, so yeah sent that back with the waiter. I have also tied Doraku in Waikiki. I called ahead and spoke with management. That went well and they offer gluten free soy sauce. There is a deli at Down to Earth Grocery store in Honolulu that has gluten-free options, but the whole foods here do not offer hot food that is gluten free. They do have a hot food bar, but you have to stick to the whole plain salad and veggie options. It's good to hear the hotels here are getting better, beyond Waikiki hotels there is no one really interested in being gluten free.
