*lucy's* Cookies........ Anyone Tried Them?
Posted 21 July 2010 - 02:21 PM
This statement is right on their home page
"We use the best available methods to ensure there are no detectable allergens from our testing list: gluten, milk, eggs, peanuts and almonds."
I did not allow my son to eat them as we are currently avoiding oats as per the GI recommendation for the first 6 months. Would you have eaten them? I am kinda upset that Starbucks is handing them out stating they are gluten free, although I KNOW it is my own responsibility to read the label.
Any insight? As a side note, I tried the cookies and they are REALLY tasty! As well they are nut and peanut free which is nice as few gluten free products are and we like to share treats with our friend who has tree and peanut allergies!

There is no gluten in Oats. Oats are consider cross contaminated because they are grown in the same fields as Wheat , Rye and Barley.

Starbuck's is supposed to carry Kind bars, which are gluten-free and made from dried fruit and nuts. I really like them.

I've tried the Lucy's cookies and we didn't have any reaction problems. The Lucy's doesn't even compare as real cookies compared to Liz Lovely.
Ingredients for Gluten free chocolate fudge....

vermont well water
potato starch, tapioca starch,
baking soda, sea salt, xanthan gum

and yes there is a CYA statement about the facility also using wheat, peanuts, and tree nuts. The chocolate chips are produced in a facility that uses dairy.

My daughter was able to actually eat a few (I hoarded most of them for myself) and she had no reaction. They are a crunchy cookie but I like some-types of crunchy cookies so I was good with that.

These also made me very sick. One time I ate 1-2 and was ok but when I ate a few more the next time (like 4-5) I was really sick the next day, Sad cause they tasted good too.
Some or all of them have gluten-free oat in them. Perhaps that is your issue?
