I created an account just so that I could reply to this message.

I had a severe allergic reaction to a Caramel Brulee Latte today. I am allergic to wheat, not all gluten, and I contacted Starbucks when I couldn't find any ingredient information. They said that there may be cross-contamination in their specialty coffee drinks and will expedite the information to the supervisors so new bulletins will be posted in all of the stores.

I am covered in hives and am having trouble breathing. That should be a warning enough to all of you gluten-free's to stay away from the Caramel Brulee.

Best wishes!
