Starbucks Gluten-free Cookie?

Recommended Posts

WAH.... I work at Starbucks and have not heard of this cookie.... We are getting jipped. My manager is so sincere and cool about my allergy I will seriously push this cookie thing.. If it s out there she will find it for me. I live in Va. The pastries have been very hard for me .The smell of the donuts and the espresso brownie seriously is torture.... Starbucks has awesome pastries!

Our Starbucks has a gluten-free cookie and my brother says they're good. I haven't tried them but he bought me one. I can't find any information on them.

I believe the Starbucks in Woodstock, GA- where they had the cookie- doesn't have it anymore. My brothers friend works there and told us about it but I guess sales weren't good.

I always assumed these were unsafe, but in a recent thread some people were saying these were ok while others where saying they don't think they're ok.

I used to love these and would be so happy if I could get one with my tea again. Does anyone know for sure whether these are safe?

I contacted Starbucks and received an e-mail stating that the, "Marshmallow Squares DO contain Gluten."

***SOB*** Well atleast now we know. Thanks for contacting them.

Boo hoo, but that was my guess ... we'll just have to bring our own ... that's what I usually do, bring my own treat to have with my coffee ... they don't care.

Except for it is a whoopie pie if I understand correctly not a marshmallow square.......you might want to ask them about the whoopie pie and see what the results are for that.

I believe Starbucks has local bakeries make all its products from mixes they supply. This is certainly how it's done in my area, as my dh used to work in the bakery that made the stuff. This is a great bakery, much of its own range is organic, makes delicious bread and pastries etc - if you can eat wheat - but I think there is zero comprehension of or concern for cross contamination there. There is no way on earth we could allow our children with celiac to eat anything from there, regardless of whether it was supposed to be gluten free or not.

I really doubt that x-contam is on the radar in any average bakery. Flour is everywhere - on people's aprons, in the air - you open a sack of flour in a room and pouf! - immediately everything is contaminated.

Unless Starbucks is producing something specifically designed to be gluten free, and they can show that it is produced under conditions that make that possible - rather than in the bakeries that make the rest of their stuff - I personally wouldn't eat it.

Some of the Milwaukee area Starbucks are carrying a chocolate peanut butter whoopie pie. I asked a manager about it, and she knew nothing about the product. She referred me to their website nutritional information page. All it listed was the standard calories, fat grams, etc. It was over 400 calories, by the way. Even if it were gluten free, it is a pretty fattening snack. I agree that cc in a bakery probably would be a problem, unless someone else was making it for them.
