I have no idea. Have you tried their website, emailing or calling them? I have found the email responses I have received to be very helpful.

With all the flour drifting around in one of these shops even if the cocoa itself is gluten free it most likely won't be by the time you get it. Please use a great deal of caution if you decide to try it. Personally I wouldn't touch anything from there.

I worked at a Dunkin Donuts years ago as a teenager, and I still remember the baker opening a huge 30-lb bag of flour and dumping into an enormous mixer along with all the other ingredients. The cloud of flour that would rise up was almost like a mushroom cloud from an atomic bomb! I'm sure it drifted all around the store. I would be in the back cleaning up, then handling the donuts, then working the register, etc. I'm sure we were all covered with flour. I would go home at the end of the day and my grandmother would say, "you smell like a donut". I would be extremely cautious!

That is a very good point that I never even thought about. I guess I will be avoiding it!

I drink the tea and white hot chocolate from Dunkin Donuts all the time and have never had a problem.

Actually my cousin's husband owns several Dunkin Donuts. Most locations don't make their own donuts or baked goods. They are made at 1 central location and then shipped to all the others. More than often if there are a few locations within several miles of each other they are all owned by the same person, so it is easy to do this. In my cousins instance he has 1 building a few miles from all the locations where everything is made.

Not to say there isn't still a risk of cc just from having all the donuts and stuff around but I've never had an issue.

I drink D&D caramel swirl lattes all the time. I have not had a problem. Ths caramel they use is gluten free. The D&D in my area(CT) use a separate machine that dispenses the milk/espresso. Maybe where you are they still make the flavored lattes/coffee the"old way"on the counter. The donuts are not made on site here either. The hot chocolates are gluten free, but not for other allergies (dairy,corn), but they have a high fat content. I have gallbladder issues, so I get my drinks with skim milk. If I am in need of a "chocolate fix", I get a skim mocha latte. If you go to the D&D website, and look under nutritional info, everything is spelled out for you, including the top 7 food allergies. Good luck

Hi,

I too am recently diagnosed. I have learned quite a bit from emailing manufacturers. Some go out of their way to be helpful and others can't be bothered. Some, such as Ken's salad dresings, have online lists of different products that are gluten free. I love Dunkin Donuts hot chocolate, but would be afraid of contamination. I have made 2 mistakes as far as contamination goes, one with a toaster and one with peanut butter and became quite ill. Swiss Miss sugar free cocoa is gluten free. Try that its not bad, or make your own with gluten free dark chocolate.

good luck

    I recently started a medication that's known to cause hypothyroidism, and in me, it has. As I increased the dose, my TSH went higher, in an almost lockstep fashion. On the most recent set of blood tests, after my TSH had gone over the threshold, my GP decided to chuck a coeliac test in there since hypothyroidism can be linked to coeliac disease, even though it seems pretty much certain the hypothyroidism is caused by the medication. So essentially this test result was something neither he n
    TDZ, that is interesting that you mention weed-eating as coinciding with the start of your husband's rash, as about 12 years ago I had a possibly similar experience.  It was in the spring (meaning late May here in SC Alaska), and I was cutting the lawn.  Rather than bagging up all the lawn clippings, I would just take the filled bag off the mower, walk into the woods behind the house, and pull out the clippings with my hand and then scatter them around (so that they didn't just all rot and feste
Not a clue, other than normal eating. He ate a fair amount of bread, and pasta and pizza and such. Right before the massive outbreak in November, there was a peppermint/chocolate-drizzled popcorn that I got at Walmart, and it gave both of us horrible diarrhea, and within a few days he was covered with more rash than ever before. Might have been unrelated, but it's the only unusual thing that times out right for any causality. Otherwise, he wasn't eating anything different. The first thing t
