Wawa Iced Coffee

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

One of my co-workers was nice enough to bring in iced coffee to the office. I know their coffee is gluten free, but this was a pre-made mix with milk and sugar in it. Does anyone know if it is safe? I looked online and it doesn't give any nutritional information and there is no phone number to contact WaWa. I've emailed them, but I was hoping for an answer before my coffee melts.

Thanks,

Erin

GRRRRRRRRRRRR!!! This is the email I sent:

To: Wawa Customer Relations

Subject: Customer Relations:Other

Hello,

I was wondering what ingredients were in your iced coffee? Specifically, is there any gluten (wheat, barley, rye, or oats and their by products)?

I asked at the store and all that they could tell me was that there were milk and sugar products, but that they did not know what the preservatives or additives were. Because over 1 in 133 people have an autoimmune disease (Celiac Disease) and that prevents them from consuming gluten and roughly 5% of the population has gluten sensitivity, it would be extremely helpful if you would provide ingredient information about what your food contains.

Thank you,

Erin

Thank you for your interest in Wawa products. Our no sugar added iced coffee is made with sucralose, which is known in the industry as Splenda.

So, I have no answer. I am going to write back and see if they can be more specific. I'll keep you posted

    • Gluten is a protein smaller then blood,bleach does not kill it as it is not a germ. I would replace scratched pans. baking dishes, tubaware, wooden utensils, colanders, etc. Throw out crumby condiment jars and any non gluten-free spices and condiments. Cast Iron can be saved and some metal utensils by putting in your oven self clean cycle, 500F will destroy the protein. I always tell people easy ways to get started on new cookware, nordicware microwave cook ware, omelette makers, steamers, rice cookers, grilling plates (do not forgot the splatter cover), This way you can have a cheap and easy meals, a new crockpot and use crockpot liners is great for soups, I suggested a combo rice cooker/crockpot/steamer as a great investment. OH if you want a nice clean safe prep area/counter/eating place mat, look up freezer paper/butcher paper. I did a post on where to get it in bulk awhile back. But laying it out is perfects, and makes clean up a breeze. Foil sheets in baking dishes works great for a extra precaution but if you have any with baked on stuff or scratched look at getting new ones. PS took me over  months to start feeling much better. Sometimes the improvement is minor and you have to think back to the worst you had. It does improve but normally big changes are after a year.

    • It sounds like your hives resolved.  I had a six month bout with them.  Antihistamines really helped.  My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.  
    • My kid has Raynauds.  It freaks her classmates out.  She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state.  It is autoimmune.  She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws.   I have Hashimoto’s and celiac disease.  So, having multiple autoimmune issues is common.  
    • Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten.  Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc.  Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon.  Consider reading through the Newbie 101 thread under the “Coping section”.    You should see some minor improvement soon.  It does take time to heal.  Most  around here will say it takes a year!  
    •   When I woke up from my Endoscopy and was told I definitely had celiac disease the first thing I asked my doctor was do I need to get all new kitchen stuff? He assured me that I did not, and as long as my pots and pans and everything else was washed after being used to cook gluten I would have no problems. Well, I'm 10 weeks into my gluten-free diet and still feeling crappy as ever.  I have not been eating out unless the restaurant is 100% gluten-free (I'm lucky there are several near me).  I am very careful that everything I use to cook my food is thoroughly cleaned at home, but is this really enough?  Did you guys need to replace most kitchenware in order really avoid being cross contaminated?   I'm curious to get some opinions before I spend a bunch of money on new/separate stuff.  Thanks!
