Perhaps this was posted already, but for all of you gluten-free dieters out there, Starbucks is now carrying a gluten-free orange valencia cake with almonds! It's not half bad...very moist, but also very sweet...definitely a lot of sugar which may be bad for most of us. I couldn't finish all of mine, and saved it for later, but overall it's settling well. I think it may also be dairy-free, but not 100% sure of that since mine didn't come with a wrapper.

Anyway, just wanted to spread the word! Definitely made me happy!
20 y/o, diagnosed 6/2007. On Humira, no wheat or corn syrup, low sugar, low dairy.

Good to know! Boy, I have to avoid their coffees at all cost. Two times I ended up in the hospital after having some. The first time I didn't connect it. The second time I finally got it that I can't tolerate whatever they put in it. Who knows what kind of chemicals are in their coffee beans. Normally I can have coffee with Coffee Mate in it. But I can't do Starbucks at all.

My daughter works at Starbucks. I'll ask her to check out the ingredients to see about the sugar and dairy. I'll post if I get an answer, not sure when she is working again since she is in the middle of finals, so if someone else gets the answer sooner.....

Hi thanks for that info going slightly off the subject I went to a restaurant at the weekend near hatfield in uk and it cateres for the individual person with crohn's, celiac disease  ibs and other illnesses i was really impressed! they ask you what you would like to order and what you can't have i told them no gravy if it was made with meat fat but the waitress said "no problem the chef will make you an alternative". there was loads of deserts too gluten free, wheat free egg free the list goes on. We could do with more places to eat like this  as these diseases are becoming very well known i struggle most of the time on what to have to eat when eating out i will make this a regular place to eat from now on. Bev x

squattie, I had a frappacino from there before getting on a plane, pre diagnosis, and I spent the whole flight deathly ill - coming out of both ends. I haven't had a starbucks coffee, or really any coffee since. The only time I've had coffee since is a sip or two of hubby's decaf, or a sip or two when constipated lol.
