Newsflash: New Starbucks roll with Gluten Free Genius bread!

Do you remember a few years ago when Starbucks had a good range of Gluten Free sandwiches made with Genius bread. Then they disappeared. Then one or two reappeared and then they disappeared again?

Well the good news is it looks like the range is back – this time it’s starting off in the form of a roll. But not just any roll. No it’s a gluten free seeded brown roll by Genius bread.

Instead of some of the weird and wacky fillings they had in the past, Starbucks have decided to play safe and launch with  ’Gammon, Mature West Country Cheddar & Coleslaw’. It also contains red onion for a bit of punch and seasoned free range mayo. And even better news is it’s available in all Starbucks throughout the United Kingdom & Republic of Ireland. 

So it looks like there’s at least one place we Coeliacs can dive into at lunchtime and grab lunch on the go at. Yes it’s bound to be pricier than making your own lunch but if you are having a lunch meeting or have forgotten to pack your lunch it’s perfect. Especially as there’s a Starbucks on every street corner nowadays or so it seems. Whereas hunting high and lo for a Marks and Spencers or Waitrose is tricker, even trickier is actually finding one that actually sells their own brand gluten free sandwiches, or that actually has any left on the shelf as they always order so few!

PS Dairy Free  & Vegan Coeliacs…

We know that this filling won’t be for you. However, remember that pester power does have an effect. So if you think you can devise a filling for Starbucks that is tasty, dairy free / vegan then get tweeting and emailing Starbucks:

Starbucks will be launching a new filling in the Summer so fingers crossed you may well influence them ; )
After all if you don’t ask you don’t get!
