Oh happy day!
The Starbucks customer service representative just wrote me back that the Via Pumpkin Spice Latte packages are indeed gluten-free. The words “natural flavors” on the package always freak me out, but this time it looks like we are OK. I am still waiting to get confirmation that the natural flavors do not include dairy or corn and will update this post when I get confirmation, but I wanted to let you all know that, per Starbucks, you can indeed safely drink the Via.
They are not cheap and its not EXACTLY like the ones they made in the store, but due to my desire to eventually leave Starbucks and their desire to regain the use of their ladies room, I haven’t had one made in the store in years. So me and my flax milk have a date with a Via Pumpkin Spice Latte.
And people, think holiday gifts. I am serious. This is a good gift for a celiac.
Now if they can only do a via egg nog latte…
