Gluten-Free Discovery

On a recent trip to Starbuck’s, something caught my eye.

No, it wasn’t the fact that the calendar had barely reached November, and they were already serving hot beverages in holiday cups.

Really?  It's not even Thanksgiving!  I do love the holiday cups though.

Nope, I wasn’t salivating over their pumpkin scones, the most missed item from my gluten-eating days.

It was that little basket in the corner where Starbuck’s keeps their pre-packaged, and sometimes, gluten-free snacks, like Lucy’s Cookies.  In that little basket I noticed the Food Should Taste Good chips that I love so much.  But there was something new sitting next to the sweet potato chips…a new variety of Food Should Taste Good chips: “White Cheddar.”  How have I not seen this flavor before at Kroger or Whole Foods?

I then looked closer at the bag and saw Exclusively Made for Starbuck’s on the label.  Genius.  Marketing genius.  So of course, I bought a bag.

While the Sweet Potato Chips will always be my favorite (now that they no longer make cinnamon), I must say the white cheddar were a nice afternoon snack and a good change to my usual salty snacks of choice.  Paying $1.50 for a small bag of chips is a bit pricey, but since the white cheddar are only being sold at Starbuck’s, my guess is that I won’t find a more economical price.


  1. Thanks for the heads up on these! I can’t wait to give them a shot. I must say I’m quite pleased Starbucks is at least offering a few gluten free snacks these days.
