Caribou Holiday Drinks–Gluten-Free

One of the reasons I frequent Caribou Coffee as opposed to some of the other coffee store chains is their willingness to help a gluten-free customer out.  I have been emailing Caribou Coffee for gluten-free updates since I first started the gluten-free diet, as it has always been my java joint of choice. 



While it took a little longer this time around to get a response, I still received the answer that I so patiently waited to hear:

Hi Kim,
Thanks for the email!  We are so glad you enjoy Caribou Coffee and our products.  I would be happy to help answer your question and actually all of our drinks are Gluten free, including our holiday beverages.  I would just be careful when it comes to adding Cookie Crumb toppings.
If you have any other questions please let me know.  Thanks and have a great day!

In addition to the new caramel drinks, there are a few other Holiday drink options:

  • Salted Caramel Mocha – A rich, decadent mocha made with your choice of melted chocolate chips (dark, milk or white) mixed with buttery caramel, espresso, our unique salt blend, steamed milk and then topped with caramel whipped cream, chocolate chips and sprinkled with salt.
  • Salted Caramel Budino – Perfect for a holiday season of indulgence. We combine real, buttery caramel with espresso, steamed milk, cream and a dash of coarse salt then top with caramel whipped cream, caramel drizzle and a light sprinkle of salt.
  • Ho Ho Mint Mocha – The perfect holiday treat – we make a mint-flavored mocha with your choice of melted chocolate (dark, milk or white), steamed milk and rich espresso then top with whipped cream and candy cane bits. Ho Ho Ho!
  • Fa La Latte – For the holiday enthusiast – we combine our rich espresso with steamed eggnog then top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg. Happy Holidays!
