It always saddens me that whenever we are in starbucks, my daughter can never have a treat like most kids. Today, I saw the packaged black and white cookies by the register and thought I would take a look at the label. Starbucks, although a big company, is never good at labeling. Out of my surprise, this one has an allergn
label, and it is safe! ( we deal with peanut only)
My daughter and I shared a package and it's such small thing that most families take it for granted, but we certainly had a great time hanging out there and enjoying our treats.

Thank you so much for posting about this! My husband wanted to stop at Starbucks today and my DS was upset he wouldn't be able to have anything. I remembered reading this and thought I'd check them out. They were labeled well and my DS really enjoyed them! We were all so excited to have found a new treat! Thanks again!!!!

Starbucks within a stores (target, mejir...etc) are not "real" Starbucks. You need to go to an independent Starbucks. Before I learn about this, I often wonder why the coffee does not taste as good there, so I asked a manger and found out about it.

Funny, I love the Starbucks within my grocery store. It tastes completely the same as the free standing stores.
Anyhow, is it my understanding that the cookie has appropriate cross contamination labeling on it? It doesn't merely have a 'contains' statement?

It has been quite a while since I asked, but the last time I did I was told at my local Starbucks that their baked goods were made in a bakery and their could be cross contamination at the bakery. They may have certainly changed since I last asked, but before I give my kids a cookie from Starbucks, I would check with the place that makes them.

I know so many people that only go by contains statements. i am not one of them. sometimes i think i am being too strict with my son but just because it doesnt say it was made in a facility with nuts doesnt mean that it wasnt. then you have to choose if its safe or not depending on if it was made in a different room, etc. i wish labeling was more specific but it isnt. i may let my son try it because he ate bakery cakes before and never had a problem, he even ate nutter butter cookies when he was little and was fine?? he threw up when he ate actual peanuts. i know he is allergic to peanut butter too im just saying that it was weird that he was able to eat that pb cookie. one boy in his class sent a note in that he is allergic to peanuts but not peanut butter???
