Adios, Frappuccino –

Can someone please explain to me why Starbucks, the folks who just got on the Gluten-Free snack wagon, would add GLUTEN to their new Frappuccino blend?  Melissa from Coffee City did an article about the issue – thank goodness, because my local barista has no idea what the hell is happening. “There shouldn’t be any Read more…
