Their GF red velvet cupcakes are excellent, but I would not recommend for those with Celiac or gluten allergies. I've gotten sick multiple times from their cupcakes and realized they can't be trusted re: cross-contamination (as reference, I eat Chipotle regularly and have never gotten sick from cross-contamination.) If they start taking GF more seriously I'd love to go back.

OMG. The best GF cupcakes you will ever have. They only have lemon blueberry and red velvet but they are literally the best GF cupcakes I’ve ever had. You can even special order cakes if needed! They are not dedicated GF, but they said they have a separate part of the kitchen and all separate cooking supplies for the GF products. They taste so much like regular that I feel guilty eating them! They also denote GF products with a G on top of them. I like that.

We tried the gf chocolate chip cookie and the gf blueberry lemon cupcakes. The cookie was way too sweet, you really only taste the sugar, but the consistency was great. The cupcake was fluffy and moist with fresh blueberries and the right amount of lemon.

The cupcakes are delicious but as noted by others there are few choices. If you have multiple food intolerance, there are no options. Staff did not seem knowledgeable or understanding that ingredient could be important past gluten.

The GF chocolate chip cookie, lemon blueberry cupcake, and red velvet cupcakes are all amazing! Possibly the best GF cupcakes I’ve tried yet — not dry at all. Prices are high but in line with non-GF prices.

They only carry gluten free red velvet and lemon blueberry gluten free cupcakes but they are both super tasty! You won’t notice they are gf because they are so good!

I very specifically asked for a GF cupcake and was assured it was. It was not and of course I got sick. I called and was told their version of “gluten free” is actually “gluten friendly”. Do not recommend!

SPRINKLES KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE DOING! This is the most normal cupcake I’ve ever had since I’ve discovered I’m sensitive to gluten. Finally something that doesn’t feel super dense when you eat it. It was so good I didn’t believe my coworker when he said it was gluten free I had to look it up for myself, because I thought he gave me a real one and I was abt to puke my brains out. They have only two flavors but they are bomb and the fact that they have more then one option is good enough for me. Thank you sprinkles:)

My boyfriend (who has celiac) and I have gotten cupcakes from various Sprinkles locations several times without him having any reaction. They have a few gf cupcake options (loved the lemon blueberry and red velvet) that we get on special occasions. About $5 per cupcake and delicious. We have never had any issue, but they do warn that cross contamination could occur.
