I loved Sprinkles before I knew I have celiac. Went for the first time post diagnosis and while they make the cupcakes in a shared kitchen, they do prepare the GF ones in a different part of the kitchen, store them on the top shelf of the display, and assured me they change gloves. Not many options, but there were two today! Haven’t tried it yet, but feeling optimistic. Update: did not get sick last time, but have since not felt comfortable getting them again due to being right next to the vegan cupcakes and being informed they are not prepared separately from glutinous cupcakes.

They have a small printed sign that their kitchen that they make GF cupcakes in are not gluten free. While the GF cupcakes are not touching other cupcakes, they are still stored adjacent in the same space and it’s very possible small crumbs travel in the space.

Cupcakes themselves are very very delicious.

I am non-celiac, with wheat allergy (+more), and I had a mild reaction from eating their cupcakes, which may or may not be due to wheat.

Was excited to go here based on the reviews but got sick worse than I have in recent memory afterwards. All I can think is that they mislabeled the cupcake or there was some serious cross contamination. Probably not a usual event based on the reviews but celiacs be wary.

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.

The gluten free cupcakes were delicious but I was very sick from them. If you're celiac or very sensitive, stay away from their cupcakes

NOT CELIAC SAFE!!!! I am celiac and my boyfriend and I split a gf lemon blueberry one and a gf red velvet one. It was stupid of me not to ask about cross contamination, but I’ve had their gf cupcakes years ago and it was ok. Reading other comments, I see people are saying that they don’t use separate utensils or equipment and keep gf cupcakes in the same case as other cupcakes. I didn’t ask sprinkles about it myself but I totally believe it based on how sick I am. I was in the bathroom all night and am unsure if I can leave the house today because I’m so sick. They taste amazing but I won’t be eating these again at any location!!!
