Awesome gluten free muffin. Let them know that you have celiac disease, and they will put on a glove before they serve it to you. It is in a case with other items, but they keep it far separated so nothing is touching anything else. And, every time I’ve been here, they always have the gluten-free muffins in exactly the same place,

Great food but not too celiac friendly. Just because it gf doesn’t mean it should be placed next to gluten. People don’t care about cross contamination.

One huge issue I have as a Celiac is companies using my autoimmune disease to market products to orthorexics and ignorant people who wrongly assume "gluten-free" means "healthy" while simultaneously leaving celiacs like me being able to safely eat.

With the prevalence of online food ordering apps, it's so dangerous for companies to advertise their product as "gluten-free" while simultaneously taking zero precautions to make sure that food is actually gluten-free and uncontaminated.

If a friend knows you must eat gluten-free, they might pick this up for you, thinking that it's safe because it comes marked from a legitimate "crunchy" business. Purchasing on a food app, celiacs might wrongly assume the food is safe to consume because the business is advertising it as "gluten-free."

Why do corporate chain restaurants not understand cross-contamination when it comes to gluten? At this location , the marked "gluten-free" muffins are on the same plate and touching gluten-containing muffins! As a Celiac, I can't spend money on contaminated food. One crumb of gluten can cause intestinal bleeding. Celiac disease is not a wheat allergy, it's an autoimmune disease and the only treatment is eating 100% gluten-free.

Are businesses so cheap that they can't afford a separate plate with cover and new tongs for the gluten-free muffins?

I can't imagine that restaurants would put bacon on the same display plate as tofu marked as "vegan." I can't imagine they'd use verbiage to denote that their product is "shellfish free" and put it on the same plate as lobster claws. That's the equivalent of putting gluten and gluten-free muffins on the same plate in a display case.

You wouldn't market a product as "diabetic-safe" and make it where it was only safe for dieters, not actual diabetics.

"Gluten-free" is a term that celiacs rely on to find safe to consume food, not a marketing term to carelessly slap on products without care to cross-contamination.

Please either sell gluten-free products responsibly, or stop marketing them as such.

Ordering at the counter can be a little hectic, and it’s sometimes hard to hear. I’d recommend ordering online for takeout or delivery if you can. They’ve added a few more gluten free options over the years.
