Looking confused the girl did what she was told and went and got one from that fridge, feeling embarrassed i said to the server "it's a pain being gluten intolerant", her reply was "don't be silly, we wouldn't sell them wrapped if we weren't allowed too, and you can guarantee it hasn't touched anything else". I think this is the first time someone has thoroughly understood without me having to explain cross contamination. We had an almost identical experience in Long Eaton too, so I presume from this that Starbucks train well when it comes to allergies.
Having heard other peoples views on Starbucks I know some people don't like their service but I can honestly say they have always been very knowledgeable, friendly and willing to find out the answer to anything I have asked, and definitely had no trouble getting hold of a wrapped brownie unlike some reports I have heard. If you are lucky enough to get your hands on a wrap make sure you try them they are delicious, but they do sell out fast!
