I didn't see a thread like this anywhere. For all us Starbucks whores, post the vegan friendly choices available & your location :) I tried looking online to confirm a few things but not much came up.

Victoria: bakery items-ginger molasses cookies, multigrain bagels. Snack foods-mixed salted nuts.

That's about all that I know of, I wish there was more to choose from. I heard that the oat are and fruit & oat bars might be vegan but I cannot confirm.

Post away!

There is a thread here about Starbucks chai: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=6469&hilit=starbucks%2A

And this one about the different syrups you can get: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=5174&hilit=starbucks%2A

Our local Starbucks have vegan cookies and lots of salted nut snacks. I don't know if the bagels are vegan though.

At Australian starbucks you can get yummy dark chocolate. That's the only non-coffee thing I've bought there.

The ones around me have lots of almonds and raw blueberry snack bars, etc, but some of those contain honey. I used to work at a Starbucks and have never seen the Chai concentrate without honey :( I even got all excited when I read some places had it and thought maybe they'd changed their recipe, but I had some employees check it for me and no luck.

careful with bakery goods! if you don't check online for your postal/zip code, the information might not be correct, as they are baked regionally with variations in the product. in nanaimo, the oat bars are absolutely not vegan - butter and oats and sugar. so gross. neither is the ginger molasses cookie. the blueberry bar is vegan though.

I've never ordered food from S'bucks. I often look in their case of baked goods, and since nothing is labelled vegan I don't bother.

I think the oatmeal is vegan though.

Dang, thankfully I have never tried the oat bar as I was suspicious that it would be vegan, the ginger molasses cookies however...I have consumed many :(

They were out of blueberry bars so I have a low fat fruit bar this morning :)

Boston area Starbucks have started having little fruit snack thingies. They're really tasty, and ingredients are vegan! (nice short ingredients, too, and stuff I can pronounce!)

Otherwise, I just stay away from the bake case. I used to LOVE Starbucks treats, and I know if I could eat them again, it would be a bad situation, haha.

If I recall, it was declared a while back that the Frappuccino base is vegan, as long as you don't get the light version. So a soy Frapp is vegan, which is bad news for me, but great news for my taste buds.

Besides the light Frappuccinos, also stay away from the Java Chip ones, and be sure to ask for no caramel drizzle on the Caramel ones.

The UK has a falafel panini which is vegan and dark chocolate bars which are as well. I don't think any of their baked goods are vegan.

Yesss, soy green tea frappuccino is my fav, though it is not often listed on the menu.

Also remember to say "No whip" because their whipped cream is dairy-based, and they may not ask you if you want it or not.

If you have a Starbucks card and register it online, after you purchase 5 drinks with it, you get a free soy *upgrade* on all future drinks purchased with the card. I know it seems wacky to keep putting money on a Starbucks card, but they do charge like 50 cents extra for soy.

They also send you a coupon for a free birthday drink!

Whoa, that is good to know! I always get a little flash of irritation when I get that extra charge for soy. It's 60¢ at the one I normally go to.

Yep, I got the Starbucks card for this reason and regularly reload.

Plus, every 15 or so drinks, you get a free drink!

You also get free syrups, if you like syrups, and you get free refills of drip coffee in-store.

I feel like a corporate hors d'oeuvre every time I reload my card, but I don't care. I enjoy not getting charged for soy, and getting free drinks and whatnot!

You do have to buy a certain number of drinks a year to retain your status (Gold if you want the free drink every 15 drinks or Green if you just want free syrups or soy (just remember they only give you certain syrups free so if there is an unusual one ie black cherry it costs extra).

Mocha coconut is amazing! It tastes like liquid samoa, from back in the day when I could still have Girl Scout Cookies.

It is the most wonderful thing ever and I have to resist them constantly.

More verification than the link posted above your post?

Anyway, several of the frappuccinos at Starbucks are vegan, if made with soy milk in lieu of cow milk and without the whipped cream on top. One of those is the brand-new mocha coconut frappuccino… I’m enjoying it right now and it’s absolutely delicious.


Leave the whipped cream off and you're good to go.

Same here. You also get a free drink if you buy a pound of coffee with the SBux card (and, whether or not you have a card, you get a free cup of coffee if you bring in an empty pound bag of coffee).

I got a Starbucks gift card for my birthday and signed up for the rewards card thing a week later. They still send me the postcard for the free birthday drink! And when I went to use it, I ordered a grande and the barista was like dude, get a venti...its free! :)

interesting! i searched on starbucks.ca, so not sure if that's why it was different. i also searched my city, i think..

eta: if they are vegan, my life will improve so much! : D haha
