I was on the Serious Eats site just now and they had a post about the new breakfast options at Starbucks.
Starbucks is now offering hot oatmeal as a breakfast option. I saw this at the SB across the street from my office but brushed the thought of it aside since I saw the word 'nut' associated with it.
But I may reconsider.
This photo from the Serious Eats site shows that the nuts come in a sealed packet. Plus they aren't even peanuts. I think I might actually be comfortable letting B have this. Whenever I take B to SB I always get her the prepackaged Madeleines, but I think I'll investigate this item a little further. It would be great to have a non sugary option for road trips.
Would you let your peanut allergic child eat these since the packets appear to be sealed? Is this any different from letting your child have a soft serve at McDonald's (where actual peanuts are packaged like this)?
