Keep the great ideas coming!
One addendum since this was originally published:
Many of our MSI visitors have shared ideas about offering gluten-free pastries. The Oatmeal and protein powder in the Protein Vanilla Latte do not contain gluten as an ingredient, but these items are processed on equipment also used to process gluten containing products and therefore we are unable to ensure that these products are gluten-free.
