Wawa for Gluten-Free Finds

Wawa has everything!  Gas, quick snacks, coffee, hot meals.  If you’re from the area you probably share my affinity for Wawa.  Best of all, for the gluten-free eater, you can go beyond the bag of chips for a quick snack.  They offer hot foods like gluten-free chili, deli meats, and tasty drinks.

Below is what the response I received from a Wawa representative regarding gluten-free food in their stores or go to the Quick Gluten Free References page:

  1. Are your new specialty cappuccinos and lattes gluten free?

  2. I used to work at Wawa and there’s absolutely no way that the deli selections are safe (due to cross-contamination). It’s good to know about the grab and go items, but I wouldn’t trust anything from behind the deli counter.

    • Thank you so much for your insight and experience. Cross contamination is always an issue with all gluten-free foods, and whenever considering foods that are not personally prepared I always recommend asking how it was processed and if cross contamination is an issue. If there are any doubts I pass on the option.

  3. I just checked their site…looks like they have changed ingredients on at least one item…their chili now contains wheat. :( And, unfortunately, they don’t list allergens for all of their items…so one can only assume they contain gluten.

  4. Wawa Chili contains soy sauce, which contains wheat.
