Please be advised that Starbucks has decided to end the expanded Star-K Kosher information program.
Consumers are advised that effective immediately, the Star-K can no longer vouch for the Kashrus of many of the items previously listed as recommended at these stores.
Items no longer approved include Frappuccinos, Mocha and Caramel Sauce.
All recommendations for unflavored coffee are still the same.
The Star-K webpage has been updated to reflect those changes. Kosher consumers should visit the Star-K Starbucks list at https://www.star-k.org/articles/kosher-lists/1709/starbucks/.
(* Note: From Kosher Information Bureau: Please note that Kashrus agencies continue to recommend Starbuck’s (and other) unflavored regular and decaf coffee at Kiosks, such as supermarkets, amusement parks etc. In addition, it is agreed that upon necessity one can buy the plain coffee from any Starbucks.)
