"The Marketplace Gluten Free Guide is great, why is there not one for The Tiger Cooler?"
We hear you, and we're working on it - look for a Tiger Cooler GF guide by the end of the month!
"Does the homestyle section at the market place ever have gluten free foods? I've noticed that there is never a (gf) label used there. As the market place's most cost effective meal option, it would really be nice to have a gluten free option available - especially since there is a vegetarian option (which is usually a choice, not a medical condition) available literally every single day."
We've just begun labeling items that are GF at the Homestyle Station. Many of our recipes are already gluten free, and we want you to know. Others just require a little tweaking, and we're gradually making some changes. That said, at this point we're not able to offer an additional, gluten free option at homestyle every meal. Look for GF entrees at other stations at those meals - there's always one or more alternatives.
"I really enjoy having foods and flavors I have never tasted before at the Meatless Monday Indian food station. However, to make it suitable for a wider range of people, I think you should keep the hot spices to a minimum in the food. You could serve it with optional condiments students can add on the side that are really hot if some people want it spicier than the average student."
Thanks for letting us know - still tweaking!!!!
"In one of your responses last week, you wrote: ""While most customers do not elect to have milk added into their packaged cereal at the Cooler, preferring instead to purchase bottled milk to add at their convenience, we will add the milk at no extra charge by request.""
I had no idea that students could ""elect to have milk added into their packaged cereal at the Cooler."" Can you please tell me where this is advertised? Nobody at the cashier has ever mentioned this to me.
In either event, can you please increase signage advertising this option - as well as the option to add bottled milk at no extra charge? Offering the option ""by request"" doesn't seem fair if students aren't informed and don't know that the option ever existed int he first place. "
We added a sign at the Tiger Cooler cereal stand: "Got Milk? Just let us know and we'll add it for you". Note that this will be milk from the coffee counter, not bottled milk :-)
"I really enjoyed the specialty salad today (Friday, Oct 5)!! It was very unique and flavorful! However, I prefer having pure spinach as the base of salads rather than the mix."
That was a new salad - Israeli Cous Cous with Eggplant and Cinnamon. Glad you liked it, and your comment about the spinach is noted!
