On-campus dining is rolling out new food options this summer.  

Einstein Bros. Bagels will be testing some exclusive items on UNF’s campus before the company decides whether or not they want to launch the items nationally.

“UNF Dining volunteered to be a test store since we thought it would be a great opportunity to help Einstein’s while providing our customers with an exclusive sneak peek,” said Michelle Di Polo, the director of dining services.

The exclusive items include:

  • Apples with Caramel Honey Almond Schmear / Apples with Peanut Butter
  • Veggies with French Onion Dip
  • Chicken and Cheese Snack Plate
  • Roasted Cauliflower with Black Pepper and Lemon Schmear
  • Bagel Chips w/ choice of Bacon Cheddar Jalapeno or French Onion Dip

Chick-fil-A also has a new addition to their menu, gluten-free buns.  For any student who wishes to have a taste on the new item will pay a $1.15 upcharge fee.

The wake of the new addition came after consumers requested more gluten-free options on the restaurants menu. The recipe for the bun includes “premium ingredients” that include molasses, raisins, quinoa and amaranth. The bun contains 150 calories.

When the bun is ordered, consumers will be required to assemble their sandwiches to help lower to chances of cross-contamination. This is because Chick-fil-A doesn’t have gluten-free kitchens.

Whether new or old, there is now an option for everybody to enjoy.
