For more than 30 years, DoubleTree by Hilton guests have enjoyed a signature welcome chocolate chip cookie at check-in. Now, this tradition is also accessible to more than 32 million Americans with food allergies thanks to the introduction of an allergy-friendly option.

Here are all of the yummy details.

Being greeted by warm chocolate chip cookies at check-in is a signature perk of the DoubleTree by Hilton brand. Those with food allergies or intolerances, on the other hand, had to ignore this custom —until now.

Today, DoubleTree by Hilton is introducing a new allergy-free soft chocolate chip cookie that will be available along with its signature chocolate chip cookialmost 400 United States locations.

This new allergy-free version is being produced by Partake Foods, a leader in allergy-friendly packaged foods. The cookie is vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO. Plus, it’s free from the top 9 allergens:

  • Dairy
  • Eggs
  • Fish
  • Peanuts
  • Sesame
  • Shellfish
  • Soy
  • Tree nuts
  • Wheat

The brand’s goal for this change is to make more travelers feel welcome and included. “We hope the introduction of our allergy-friendly option, alongside our original cookie, reaffirms DoubleTree by Hilton as a place where human moments happen that make travelers feel welcome while away from home,” says Shawn McAteer, brand leader at DoubleTree by Hilton.
