Good news! I just got off of the phone with the corporate office of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, because their ingredient list was rather vague, and was told that Krispy Kreme no longer carries peanut topped doughnuts or any other peanut product. Here is a link to their FAQ page [url="http://www.krispykreme.com/faq.html"]http://www.krispykreme.com/faq.html[/url]
Here is their ingredient list:
INGREDIENT INFORMATION
The only animal byproducts used in our doughnut are eggs (whites and yolks) and dairy products (including milk, butter, yogurt, whey, nonfat milk and nonfat whey). Our doughnuts are cooked in 100% vegetable oil shortening (partially hydrogenated soybean and/or cottonseed oil). All monoglycerides, diglycerides and enzymes are vegetable based. The lecithin we use is soy based. We also use wheat in our doughnuts, including bran, germ, gluten, starch and flour. Our products may contain allergens. To get further information about our products call us at 1800 4KRISPY.

Before getting doughnuts for my children I am going to talk to the local manager just to make sure. This may be a good thing for my kids...but a bad thing for my thighs!

My son has eaten the donuts and I was told that there is only egg yolk no egg white. He hasn't had a reaction. Are you sure about the egg white? Even on the store bought krispy Kreme box it only says egg yolk.

I copied the ingredient list directly from the Krispy Kreme website. I don't buy Krispy Kreme doughnuts in the grocery store because we have several franchises in our town. You can go to the URL that I provided in my first post and view the nutritional information that is listed or call the corporate office. It is possible that the doughnuts that are packaged for grocery stores are processed differently.

How were you able to get the ingredient list? When I click on the FAQ under the question of how to get the ingredients, it gives a page that provides a choice for nutritional info for KK US or KK Canada. The Canadian site gives ingredients but the US site only gives nutritional info (but not the actual ingredients).
I was trying to do this because, believe it or not, my son's school was giving me a hard time because all items brought to school for the purpose of sharing with other students, must be sealed with an ingredient label. I can't actually get KK to provide the ingredients. I suppose I could use the Canadian one!

After you click on this link:
[url="http://www.krispykreme.com/faq.html"]http://www.krispykreme.com/faq.html[/url]
scroll down until you see a link for the nutritional page in one of the answers to the FAQ....click on it....the ingredient list is the first page that pops up....then there are two options that you can click on...US Nutritional Page or Canada Nutritional Page.
Hope this helps.

Yes but only the Canadian Nutritional page gives ingredient information. The US one does not. I have tried it several times. It only gives the nutritional information such as calories, fat grams, etc.
