Hello!

The website (and I need to call) says that Entemanns has accurate labeling...I would just love to have a doughnut that my kids could eat! Does anyone have any experiences with their products?

I love opinions--I tend to be be extreme and paranoid, so let me know if any bad reactions are out there???

Thanks!!

At one time, I did call to confirm the online information about Entenmann's doughnuts, and they answered to my satisfaction. Our family's experience with Entenmann's doughnuts has been good - regular, cinnamon, powdered sugar, chocolate covered, crumb top, etc.

We eat entenmann's donuts and have not had any problems. I was under the impression that they labeled accurately. I hope we can continue to eat them. I'm not sure I can make a good donut from scratch.

I send them an e-mail and got a call back today. They do use shared lines, and shared facilities and they do NOT label as "may contain" or "made in a shared facility". therefore they are a BIG NO on my list.
She gave me the spiel she even admitted she was reading, "we practice safe guidelines set by the FDA" etc etc.....She even said if he has a severe allergy she would advise him not to consume them. I appreciated her honesty and told her that the "May contains" statement should be on their products and to pass it a long to someone important.

I don't post here much, so I don't know if there is a separate place for recipes. But my son is PA and we wanted donuts, and couldn't find any. Did you know you can fry Pillsbury biscuit dough (not Grands) in oil and roll in cinnamon/sugar and get great donuts? My parents did this all the time when I was growing up. We love them! I changed my avatar pic to a picture of them so you can see that they really puff up and are like real donuts. My son loves them (and so does my whole family). Especially when they are warm.

Thank you for posting this. I've thought about making real donuts, as my son loves them too, and we really miss them.

I called Franz, who also have boxed donuts. Their facility that makes the donuts is a nut free facility. Their cookies, which contain nuts, are made in a different facility. So, I am trusting this information, and very glad that my son has donuts he can eat!

I've never heard of Franz. Where do you live?

Oh, everybody doesn't have Franz? I guess it is a northwest company. I live in Oregon. Sorry to get your hopes up! :)

I just gave my son some entemanns last week. And no reaction. It was funny, my daughter really really wanted a doughnut and I told her that her brother couldnt have them. She asked "cause it might have peanut". "yes" she then said "just give him his epi pen" So I had to find something i felt was relatively safe. Took a chance and he was fine.
Not sure how much of a baker you are, but I have a good doughnut recipe. Truly from scratch. let me know if you're interested.
