I was just wondering, now that Krispy Kreme has appeared to change their statement to say something to the extent that they don't add peanuts or nuts but they cannot say for sure their ingredients are not contaminated somehow, would you still eat them? We have let dd have a couple on occasion but now I am scared to let her have them. I was under the impression before that they knew they were 100% pn and nut free, but now it sounds like they are not willing to say that at all. How do you feel about Krispy Kreme now? Would you still give them to your children?

I think they are the same as most other manufacturers. Very few manufacturers will give an absolute 100% peanut-free guarantee (even if they don't use peanuts).
I still eat Krispy Kreme myself since they do not use peanuts in thir facility (even though they can't give the 100% peanut-free guarantee)

Actually, this is the statement they always made. They haven't changed it.
Yes, I do still eat them.

Can you buy Krispy Cremes at a local supermarket or just at their own locations?

You can get them at the market, but I have noticed "may contain" statements on some of the ones at the market.

If they are "manufactured by your local Krispy Kreme" then they should be peanut free. I think the may contain part comes in when they are "distributed by." I always check for the "manufactured by" on the bottom of the box when buying at the grocery.

KK opened their firrst stores in australia a couple of weeks ago.
Both the Aussie and American KK websites ([url][/url]) state Quote:Our products may contain allergens.
They list the ingredients in detail, but not cross contamination allergens.
ALL the dough mix (including that used out here) is made in the same two plants in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and Effingham Illinois, so I can't see how the local store cooked ones are more or less safe than others.
Anyway, I guess we've done without them this long there's no point having one now!

You know, Krispy Kreme are not that good anyway. They are mostly air.
