dit, There may be a chocolate donut your son can eat from Krispy Kreme. They e-mailed me their main donuts' ingredient list for my son who is also allergic to peanuts and eggs. I found one that had no eggs in it. Ask them for their list. Then enjoy the donuts.

Just in case a Krispy Kreme exec is reading this ... how about building a Krispy Kreme store in southeastern Washington State? (Specifically Richland, Washington?)
I guarantee that you'll get lots of customers!! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Hey i finally got to try the Krispy Kreme donut...it really does melt in your mouth! Of course we had to wait 1 hour in line to get them! I'll have to let my pa daughter try one tomorrow morning. Boy are they sweet though! This new location seems to be a huge hit...and causing quite a traffic jam around the store!

My daughter loved the donuts. She ate a few and enjoyed them very much, as we all did!
She asked me to get some more this week, but i told her not until the lines go down by a few hundred people (probably in a few months)! Its still crazy there! Has anyone else in Toronto tried them yet?

My brother and his wife drove from Scarborough out to the store in Mississauga (about 70km/42mi round trip) last weekend and bought 2 dozen, then divided them out among the family. We all thought they were great! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I was just curious, does anyone know why the Krispy Kreme website states "Our products may contain/have come into contact with peanuts, nuts or other allergens". Here's where I got it - [url="Http://www.krispykreme.com/nutri.html"]Http://www.krispykreme.com/nutri.html[/url]
That seems to conflict with everything you guys have said that the company tells you.

Good catch Lea.
I just called their 800# and spoke with Krista. She again told me that their donuts are safe for peanut allergic individuals. When I informed her that their web site stated otherwise she said "Oh my God- please hold". Then after a few minutes on hold, the customer service supervisor gets on the phone (his name is Kevin) and said that the web site is correct. Their donuts may come in contact with peanuts or other allergins. His basic message was, that even though they do not use any peanuts or nuts in the ingredients they could not guarantee the safety of their donuts to individuals with allergies. Nothing has changed in their manufacturing process.
It sounds to me like the lawyers are just trying to cover their butts.
My son really loves those donuts. You going to have make the decision based on our own comfort level as to whether you will continue to purchase from them. My feelings are, as long as Krispy Kream does not outright carry or use any ingredients that contain any peanut/nut donuts I will continue to purchase them for my son.

Yes, i think i agree with you b's mom on both counts...trying to cover their butts, and so long as they dont actually use any kinds of nuts on their donuts, hopefully their safe.
ps... if there is a possibility of trace amount from cross contamination from a raw material supplier, wonder if the deep frying affects the nut protein?

ok, i didnt get a response this time from krispy kreme, but then, i cant find the email i sent them last week in my outbox, so maybe it didnt go thru!
BUT, i did recheck their website to find on the ingredients and nutrional info on their donuts, now DO NOT have the nut allergy warning (changed from last week), yet do specify that their donuts may contain allergens!!!
Ok, again, trying to cover their butts, but at least they dont actually use any nuts in any of their products...therefore making it a comfort level choice.
Hey at least theyre not Tim Hortons with nuts in their products including peanut butter.
Imagine, how much more business they would get if they ever switched to nut free products!

I am so happy to say this, the Krispy Kreme in Scranton Pennsylvania is now peanut and nut free. On an earlier post on this thread the reply from corporate Krispy Kreme said there were only 2 krispy kreme's that have nuts and I was SO upset to see that the only Krispy Kreme anywhere near me was one of them. My husband made the trip to that Krispy Kreme 3 weeks ago (a 45 minute drive) to find out if they really did get rid of their nuts. He said they were very helpful and very excited to say that yes they no longer use peanuts or any nuts and have made sure everything has been cleaned properly and they even sent home a paper krispy kreme hat for my daughter! She's only 18 months and a bit young for sugary sweet donuts, but it sure is nice to know they are there for the future and also so that we know we can enjoy a safe treat around her without having to worry about touching her after eating it! (we stay away from anything that may be cross contaminated for fear touching or kissing her may cause a reaction) YEAH KRISPY KREME IN SCRANTON PENNSYLVANIA!!!

I was in the Krispy Kreme store in Mississauga, Canada (early one Saturday) with no line ups. I specifically asked the person working behind the couter about their product and if it is peanut free. He said that they can "guarantee" five generations back that the product has not come in contact with peanuts. Took some home to my PA son and he gobbled it up!!! I understand they will be opening more in Ontario very soon.Klara

Anna Marie, the Krispy Kreme donut store in Mississauga is located at: 5920 Mavis Road (south of Hwy 401) 905-826-2166. Havent been there in a while, but i did hear the huge lineups are gone so it should be fairly convenient. Take Hwy 401 West to Mavis, go south (left) and its on your right hand side (west side). Bon appetite!

So, is this just in the Krispy Kreme stores, or does this go for the boxes of KK products in my local grocery stores (like Giant Eagle, Kroger, WalMart, etc...)?
I'm going to read back through all the posts real quick here to see if I missed something.

Krispy Kreme donuts are already here in NJ. They don't have any franchises open yet, but most of the Exxon mini marts carry them. My PA son just loves them.

Thanks redtruck.
Bribed hubby and actually got out there last night. We live in Scarborough. Line up looked worse than it was. Only took about 20 min. and I was out the door.
They were giving out doughnuts in the line up, but old fears die hard. I didn't dare eat one til I got home.
Checked there web site and no allergy info anymore. I called the TO number, and spoke with Kevin. He was on-line and tried to direct me to the correct page when he suddenly went - hey, what's this? This is new.
The page now talks about calories... (If that's your concern - don't eat doughnuts ;o))
Thanks everyone. Time to get back to eating...

Picked up a batch of doughnuts last night. There was a sticker on the box.
New Krispy Kreme opening at Hillcrest Mall, Richmond Hill, in September 2002.
Regarding the *knowingly add* almost all companies want to cover their behinds. If they guarantee peanut free they can be sued. If you buy a vegetable that someone rubbed with a peanut it could be contaminated. Nobody can give us guarantees. They can only do their best to keep an area peanut free, and advise us if there are peanuts there, or on the line. Most companies these days are referring to themselves as *allergy aware*. Then I question them to find out how aware. Then we all have to settle our own comfort levels.
Hope my Northern Neighbours enjoy the new store.

Here is the response I got to my question about why they say they do not "knowingly" add peanuts/nuts. I think it comes down to a question of suppliers of ingredients, which, I have to think, would be true for almost any manufacturer/restaurant.
---------------------------------------------
Thank you for asking a very thoughtful and interesting question about Krispy Kreme doughnuts, which are prepared from time-tested recipes and according to very precise specifications to assure the highest
standards of quality control.
To address your question, we do not add ingredients containing nuts or nut
products to our doughnuts. However, we cannot guarantee that our suppliers
do not use them in their factories or processes or that all items supplied
to us are free of nuts and nut products. In addition, we may use nut flavorings in certain beverages.
We appreciate your giving us an opportunity to assist you, and we hope you will continue to enjoy Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

Krispy Kreme has announced that they will be building a new store in Kitchener, Ontario.
(Also just a reminder from another poster that some Krispy Kreme donuts that are sold in grocery stores may not be safe because they are packaged by the stores in areas where they could come in contact with peanuts or nuts.)

Also, you can warm them in the micro the following day (or two days) and they'll be fresh again [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
Now, highway 40 sounds familiar [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] I'll copy out the rest for DH. He travels to Montreal a bit on business and knows the area around the airport quite well [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

I called them on the phone the other day and they told me... they told me that they don't knowingly use any peanuts or nuts in the making of their donuts, but that they couldn't guarantee the flour. They said the flour might have been processed in a facility with peanuts, and that it was about as safe as any flour you'd buy at the grocery store.
I don't remember who I talked to but it was a very nice person at the other end of their 800 number. Personally I'd feel safe buying donuts from a Krispy Kreme store but would be reluctant to buy some from a grocery store.

Hi,
I'm from Montreal, and a Krispie Kreme just opened about a month ago near my area.
When we asked if they were peanut-free, they told us that they don't have any nuts or peanuts on site but that they couldn't guarantee the ingredients coming from their suppliers. I'm thinking of calling them again just to find out who their suppliers are and then contacting them. I feel that their plain sugar glazed doughnuts should be safe but I want to be absolutely sure.

Another disconcerting response from Krispy Kreme. Has anyone been able to get to the bottom of their disclaimer - can we find out which ingredients they seem to feel might possibly be cross-contaminated with peanut and WHO their suppliers are - so we can contact them directly? It seems that no matter how I ask the questions, they still give the same nebulous response. Anybody have better luck?

I think that this is similar to many manufacturers, as in they have a peanut free facility and do not use peanuts in their products, but they can not give a 100% guarantee.
I don't think there are many companies that will give you a 100% guarantee that the products are peanut-free. Nestle Canada has a few chocolate bars with this guarantee, and there are a few other products (Touce Bakery, Bransons Bakery) that give a 100% peanut-free guarantee.
But in general, I have found it rare for this to be the case. Many manufacturers will say they do not use any peanuts in their facility, or that they have a peanut-free facility, but I have noticed that there are not many who will give you an absolute 100% peanut-free guarantee.
