I'm not only PA, but I'm also all tree nut allergy. I just found out that their current "feature of the month" has "some sort of nut on it". I had been craving donuts for a few days & was talking to a friend who lives near the krispy kreme (Denver) & she said that they have a "walnut" donut right now...So I called & talked to "Mike" who said that he would check into it for me, if I come in tmrw he will have an answer. I read the website ingredients & it doesn't say anything about a nut, but if they are using chunks of candy bars (such as heath bars) on them, then this could be a problem!

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.

I know Krispy Kreme has a doughnut that [b]looks[/b] like it has nuts on it - has anyone confirmed if there is another that does have nuts?

Hi Anna Marie,
I rasied a thread called "Krispy kreme special doughnuts" in the Manufacturers Safe and Unsafe area with details about this new special donut (nut-free.. what looks like nuts is caramel) [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Hi Erik,
I've actually seen that doughnut and assumed that was what was being discussed - but we know what can happen with assumptions [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img] . Just wanted to make sure there wasn't another one.
BTW, we were in the drive through line and had already ordered when DH saw the picture of the new doughnut. He was ready to raise the roof if they had nuts. (and of course, we also would have cancelled our order)

OH MY!!!
I am just back from my first trip ever to Krispy Kreme... While in line, we were offered some very very fresh doughnuts!
I confirmed the absence of peanuts and nuts and splurged on a dozen for my kids. (including 4 with pumpkin !)
Tomorrow morning, my kids will eat doughnuts for the first time in their life!

Darthcleo, glad you (and your kids) are enjoying doughnuts. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
When I first found them in Toronto we were picking them up a few times a month. Now, they're just for *special treats* again.
BTW, there is another Krispy Kreme opening in Toronto soon. I saw it in the want ads - they are hiring new staff for a new store.

My son wanted to go and get more even before the last one was eaten. But I explained to him they were special treats. I also told him that they were the only donuts he can have, just in case there are donuts served at parties.
Both my kids (PA son, unknown daughter) just went beserk when they got their first taste.. Not too good a thing, since we are trying to stay away from junk food! LOL.. so much for that!

Still trying to remember where the new one in Toronto is. I checked the web-site and it's not listed. HOWEVER, it now lists THREE in Montreal.

In Toronto area, you can now pick up krispy kremes at Walmarts and Fortinos delivered fresh each day with date labelled on box! Easier access not only allows us to indulge in this high fat food, but at least also allows for more parents to bring in these donuts if they must bring donuts to school (with some more encouraging from us)!

Sorry about that Cleo. I assume you recognize the city names more than I do, but if there are two right in Montreal, only one of them is listed on the web-site.

Technically Greenfield Park and Laval are outside of Montreal (even after the megamerger). However Laval is close to me, even closer than the one in Montreal!

I just learned that a krispy kreme will be opening within WALKING distance of where we live!!
(Ok, it's not walking distance in the winter time, it's about 30 minutes walk, but way way way too close!)

There is another new Krispy Kreme. It is at Eglinton and Don Mills. There is a new Loblows Superstore, and on the first floor is a Krispy Kreme.

If they don't use nuts or nut products where would the nuts come from? My daughter and her Pa friends have eaten these and never had a problem.

I am PA and I eat them as well on an occasional basis (I'd eat them every day if they were a healthy food choice!)
It is good that Krispy Kreme does not use nuts or nut products as it gives me a place where I can eat the donuts. All of the other chains (Tom Horton's, Country Style, Coffee Time, etc) are unsafe since they use peanut/nut products.

Cher and toomanynuts,
this is a discussion that comes up every now and then - not just regarding Krispy Kreme, but there are a few other companies as well.
Some companies that label their product *peanut free* get letters from all their suppliers that the ingredients are peanut free, or they have sample products tested once or twice a year.
Krispy Kreme does neither (that we know of). Is it possible the wheat was purchased from a farm that also grows peanuts? I guess it is possible. Did the farmer go from the peanuts to the wheat and bring some cross contamination? I guess that's possible too. BUT, if I worried about all that - I wouldn't even be able to eat an apple.
They do not use peanuts or nuts, and that is within my comfort zone. However, everyone must decide for themselves.
Edited to add: A lot of people here eat them, and/or let their pa kids eat them. I don't recall anyone posting about a reaction - and probably people would, if they reacted.

I have never personally had Krispy Kreme donuts - they haven't arrived in Western Canada yet - but I came across the following information tonight on the Nu Connexions website which doesn't sound promising [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img] I thought I should share it.
------------------------------------------
Company:
Krispy Kreme (donuts and coffee) (information last updated April, 2003)
Food Allergy Safety Measures:
The Krispy Kreme web site does not say anything specific about food allergens and potential for cross-contamination. However, in a phone call to the Canadian head office, it was stated that they cannot guarantee peanut/nut-free status. Although no peanut/nut products are intentionally added as ingredients, the ingredient suppliers (many of which are in the U.S.) cannot guarantee peanut/nut-free status of their fillings or other topping ingredients. As a result, even the traditional glazed donuts may be cross-contaminated in the production process.

Hi Kate,
This is an issue that comes up occasionally. Krispy Kreme does not use any peanut products in their donuts. However, they can not [b]guarantee[/b] peanut-free status since they have no control over their suppliers.
I am not concerned about this, since almost [b]no other manufacturers[/b] will guarantee that their products are peanut-free. If we compile a list of manufacturers who guarantee that their products are peanut-free, it will be a very, very short list.
If we only ate products that had a "peanut-free guarantee", we would be hungry in no time at all (unless we decided to live on Nestle Coffee Crisp bars and Touche Bakery cakes). And we have to eat something.
As long as the facililty is peanut-free and they state that they do not use peanut products, I am comfortable with most products (with some exceptions of course)

Our first Krispy Kreme is opening in a few weeks. I have read all the posts and I'm trying to decide if I should let my dd eat them. Can you tell me if they make bagels there? She is sesame allergic, also. So, that would probably make up my mind for me.
Thanks,
Denise

Hi,
I'm going to check out Krispy cream. Glad to read the news I don't do dunkin. I'm curious thow our allergist ( Dr. Sampson in N.Y.) told us you need to call the company on artificial almond extract to make sure it's not derived from the almond in any way.
That some artificial almond extract is.
Anybody have had any problems? I can't use it (my comfort zone won't let me).
Thanks

The krispy Kreme places around Boston only make donuts. My son is also allergic to sesame and he ate the glazed without a problem and asks daily for more! I asked them to take them fresh off the line for me as the manager did said that the toppings on the caramel crunch had peanuts. I called another store and they told me that manager was misinformed!!???! Not knowing who to believe I stuck with the glazed that I actually saw her take off the line, so it didn't touch anything else.

None of the Krispy Kreme doughnuts that I have seen and eaten have any peanuts on them.
There is a new extremely messy caramel with a crunchy top - but it is not nuts of any kind.

kstreeter, I wanted to let you know that before I ever actually ate KK I also asked about sesame seeds. I was told they don't use them at all.
I called and spoke to a manager, and I also asked when I went in to the store.

I know this is an old thread...but my son had Krpispy Kreme at school today, the teacher called me, adn I just read all these posts yesterday, so I told him he could have a plain glazed donut(that's all they had anyways). So I got on the web site and emailed, asking for an ingredients list of my own(I was going to show the teacher actually) but they replied to me and said I could find it on the web site. I searched and found the donut ingredients(which my other 2 kids couldn't have because of all the milk) but...what in the heck is the toffee crunch made of on the one donut they offer?? I can see they use a gramhn cracker crumble, but what it the toffee crunch?? I just don't liek the sounds of toffee, makes me thing of nuts. Anyoen have any info?? Thanks so much!!! Chanda

I would call their 800 number. They were very helpful the two times I have called. Previously they told me they used/added no nuts to their products- we don't have one near us so I would call and make sure nothing has changed.

I called KK about a similar issue. I saw some kind of special flavor in a KK box at a grocery store that really looked like it had nuts sprinkled on it. When I called, they said that it's just a crunch topping but it does not have nuts and none of their products have nuts.
Unfortunately, lately they have made it hard to find ingredient listings. The prepackaged boxes in the supermarkets have them but you can't get a list from a KK store anymore or on line. I called about this and they were trying to make the ingredient list anonymous so that other companies would not steal their ideas (don't know if that's really the reason or not but that's what the rep told me).
