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.

I Just heart that Krispy Kreme is planning on coming to New Jersey! I am very excited about that and hope that the franchises are sold quickly.
Move over Dunkin Donuts...there will be a new kid on the block. Hooray!

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...

Here is the e-mail I just got in response to a question about whether their products contain peanuts/nuts. This "knowingly" thing is an unfortunate retreat from their previous statements.
Thank you for your email regarding the ingredients in our doughnuts.
We appreciate the opportunity to assist you.
Often we receive questions from consumers like you about the likelihood of
peanuts in our products. For clarification, Krispy Kreme does not knowingly
add any peanuts or other nut derivatives to our doughnuts.
Ms. Bers, we hope that you'll find this information helpful and appreciate
the opportunity to provide assistance. At Krispy Kreme, we recognize that
our success is measured by the satisfaction of customers like you.
Once again, thank you for your continued support! We look forward to serving you again in the future.

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.
Best regards,
Nicole Megginson

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.)
