Hi Becca,
For me, it was only uncooked egg whites that caused a reaction, and it was hives around my mouth etc (discivered this when eating my mother's tapioca pudding when I was a child, in whcih she had "blended in" uncooked egg whites to make it fluffy as per the recipe.
My allegist often told me when the egg is cooked, the protein changes (which is why cooked eggs didn't cause me a problem)
A piece of good news.. by the time I was a teenager, I had outgrown this allergy. I hear this allergy is often outgrown, so I hope this will be true in your situation too.

becca, my son is the same as your daughter and Erik. Even had the same reactions as Erik, hives around the mouth. I do feed him cooked eggs and he has never had a problem, and my allergist didn't have a problem with it either. His RAST was very high, higher than pa sons peanut rast! So I do sometimes question whether he should be eating them. I guess it depends on who you ask.

In regards to the Krispy Creme Donuts my dd and dh eat them all the time.
Never had a problem or even a mild reaction.
WE always get them at the Stores that actually make them there never at the Super Market.
This is one treat we feel very comfortable with.
My dd is contact reactive and allergic to all nuts.

I told hubby all summer that we should take pa daughter to Krispy Kreme but we never made it the store.
Last week, hubby came home from work with a box of Krispy Kremes. PA daughter had 2 doughnuts after supper!

Oh I'm so happy to see this topic! There's a Krispy Creme being built in my town and should be opened by Christmas! I've only ever had Krispy Creme when I've been down south, but never knew if they would be good for my son. Yeah! A treat he can have!
So much for my diet though...LOL

We were especially glad to find out that Krispy Kreme is safe as we live in Winston-Salem, NC, where the company was founded and is HQ'd. So glad my DD gets to have something that is native to her birthplace. Isn't it funny the things for which we are grateful?
We stick with the original glazed, as they come straight off the conveyer and don't have any chocolate supplier issues. New donut holes are a good thing, too. Enjoy!

I recently noticed Krispy Kreme donuts in a case(their own brand on the case and no other products in it) at a local grocery chain store(Shaws in MA). Are these made at a Krispy Kreme shop then transported to tohe store, or does anyone know anything about this type of distribution?
I had always written off donuts, assuming they all had eggs. However, a recent visit to the Dunkin Donuts site proved me very wrong. Many of theirs do not have eggs, so I think Krispy Kreme could be the same.
I am not concerned about cross contact on eggs, since my dd does tolerate them cooked but we still avoid all eggs(per allergist advie). But Dunkin Donuts does have a few bakery items with nuts. I am hoping maybe we can try Krsipy Kremes from the grocery store if they come direct. Of course I need to talk to Shaws and Krispy Kreme, but wondered if anyone ate these ones? becca

I recently bought Krispe Kreme from a local supermarket. They were boxed, not in a case. I called the company and they told me if they were boxed in the company packaging they were safe. She told me she couldn't guarantee the safety of the cold cases were you get them individually in the store.
No problem with the donuts in the box.

Our KK stores are few and far between but our local Wal-Mart and even certain Canadian gas stations (PetroCan or Esso?) that have small convenient food section are now carrying KK donuts in 12 pack boxes. They have never arrived home with all 12 still in the box [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
I was told that the supply of these daily boxed deliveries is not coming from a local KK store but from a larger KK manufacturing location so the risk of cross contamination is greatly lessoned. I hope it is the same for you. We have always just stuck to the plane glazed ones verses worrying over who supplied the colored or chocolate sprinkle and whether that supplier was a safe one - I could eat a box of the glazed ones right this moment in time [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
