Just called the 800#- girl who answered did not have much information but said she did have an allergen stmt for the multigrain doughnut that said "wheat, soy, egg and milk" as allergens. She could not answer if the pecan flavor was artificial- but with no nut warning I'm hoping it will be. It will probably take them a little while to have the information- she said they would be in their stores soon. They did take my last name and zip code this time, something they didn't use to do.

Our KK was sampling the whole wheat ones a few weeks back. YUCK! I am glad it was free because I would have been very disappointed had I paid for them!

I'm not sure if they're going to tell me! I got an e-mail back thanking me for my e-mail regarding the ingredients of their multi-grain doughnuts and saying they're glad to have the chance to assist me. Then they ask me to sign up for Friends of Krispy Kreme on their website. So I'm not sure if they're going to e-mail me again with the information or if they just want me to wait for it to come through on their Friends bulletins. If the e-mail was entirely generic, I'd assume it was just bumped back to me when they got my e-mail. But it mentions the topic I asked about.

Here's the response I got (I still think trying to make a donut into "health food" is ridiculous!):
Dear Mrs. XXXXX,
Thank you for your email letting us know that you were unable to view the
ingredients list we had provided. We appreciate the opportunity to assist
I apologize that the previous email was not in the proper file format. I
have provided the ingredients list below:
Multi - Grain Cake Doughnuts
Ingredients: Enriched bleached wheat flour (contains bleached wheat flour,
niacin, reduced iron, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), sugar,
water, vegetable shortening (partially hydrogenated soybean and/or
cottonseed oil), vegetable oil (soybean and/or cottonseed oil), bulgar
wheat, cracked wheat, coarse red wheat bran, rye flakes, rolled oats,
triticale, barley flakes, yellow corn grits, millet, soy grits, ground
golden flax seed, brown rice flour, buckwheat flour, egg yolks, leavening
(sodium acid pyrophosphate, sodium bicarbonate), soy flour, whey, nonfat
milk, dextrose, salt, cinnamon, monoglycerides and propylene glycol
monostearate (emulsifier), lecithin, sodium propionate (preservative),
maltodextrin, food starch modified, cellulose gum, natural and artificial
flavors, caramel color, enzymes, and BHT (to help protect flavor).
Glaze contains: Sugar, water, corn starch, calcium carbonate, calcium
sulfate, agar, dextrose, locust bean gum, disodium phosphate, sorbitan
monostearate, mono-and diglycerides, artificial flavor and salt.
Oat Crisp Crunch Topping contains: Rolled oats, unenriched wheat flour,
margarine (liquid soybean oil, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, water,
salt, whey, soy lecithin, soy mono and diglycerides, sodium benzoate
(preservative), artificial butter flavor, beta carotene, vitamin A
palmitate), brown sugar, sugar, natural and artificial flavors, sodium
propionate (preservative), TBHQ (antioxidant).
So this is the ingredient information that we have regarding the multi
-grain doughnut. We do not have any information that there is a pecan
variety at this time.
As well, just so you are aware while we do not currently have peanuts or nut
products in any of our doughnut varieties, we do offer ice cream in select
markets with which individually wrapped peanuts are an available topping
option. For that reason we cannot guarantee that our doughnuts are free of
nuts or nut derivatives. The final decision to consume Krispy Kreme
doughnuts will always rest with the consumer.
I apologize that we do not have more information regarding the Pecan variety
of multi - grain doughnut, but I do hope it does not come out at your local
store so you will still be able to enjoy Krispy Kremes.
Thank you again for your email, we appreciate the opportunity to assist you.
Best regards,
Gillian Anderson

What does that mean? I saw it on the news and Krispy Kreme doesn't know about it? WTH?

Yeah, the press announcement's on their website too..I think under media or press or something. I think the problem is- I was told it's not out in the stores yet...once they are selling them then I think they will have more information - which they told me was soon.

I went to our KK the other day and noticed that they now have a sticker on the door saying that their products are made in a facility that produces individually wrapped peanut toppings. I'm not yet sure how I feel about this. I do let me daughter eat at McDonald's, where there are nuts for salads and sundaes, so I'm not sure how different this would be. If they start making a donut with pecans on it though, I would definitely not be comfortable at KK anymore.

Wonder if McDonalds actually "produces" the peanut packages in the same plant though? I don't know why KK couldn't get them already packaged...I might have a different comfort zone if they have peanuts in their plants that they are in there packaging...and if McDonalds gets there's elsewhere prepackaged...interesting...

I also asked about the sticker. There are peanuts in sealed, individually wrapped packages that go on the new ice cream.

I'll check for the sticker at my KK in NC and will get back to you all
