I wrote to Krispy Kreme Donuts because they are planning on opening stores in our Syracuse NY area. I've heard that they were peanut free, but wanted to make sure. Here is the response I got:

"Thank you for writing us. All of our company and franchise stores' products are made 100% peanut and tree nut FREE. We have taken into consideration that there are people out there that could suffer serious consequences if they ingest any of these ingredients. Therefore, in our preparation of mixes, as well as the entire doughnut making process, we are very careful and aware of the factors that could cause cross contamination. We avoid this at all costs to provide the public with a safe, tasty treat. Please let us know if you have any additional questions."

What I didn't expect was that they included an entire ingredients list for all their donuts. I was amazed they would do that- we know how manufacturers can be. I will try to post the ingredients- it's very long and I have to figure out how to do that. Anyone can email me though and I can always check it out for you. Take care, Kelly

Yes, and I wish with all my heart they were as ubiquitous as those Dunkin Donuts shops. In all of Chicago we have 1 Krispy Kreme and about a million DD. Sigh.

Any chance of a Krispy Kreme coming to Massachusetts?! That would be great. They sound delicious! There seems to be a Dunkin Donuts on every corner just in my neighborhood alone!!

I was psyched to read in last night's newspaper that there will be 16 Krispy Kremes opening up in New England (RI, CT, and MA.) in the next five years. One of the first to open this year will be in Cranston, RI. The franchise owners of these 16 Krispy Kreme stores also owns Burger King and some of the donut stores will be in the Burger King.
Does anyone know if the pnt/nut-free policy is a corporate policy or is it up to the individual franchise owner to be pnt/nut free????

My grocery store (Giant in MD) sells Krispy Kream donuts. I didn't know they were so nut-aware. I have thought about buying them before but always passed them up because I didn't know. Thanks for the post!

You can't throw a rock where I live without hitting a Krispy Kreme shop. They are delicious! However, I would caution everyone to check for themselves if this product is safe. I still will not let my p.a. child eat their doughnuts because I could not get a guarantee that it was a nut-free product. When I talked to the manager of the closest one, he scratched his head (was not familiar with food allergies), said he had no idea, showed me the oil they used which just said "veg. oil", was not specific (canola, corn, cottonseed???). I contacted corporate headquarters in Charlotte, NC, and they mailed me an ingredient list (about a year ago??) Natural flavors, vague labeling. Did not seemed knowledgeable about food allergies, either. I did notice while in the shop there were doughnuts that contained nuts also being sold. Just a reminder....Don't take anyone's word for it...Check it out yourself. I plan to check into this again. Am encouraged to hear so many good reports but am still cautious, skeptical as this is in what I call "the high risk food group".

They are Peanut free and tree nut free.

I'm with "FROMTHESOUTH" on this as to my concerns about the oil the donuts are fried in. (Though I do understand some experts' stance that heat-processed peanut oils should pose no danger to PA -- I'm not willing to risk that for our PA toddler.) What latitude does each KrispyKreme shop have in the type of oil used? When we are ready to try KrispyKreme donuts with our son, I will definitely have had a full discussion & fact-finding mission with AT LEAST the management of our local KrispyKreme. [And, knowing me, we'll be sitting in the parking lot of the ER to do this taste test! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/redface.gif[/img] ]

If "all" Krispy Kremes are peanut/tree-nut free, why where there nut-containing doughnuts being sold next to the regular glazed in the one I checked out?? I still worry about cross contamination factor. Everyone investigate it for yourself! Don't take anyone else's word for it! If I have learned anything over the last 6 years, I have learned that franchises try to be consistent but it is not always a given. (i.e., We went to a Pizza Hut once and inquired if they used peanut oil. The response was not normally but we have in the past when we ran out of our normal supply.) It is probably unlikely that is Pizza Hut's policy (to substitute oils). Be careful, be safe...

We are big fans of Krispy Kreme donuts and have never seen or heard of one with nuts. The one here in Raleigh uses no nuts. However, one must be careful when buying them from another source. We went to a local supermarket today where they have a large Krispy Kreme display. I was going to let my sons each get one when I noticed that the supermarket had used the extra space in the display for their own muffins. Of course the muffins were loaded with nuts so there went that treat. I was concerned, naturally, about cross contamination. I thought that once a muffin tray was empty they may just refill it with donuts. I did complain to the manager and did get the headquarter's toll free number. He didn't seem to want me to call so I would imagine that they are not supposed to do that. I'll let you know what they say. I think I will drop Krispy Kreme an email too and see what they say and if they know that stores are doing this.

Thanks for the heads up warning "From the South" and "ajas_folks" (especially for the other thread warning).
Yes, well, being from the Toronto area (the world's capital for donut shops...I believe I heard theres more donut shops here than any other city in the world!!), we heard, earlier this month, that Krispy Kreme were coming to Canada and were delighted when we read here that they are nut free.
I emailed them (check out their website) and they emailed me back...

Here is the response I got from Krispy Kreme in regards to our local supermarket putting muffins with nuts in the same display case. I was very pleased with the quick and serious response that I got.
"Thank you for writing us. We have already forwarded your email to our
sales manager for the market in which the Krogers you frequent is in. Her

Never thought I would be so excited about another donut place-but it will be nice to be able to go somewhere that is safe. Plus, I am so tired of seeing Dunkin Donuts and HoneyDew on just about every corner!

Just an FYI.
Krispy Kreme has Halloween booklets of
coupons for free doughnuts. You can get 25 coupons for $5.00. (Each coupon is good for one free doughnut). Pretty good deal.

PattyR-there are a couple of krogers around here and they both have the doughnuts that are prepackaged by krispy kreme and they have a sticker on the box so that you can make sure it hasn't been opened. Does your kroger have them? They weren't near the doughnuts in the case, but were on a table in the middle of the aisle near the front of the store. I won't buy anything in the self serve section since I have seen too many people use their bare (probably not clean) hands to fondle all the doughnuts looking for the one they want.
Also, some of the ones in the cartons also say they are made in a place that uses peanuts/nuts-only the ones with chocolate coatings, I think. When I go to buy some, I check the chocolate ones first because if I see that warning I feel safer buying the ones without the warning, if that makes any sense.

We buy packaged Krispy Kreme doughnuts at Walgreens. I was suprised that the Honey Buns had a tree nut warning. The Original Glazed did not.
The Honey buns said "Distributed by your local Krispy Kreme doughnut store." The glazed said "manufacturd by your local Krispy Kreme store."
I believe that the ones made in a Krispy Kreme store are safe. But, I did not know that Krispy Kreme put their labels on doughnuts made in other facilities.
My husband saw the Krispy Kreme label and thought both were safe.

I have never seen Krispy Kreme "Honey Buns". They are not in the stores here or in the Costco or in the Jewel (Safeway same as Walgreens I think) here.
Maybe some local baker has made a deal to have things distributed by KKreme?
DD (PA/TNA) has eaten glazed, sour cream and filled doughnuts with no problems.

Heather, I saw an article in the Globe about a week ago that said Krispy Kreme was having some trouble getting town approval because of the number of "curb cuts" they requested. This had to do with the drive thru window. Apparently the traffic on route 1 (it is route 1, isn't it?) gets really backed up because of all the drive thru windows (Dunkin Donuts and other fast food places). I was disappointed to read this because we have been anxiously awaiting the opening. The article said that if KK doesn't get the curb cut approval, they couldn't have a drive thru, and that they would abandon the project if that happened. I haven't actually driven out there myself, this is just what I read. Sounds like a Dunkin Donut conspiracy to me!

Ok, there's another article in the Globe this morning about KK. I was mixed up about the locations when I posted earlier. The article says that the Medford location is now open. The problems I read about before involve the Saugus shop. Sorry about the misinformation. Sounds like the Medford KK is open!!

Kelly,
Thank you so much for this information. I should be embarrassed to say we drove to the newly opened Krispy Kreme (45 min) drive and waited in line 45 minutes to get them. But boy were they worth it.That would be great if you could post the ingredient list or let us know did you get it through e-mail or regular mail.
Thanks,
Linda

Hi- I emailed Krispy Kreme regarding the almond amaretto doughnuts and this was their reply:
"Thank you for contacting us again. This months' featured doughnut does have an almond flavoring, however, it is not nut based. Please let us know if you have any addtional questions."
When I orginally contacted them, I was told they were very aware of peanut/treenut allergies. I was sent a complete list of ingredients. Of course, I didn't know they had a doughnut of the month and now I will email back and find out exactly what that is all about. The initial response I received led me to believe they are very concerned about these allergies and would not use these ingredients. I'll let you know their response. Kelly

I've been emailing Krispy Kreme back and forth, and I finally got their answer. I did go to one of their stores this weekend and was presented a laminated card that listed all the ingredients for the almond amaretto donuts. I thought that was a fantastic idea. Yes, it is artificial flavoring. Again, I found them very allergy aware but I still wanted to make sure of all the franchises were the same. They do make the most wonderful donuts. Here is the response:

Thank you for contacting us again. I must first apologize for the delay in
my response. I had to do some research on this issue to insure that I
answered all your questions correctly.
Your first question was, "Do you ever use peanut/treenut products in the
featured doughnuts?" We do not use nut products in any of our featured
doughnuts because we understand the risks involved for those with nut
allergies.
To answer your second question, you can email customer service if you are
ever concerned with a particular doughnut and we can provide you with
ingredient information. I am attaching to the bottom of this email the
most current ingredient legend which includes information on the next
featured doughnut.
Your third question was, "Do all of franchisees participate?" Our
distribution center does not supply any nut products to any of our stores.
No nut based products are on our standard or optional product menu.
However, there are two associate stores, one in Scranton, PA and the other
in Kingsport, TN, that make peanut products. Scranton makes a peanut
stick and Kingsport makes a cake doughnut, topped with chocolate and/or
vanilla icing, and dipped in peanuts. They buying their nuts from a local
vendor. Because of the issues involved with offering such a product, they
will be removing those offering from their menu selection. All of our
other locations are "nut free."
I do hope that I was able to answer your questions. If you think of
anything else, please don't hesitate to contact us again.
Thank you for your patience.
Best regards,
Alison Holder

I'm impressed that they are taking steps to remove peanuts from the 2 franchises that include peanuts - obviously someone near the top of that organization truly cares about us, the customer..

I was just at Krispy Kreme yesterday and noticed the big posters advertising the new amaretto flavored donuts. I was so depressed; especially since it looks identical to many of their other "filled" donuts. I am so thrilled to find out that they truly are as allergy aware as they have claimed to be, and that the almond flavoring is artificial. Hooray! I agree that we should let them know how much we appreciate their efforts. And yes, their donuts are so yummy and delicious!!!

Here, in Northeast Ohio, they sell Krispy Kremes in some of our convenience stores. Every sunday, after church, they sell Krispy Kreme donuts, and always drag my PA son out while his little friend stays. This is amazing! I am so happy that I finally upgraded my home computer and can surf this site more.

I hate to scare people, but I noticed something at our ACME market late one evening and thought I'd share it. Our Acme sells Krispy kreme doughnuts in boxes. I read about them here and once Alex outgrowns his egg allergy I plan to eat them until they come out my ears. Any way, late one night I was walking by the bakery, an employee was taking all the dougnuts, crossionts, cookies...out of the bakery cases and putting them in bakery boxes for sale as packages. I saw her use the same tongs to pickup peanut butter cookies, muffins with walnuts and doughnuts that she put in Krispy Kreme boxes!!! I asked her if the doughnuts in the front of the store came factory sealed or where put in boxes like I saw. She was CLUELESS. And flippant. I called the bakery manager twice and never heard from them. I ended up never following through since Alex can't eat them due to egg allergy but when I read about everyone enjoying them I just wanted to warn to the CHECK it out with your supermarket if that is how you purchase them> Sorry to cause alarm!
