All of the KK packaged ones that were previously "distributed by" and had a tree nut warning on them, are now made here locally and no longer carry any allergen warnings! We had some delicious KK cinnamon cake doughnuts this weekend.

For Becca and anyone dealing with egg allergy,
When I was a kid we used to make donuts with Pillsbury refrigerated biscuits. Just make a whole in the center and fry in oil. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and cinammon. Yummm!

Thanks Scooby! They actually did that at school. I should try it. But it would be nice for a lazy treat to just get some at the store or bakery once in a great while! becca

I will never forget the first time we went to a Krispy Kreme store and my son was able to choose anything he wanted from the bakery case [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
He told the employees that it was his first donut EVER and they made a production out of it with singing, balloons, and even took his picture for us. That picture of him with a donut baker's hat and powered sugar from head to toe is one of our family favorites.
We reserve Krispy Kreme for very special occasions, perhaps twice a year, and it always well received.

We have had the boxed KK from the grocery store. There was no warning at all on the box.I did call KK and got the same info as everyone else.
So far, we've ate them a few times and have had no problems.
We have to do the box ones since we don't have a local KK bakery.

We bought a box last weekend. There was no warning on the box. My daughter LOVES them as they are the only breakfast "treat" she can eat. She ate them without any problems.

Thanks for posting. I'll be looking to see what they tell you. We're going on vacation soon to visit my parents and my mom loves to buy KK for the kids (since I won't allow them to eat any of her food-it's almost all imported).

Oh..I hope it's artificially flavored! They also have test markets now that have ice cream with peanut toppings- but at least those are in little bags (like McD's).

I noticed some back- pedaling on their no nut ingredients last week when I received these responses after an inquiry-
"Thank you for your email regarding the risk of nut products in our doughnuts. We appreciate the opportunity to assist you.
While we strive to minimize the risk of cross contamination, we cannot guarantee that our products are free of nuts or nut derivatives. All of the ingredients for the products in our stores are sent from centralized production plants. The final decision to consume Krispy Kreme doughnuts will always rest with the consumer. We certainly understand your concerns and value your feedback."
and earlier:We often receive questions from consumers like you about the likelihood of peanuts in our products. While we do not currently have peanuts 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 hope this is not a trend

I just emailed them. We don't have one near us, but it is a treat my son counts on when we visit Grandma.
Dang it, I'm doing a lot of emailing this week. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/mad.gif[/img]
