The plant is peanut and nut free. (And sesame seed free.) And the donuts are yummy. :lol:

Thanks so much for posting AM -- I've seen these at the grocery store many times and have intended on calling but never get around to it. :D

Wow - I'd pretty much given up on donuts – and a future in police work :lol:

AM, if you have package on hand, can you tell me if they contain soy? If not, I'm so all over these.

Where can we buy these donuts? Are they at grocery stores? or just at the plant?

My husband has found them at several different grocery stores.

Gwen, if you go on their web-site, click on products, then chose what donut you want and click on Nutritional Info. It lists the ingredients. I only looked at two, and both had some kind of soy added as an ingredient.

I'm pretty sure I've seen them at Loblaws and/or No Frills. Next time I'm out I'll take a look for them to be sure.

Thanks for the posting and heads up. Today I was in "No Frills" and picked up 2 packages of Annette's glazed donuts. My DS1 was thrilled!! They taste great too!

is this an Ontario company? I can't seem to find information as to what stores they are in. Would love to get them here in Alberta.

They are located in Toronto Ontario.

I know I read a post somewhere about a doughnut company that sells frozen ones. I've never tried them, but if I can find the post I'll add it.

Thanks for this tip AnnaMarie. These donuts are now carried at our Superstore in NS, I bought them last weekend and my son ate his first donut!! He of course loved it.

I would probably have walked right by those donuts, thinking they would have May Contain labels all over them!

Yay for peanut/nut free donuts!

I've had very few donuts in my life, but I heard somewhere that Crispy Cream Donuts are peanut/nut free. ^_^ I might be wrong, if so... My apologies...!

Wal-Mart. I've found more varieties at Wal-Mart than at the food stores. My DS1 was thrilled to eat his first Boston Cream donut. :) I've frozen a couple of them but haven't thawed them yet. Wondering how they'd freeze b/c I don't want to have to eat 6 donuts each time we have a hankerin' for a donut lol.

I have called Krispy Kream on a number of occasions and they were very knowledgeable about allergens. At the time they were peanut free. Always best to recheck though.

Here is the telephone number: To get further information about our products call us at 1-800-4KRISPY. They were a great fund raiser for our youth group.
