Kinnikinnick Gluten-Free Donuts
I recently received samples of Kinnikinnick gluten-free donuts. I had tried the cinnamon sugar donuts a few years ago, but donuts are one of those sweets that I usually do not buy. They are a nice to have, not a must-have in my dessert world. I find that growing up gluten-free with extremely limited gluten-free options in the mid-1980s and early 1990s, that I tend to keep away from most desserts just out of habit. (This is probably a better habit to have or else I would be fat as a house!) These donuts are definitely worth a try, though. I opened the chocolate-covered donuts as soon as I got them and shared with my gluten-eating coworker. Both of us enjoyed the little treat. He gave them two stars out of three and I agree. They are a bit dense, but not too heavy. They also are not crumbly as many gluten-free cakes and cookies tend to be. The chocolate dipped donut had just enough icing covering the donut. Too much more and I think it would have been too sweet for me to enjoy. The other great thing about these donuts is that they are wheat-free, dairy-free, soy-free, nut-free, and potato-free. Ingredients are below.

From Kinnikinnick:

Because going gluten-free shouldn’t mean a diet free of donuts, Kinnikinnick Foods, leader in the development of baked goods ideal for those following a special diet, today announces that their popular gluten-free Chocolate Dipped and Vanilla Glazed donuts are now available at Whole Foods Markets nationwide.

Rich in yummyness, yet free of gluten, wheat, nut, dairy, soy and trans fat, Kinnikinnick’s donuts are made from quality ingredients such as white rice four, sweet rice flour and palm fruit oil; contain half the fat of conventional donuts and no preservatives, and are produced in a completely gluten-free and nut-free facility.

The Vanilla Glazed and Chocolate Dipped flavors have a SRP of $6.59 per 11.3 oz package. Kinnikinnick donuts are also available via www.kinnikinnick.com and at select health food and mainstream markets across the country and in Canada.

Additional flavors include Cinnamon Sugar and Maple Glazed. For best texture and taste, keep frozen and warm before eating.

Kinnikinnick Products are produced in dedicated Gluten/Wheat/Nut free facilities that use Soy, Eggs and Sesame Seeds. Their facilities have been nut free since June 15, 2009. They are well into the process of reprinting packaging for our entire line however some of their packaging still lists the potential for nut traces. All products purchased directly from Kinnikinnick from June 15, 2009 onwards will have been produced in a nut free facility. Some stores may still have old stock. If the packaging does not indicate produced in a nut free facility, the only indication that product was produced after June 15 is the best before date.
