Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

Posted on by Alisa Fleming in Fast Food Restaurants with 4 Comments

Unfortunately, as of our last review, Krispy Kreme only has black coffee and espresso and perhaps the Fruity Chillers (check on ingredients at location – Kremey Chillers are out, they are loaded with dairy) to offer dairy-free consumers.

From their website:

“The only animal by-products used in our doughnuts are eggs (whites and yolks) and dairy products (including milk, butter, yogurt, whey, nonfat milk and nonfat whey). Our doughnuts are cooked in zero grams trans fat shortening (palm, soybean, and/or cottonseed and canola oil). All monoglycerides and diglycerides are vegetable based. Enzymes are also present. The lecithin we use is soy based. We also use wheat in our doughnuts, including bran, germ, gluten, starch and flour. Our products may contain allergens. To get further information about our products call us at 1-800-4KRISPY.”

Yes, perhaps vegetarians can enjoy a Krispy Kreme, but vegans and dairy-free consumers stay far, far away. These are dairy-rich donuts!

    Krispy Kreme Doughnut Corporation gave me a coupon for a free doughnut, but what use is it if they don’t have vegan doughnuts? They should have just given me a dollar. Now I know why I see so many obese people around town. Gross.

    Will krispy creme ever make a vegan-friendly doughnut and make it available in the UK? It’s been SO long since i’ve been able to eat anything like this i would REALLY love to try them but unfortunately they’re not suitable.
