Krispy Kreme Doughnuts


Eat Dairy Free - Your Essential Cookbook for Everyday Meals, Snacks, and SweetsUpdated 2018! Unfortunately, as of our last review, Krispy Kreme only has black coffee, espresso and a few prepackaged juices and sodas to offer dairy-free consumers. They use milk in all of their fancy coffee drinks and their doughnuts all contain dairy (dried milk powder). I only include them in our Fast Food listings because we get so many reader inquiries about this chain.

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts -the bare minimum for dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free and soy-free diners

More Details from Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

Ingredient Information: 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). We use vegetable shortening (palm, soybean, and/or cottonseed and canola oil) for zero gram of trans fat per one serving of doughnut. 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.

Allergen Disclaimer: Our facilities produce products with peanuts, tree nuts, soy, milk, eggs, and wheat. We cannot guarantee that any other products are safe to consume for people with any of these allergies.

    Are you guys considering making any dairy free donuts? With the demand for these products raising I was just wondering?

    • Um, I wasn’t aware that I was supposed to market for Krispy Kreme. I’m providing honest, real information here. If you want straight promotion, I suggest you head to their website for their campaigns. We are not affiliated with any restaurants.

  2. They used to have dairy free doughnuts back in the 90’s. I was able to have the glazed curlers, but they took them off sometime ago.

    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.

  5. 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.
