Kinnikinnick Doughnuts – Review & Giveaway

If you’re not familiar with Kinnikinnick Foods, their mission statement is:
To provide Celiacs, people with Autism and other people with special dietary requirements with an uncontaminated, risk free source of food products.  To provide our customers with food that actually looks and tastes Great.
Their products are produced in dedicated gluten, wheat, and nut free facilities that use soy, eggs and sesame seeds. I found their video on the importance of dedicated gluten-free facilities and equipment interesting.  In it they simply show us a high speed waffle line that they purchased used and had to clean.  It took them four weeks to remove all traces of gluten.  You can see in the video how much gluten can be found on various parts of the equipment.  They took the equipment apart to clean it—something that is not done when a company uses shared equipment.  Many of the areas cannot easily be cleaned, yet are close to if not actually in contact with the food.  You can also find the video on the Kinnikinnick Foods website.

For the Valentine’s season,Kinnikinnick is offering the above pictured cinnamon apple doughnuts which are gluten, dairy, soy, and nut free.  They are available until February 28th and only through their website or by calling toll free 1-877-503-4466.

Kinnikinnick sent me a sampling of their doughnut varieties.  These apple cinnamon doughnuts may be more dense than their gluten-containing counterparts, but they have that doughnut flavor along with the cinnamon and a hint of apple.  Gluten-free son and I both liked them, and my sweet-toothed son did everything he could to talk me into giving him one, which I did.  He thought they were pretty good, and he’s a gluten eater.  The doughnuts are small, about 3 inches in diameter and come 6 to a package.

Don’t expect a gluten-free doughnut to be exactly like a big soft gluten-filled doughnut.  But if doughnuts are something you really miss, these are good.  You can look for Kinnikinnick in the frozen section of health food stores and the frozen health food section of some regular grocery stores.  I have seen them at Giant.  There is a store locator on their web site or you can order directly from them. 

Kinnikinnick also offers other gluten-free (and dairy free) products such as breads, cookies, mixes, cooking/baking products and more.

I miss maple bars the most. But really, any donut is a delicous donut. themissy@gmail.com
I follow your RSS feed. Also: old-fashioned, with the crusty white icing.
Aaaand I just added you on Twitter. How about a really, really hot & fresh Krispy Kreme, where the donut is squishy but the icing is already crunchy-hard.

(I haven't had a donut in over 5 years. I'm kind of torturing myself here.)
I miss either long johns with custard or apple fritters the most. I was such a sucker for donuts during my gluten days
I follow you on twitter!
I miss double chocolate donuts from Tim Horton's SO much.

I've been trying to get up the nerve to attempt making my own donuts. But I feel if I succeed..that's a dangerous skill to have.
I would love to try these! There were these bavarian filled triangle donuts from a local doghnut shop~yum
Or my other fsavorite, boston creme!

I've tried these donuts and liked them, too. I miss the raised donut bars with maple frosting.
I've tried the vanilla iced donuts before, but my local health food store doesn't carry the other varieties (the downside of living in a smallish place). Thanks for the giveaway.
Oh, forgot to say I missed the boston creme donuts. I don't do facebook but I do follow you on rss feeds.
I just plain miss donuts! I loved the chocolate sprinkle kind the best, but was usually up for anything!

I've tried kinnikinnick donuts before - the chocolate kind - and really enjoyed them. I drizzled them with some additional chocolate syrup and sprinkles.

Personally, I prefer homemade, but who has time to make donuts? These are a great treat to keep in the freezer!

I miss the doughnuts with jelly in the middle and icing and sprinkles on the top
Doughnuts used to be a major temptation to me, when I was young and didn't think I should avoid all that sugar...and gluten. There's not anything else that smells or tastes quite the same. Now that I'm older and wiser, what a treat it would be to have some gluten-free doughnuts!
Oh how I miss vanilla doughnuts with vanilla icing and rainbow sprinkles. I can make gluten free ones, but they are just not quite as good.

I miss the apple donuts we used to get when we went apple picking. Fortunately, Kinnikinnick comes through, as usual! :)

No gluten free donuts available anywhere close to where I live - I really miss all flavors - even the plain ....Will gladly take some off your hands please :)
I miss the flavored cake donuts - like pumpkin, or blueberry, or cherry.
I buy Kinnikinnick donuts for my son for special occasions. We can only have the cinnamon sugar ones though, because those are the only ones without corn. (he also has a corn allergy.) If it's been a while since you've had a donut, and if you warm these a little, they really hit the donut spot!
I follow you on Facebook!
I miss all doughnuts... but I love cake donuts... and I am pregnant now, so I am craving them.... will have to go to whole foods and get some Kinnikinnick Foods donuts.
