It is a sad fact of life that Krispy Kreme’s Gluten-Free Menu is depressingly short, and contains not a single item that resembles a donut in any way. The official statement from Krispy Kreme is that they have no plans to produce a gluten-free menu due to it being impossible for them to capture the distinctive character of their donuts using a gluten-free recipe. What this means for those who suffer from celiac disease and other gluten sensitivities is that the gluten-free menu remains mostly comprised of their beverages. Thankfully, Krispy Kreme knows a thing or two about making a good coffee.
