Dunkin Takes Its Time With Gluten-free Donuts

Update: Dunkin' Donuts has released the following statement to Gluten-Free Living:
"In 2013, we tested a gluten-free Cinnamon Sugar Donut and Blueberry Muffin in select markets. We are currently assessing the results of this test, as well as feedback from our guests and franchisees, and we do not have plans to launch these products nationally at this time. We are continuing to develop additional gluten-free products for future tests, and we remain committed to exploring ways to offer our guests gluten-free choices."

Celiac.com 01/30/2014 - Why is Dunkin' Donuts taking so long to debut gluten-free versions of its famous treats? First came the whispers of test marketing and then the official announcement, but then…?

For its part, the company seems intent on getting gluten-free right. They have spent a great deal of time, and I assume money, creating a reliable, safe gluten-free production and distribution chain.

From source materials to dedicated gluten-free production facility to special production methods, to comprehensive training and service, Dunkin' looks to be taking its gluten-free donut rollout with the utmost seriousness.

For a more detailed account of Dunkin's much anticipated gluten-free donut rollout, Venessa Wong has an excellent article in Bloomberg Businessweek.

Thank you for this. Though the article was completed before Dunkin's announcement, the announcement did come before we got the article live. Apologies for that. We'll correct the story to reflect the latest development from Dunkin' Donuts.

For those unfamiliar, Dunkin' released the following statement to Gluten-Free Living, confirming the news:

"In 2013, we tested a gluten-free Cinnamon Sugar Donut and Blueberry Muffin in select markets. We are currently assessing the results of this test, as well as feedback from our guests and franchisees, and we do not have plans to launch these products nationally at this time.

Anyone in the northeast suburbs of Philly who wants a GF donut should try the Happy Mixer an new GF Bakery in Chalfont, PA on County Line Rd. My son is a very picky GF eater and he LOVES their donuts, he says their cookies & cupcakes are very good too, but the donuts are especially fantastic.

A little more research would have quickly disclosed in fact that DD did, in fact, come out with both a donut and a "blueberry" muffin which were both so bad as to be inedible. Test areas near Miami, Brookline MA, and Connecticut were so excited to see the roll out and then came the test. We tasted. We spit them out, We did not buy any more. The muffin was dry, crumbly and awful. The donut small, too sweet and again, dry and cumbly. The good part was the individual wrapping allowing these to be kept frozen and ready for eating-- I think heating them for a few seconds might have been helpful. But I have to say these were one of the worst tasting gf items I have ever tried. The price point was way too high as well. I would rather do without, so I hope they are coming up with a much better product!

When items have multiple ingredients it can be hard to tell to which we are reacting. That gluten reactions can be delayed can also make it difficult and at times confusing. I would have random reactions at first and keeping a food and symptom diary helped a great deal. For myself the common ite...

They do a breath test, in some cases they can identify it in extreme cases visually if it has spread to the mouth like thrush or viewable on a scope.

Keep a food diary and record everything you eat, condiments, how it is fixed etc. You might have a CC cuplrit and find it this way. Also with this disease it is common to develop random intolerance issues and allergies to foods. If you get glutened depending on your symptoms you can do some thing...

So sorry you are going through this set back. You say you are getting glutened from random uncontrollable cross contamination. What are the things that you think you are getting CC from?

Hi guys, I had a really bad reaction to a certain brand of kefir yesterday. The reaction was neurological and I think it must have been an accidental glutening or an allergic reaction to an additive. The problem is I don?t know which ingredient had caused it. I was wondering if anyone has experie...
