Glutino has joined Kinnikinnick in making gluten-free donuts recently. I hadn’t seen them in any local store until the other day when I was in Whole Foods. I had a hard time deciding between the original glazed & the chocolate glazed, but ended up leaving with the chocolate glazed variety.

The donuts were just over $5 for 6 donuts, which is comparable to the Kinnikinnick donuts. You can imagine Jon’s surprise when I came home with donuts for him. His teeth were really sore from getting his braces tightened, so a warm, soft donut was just the thing to make him feel better.
Jon ooohed & aaahed his way through the donut & promptly asked for another one. That, I had to deny. He said the donuts were awesome, but not as good as the Kinnikinnick donuts. The Glutino variety don’t seem to be as dense as the Kinnikinnick donuts, so perhaps he just prefers them more dense? The taste & texture were good and not crumbly at all. They still have a cake-like appearance, but seem to be more airy, if that makes sense. Of course now we must buy the original variety the next time we make a trip to Whole Foods.
Glutino has been around since 1983 and has been providing gluten-free foods to those with celiac disease, gluten intolerance, wheat allergies and those who follow a gluten-free or wheat-free diet ever since. They currently offer more than 80 gluten-free products!
