Review: Glutino Donuts

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!

Glutino products can be purchase in stores across the US or online from various sources. Some of those sources include Gluten Solutions, Glutenfree.com, and Amazon.com. Some of the past reviews that have been shared here at Celiac-Disease.com are Glutino Bars, Glutino Chocolate & Yogurt Covered Pretzels, and Glutino Cookies & Candy Bars.

Have you had a chance to sample the new Glutino Donuts yet? How did they rate in your book?

    Less dense than KK’s? Mmmm….I might have to spring for some of the glazed treats because “airy” is exactly the way a doughnut should be in my book. Thanks for the review 😉

    THRILLED to hear about these donuts! This might be the thing I’ve missed the most…have been afraid to try them, but must do so now! Thanks for the info!

    Wondering are they casin free as well? I know the Kinninick ones are and that is why I don’t really like the chocolate ones( though still enjoy the other varieties) a whole lot- so if these aren’t I am wondering if I will like them a little better. I think I will definately have to give the glazed ones a try though esp if they are less dense!

  4. that is JUST evil!! Although I have to admit I’m a big fan of the KK donuts! I’ve only had them a few times, but I really liked them!! But it’s been like 5 years since i’ve had a regular donut… lol
