Review: Katz Gluten Free Doughnuts

Just a few weeks back I wrote an article about Katz Gluten Free debuting a few new products, specifically, doughnuts.  I am pleased to tell you that I have been able to sample all three varieties and can’t wait to share my thoughts with you!  When I got up this morning I was less than pleased to find out that our warmer-than-normal January temperatures were on their way out and snow was on its way in.  That set the mood for the day right off the bat – gloomy.  I tried to focus on all of the nice weather that we have had up until now, but that didn’t work.

Just after lunch my doorbell rang and I found a nice package from Katz Gluten Free waiting for me and my day instantly brightened!  How could I continue this gloomy mood with gluten-free doughnuts to be sampled?


No need to wait for breakfast, right?  They practically jumped out of the package onto the plate.


I have to admit that I was shocked at the size of the doughnut holes!  They are just about the size of my fist!  Okay, well maybe not quite that big, more like a racquetball size.  As much as I wanted to eat them as is, I knew I had to cut them open to inspect the insides.  I also knew that it was in my best interests to share these with Jon.


First and foremost, all three of these doughnuts tasted amazing!  I honestly wouldn’t have known they were gluten-free if I hadn’t seen the package.  I was a little disappointed that there wasn’t more jelly in the jelly version.  It did appear that some of it soaked into the doughnut rather than remain in the middle where it should be.  The custard didn’t seem to have the same issue, probably due to the consistency of the custard.  The powdered sugar doughnut reminded me of the packaged doughnuts my mom used to buy me as a child, only better!  Jon instantly fell in love with all of them, too, so I see some fighting going on around here soon.

Katz Gluten Free Doughnuts can be purchased on their website and are on sale currently!  There is also a gluten-free sample pack available for free (only pay the cost of shipping – $4.99).  The sample pack includes:  “1 Slice each of Whole Grain Bread, Sliced Challah Bread, White Bread and Wholesome Bread. Also included are 1 Dinner Roll, a sample Cookie and Rugelech, and 1 Sample Slice of Marble Cake“.  Free shipping is available on orders over $30 to certain locations.
