Krispy Kreme Vegan Doughnuts
World Vegan Day just got a whole lot sweeter at Krispy Kreme
You asked for it and we listened! To celebrate World Vegan Day, November 1st, we're launching our highly anticipated and limited time only ‘vegan-friendly’ doughnuts!
We've brought back one of our classic premium flavours - the Apple Custard Crumble Doughnut: a fluffy shell-shaped Doughnut, filled with creamy apple custard, dipped in a tantalising spiced icing, and dunked in a vanilla biscuit crumb.
And for the choc-lovers - the decadent Fudge Brownie Bliss Doughnut: a shell-shaped Doughnut, filled generously with rich brownie batter, expertly dipped in luscious choc icing, and sprinkled with choc biscuit crumbs.
Both flavours are made fresh daily and have been expertly crafted to offer the same great taste and freshness Krispy Kreme is famous for, with the added benefit of being vegan-friendly.

How will you control the risk of cross contamination with animal ingredients?
Our vegan-friendly doughnuts are produced in the same factory which also creates our other doughnuts and uses shared equipment. However, we have taken all practical steps to minimise the risk of cross contamination as far as is reasonably possible. Before vegan-friendly production, there is a full clean down of all key areas and equipment on site and production is always scheduled to produce vegan-friendly doughnuts first, before the rest of the range.

Our vegan-friendly doughnuts do not include any egg or milk ingredients in the recipe and are prepared in a way that reduces the risk of cross contamination. However, due to the nature of our doughnut production we cannot guarantee that any of our doughnuts are allergen free.
