Krispy Kreme doughnuts--is it true they use lard?

  • x


I love Krispy Kreme doughnuts but was recently told that they use lard. Is that true?

  1. No. According to the Krispy Kreme web site, "All of our doughnuts are ingredient Kosher. Our mix plants in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and Effingham Illinois, where the mix is made have been certified Kosher. In addition, some of our stores, but not all, have been certified Kosher. To get a complete listing of our stores that have been Kosher certified please call us at 1800 4KRISPY."


    1. Krispy Kreme donuts sold at local Albertson's markets in Dallas are certified kosher dairy by the Vaad HaKashrus of Dallas (d/b/a Dallas Kosher).
