After months of testing, Dunkin' Donuts is finally ready to unleash its range of gluten-free goodies to customers across the country.
According to Bloomberg, Dunkin' Donuts will be selling gluten-free cinnamon-sugar doughnuts and blueberry muffins in stores nationwide this year, becoming the first in the fast food industry to offer gluten-free pastries.
“We recognize the importance of providing our guests with many options, including alternative choices for people with food and dietary restrictions,” Stan Frankenthaler, the company's executive chef, told the news outlet.
It's no surprise that Dunkin' Donuts has decided to launch its gluten-free treats nationwide. Not only have many other fast food chains jumped on the wheat-free bandwagon, but when the company first began testing their gluten-free snacks in a few locations in Florida and Massachusetts last year, the baked goods were enthusiastically received.
In December, for instance, a gluten-free support group in Florida called the sweet treats “dangerously delicious,” according to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness.
Indeed, though the tasty eats will be better alternatives for those who are gluten intolerant, be warned that they will not necessarily be better for you.
"There will be nothing 'healthier' about these donuts," The Stir's Adriana Velez wrote in January about the wheat-free goodies. "They're still donuts, after all."
