Kinnikinnick Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

I'm so disappointed. For the longest time I craved donuts as the rest of the family devoured Dunkin Donuts. The kids would beg for donuts with pink frosting and their dad would walk them to the store only 3 blocks away for fresh donuts. With my wheat allergy I would be left there watching them gobble them. Then I discovered Kinnikinnik® chocolate glazed gluten-free donuts at Healthway Natural Foods. These donuts were so wonderful, I no longer missed their wheat cousins. I allowed my husband to try a sliver. He compared it to the wheat donuts he had just had and announced they tasted good, like a donut and just a little heavier then the ‘real thing’. For a gluten-free pastry this is very high praise. The disappointment came when their vendor discovered there was an artificial ingredient and discontinued the product. For some strange reason they don’t believe in the best of nature and man blended to make a great product. It has to be 100% natural. I have disturbing news for them. Arsenic, mercury, and other natural things are not good for you. Sigh!

So after nearly a year of being donut free I decided to give in and try one of the other Kinnikinnick donuts. The vanilla glazed just didn’t sound appealing so I tried the cinnamon sugar donuts. I like cinnamon and I liked their chocolate glaze so I should like these right – Wrong! They were not a donut. I’m not sure what they were but they are not the delicious donuts I know they are capable of making. Luckily the store has a good return policy for products you don’t like.
