No Nut Donut
Finding safe baked goods when you are allergic to tree nuts and peanuts is like winning the lottery — virtually impossible. I’ve tried brands that can be purchased at your local grocery store, but none of them have quite tasted the way that I’d hope. I’ve taken to baking at home, but quite honestly I don’t always have the time. Being a Chicagoan, I grew up on Dunkin’ Donuts (chocolate Munchkins, yum), and I must admit, I am quite saddened by the fact that I can no longer eat there due to cross-contamination risks. So, I hadn’t eaten a good donut — at least by my standards — in almost a year. Sad, right? Well that changed this past week. On a trip to New York City, The Donut Pub reopened the door to tasty donuts. Don’t let the name fool you. It’s not a hipster business or a tourist attraction with overpriced donuts. It’s where the locals go for nostalgic varieties like old-fashioned or jelly-filled … or to sample 21st century varieties like red velvet and croissant donuts.
This 24/7 donut shop is a “nut aware” establishment. According to the FAQs on their website, this means that their bakery does not utilize nuts, and they have been assured by their suppliers that all of the ingredients that they receive are nut-free.
