To most people, gluten is as welcome as a warm slice of bread. To a growing minority, however, gluten is the root cause of a host of infuriating ailments, including Celiac Disease. To sufferers of these ailments, eating the stuff they used to love can be nigh impossible. Pizza? Good luck. Donuts? Forget about it.
Not so fast. Dunkin’ Donuts, best known for being the thing that America runs on, has begun selling a gluten-free line of treats at select locations. These new donuts are individually wrapped so as not to be confused with their gluten-filled contemporaries.
The company is being tight lipped as to when this new line of morning treats will get a national rollout. For now, only Massachusetts and Florida residents can indulge without fear of the gluten in their bodies rising up and taking over. Dunkin’ Donuts joins a growing list of fast food chains that have made concessions to please their gluten-sensitive customers. Others include Wendy’s, Arby’s, Domino’s and Chick-Fil-A.
