Kinnikinnick Chocolate Dipped Donuts

kinnikinnickchocolatedonuts

Back in April my family tried Kinnikinnick’s gluten-free chocolate dipped donuts for the first time and we were immediately hooked! It was around this time that I took these photos  as well.

They’re in the freezer section at our local Whole Foods and they’re so good that, well, sometimes we don’t even wait for them to thaw. Although a little firmer and chewier, the donuts are just as good frozen. They’re flavourful and you won’t miss the wheat! The donuts are cake-like, though they do have yeast (I don’t know if they’re fried or baked, I know that that’s an important distinction for some). There’s six to a package, so for us that means we either get one each or two if we buy two packages. ;) (Usually when they’re on sale!)

This is what my brother says:

they have a delicious chocolate coating and tastes like wheat inside. It is the first time that I had donuts and I really enjoyed it.

There are also cinnamon glazed/sugar donuts, but we’ve only tried the chocolate dipped ones so far. We’re always recommending them to friends and family because they’re so good!

[Full disclosure: I was sent a calendar, free of charge, from Diane Eblin of The WHOLE Gang for this review and giveaway. All opinions expressed here are my own.]

This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all the participants! The winner will be announced shortly and contacted via email.

It’s December and that means not only are the holidays upon us, the New Year is just around the corner. A new year requires a new calendar and today I’m giving away one of Diane Eblin’s (The WHOLE Gang) 2013 Cookbook Desk Calendars!

Diane’s calendar is perfect for people who like calendars and who like to cook. The calendar comes in a clear CD case, making it easy to prop up on the kitchen counter as you cook, on your desk – or anywhere you like! Included are recipes for every month of the year, all gluten-free and dairy-free (including modifications for making recipes vegetarian, vegan, or paleo), and accompanied by gorgeous photography of each dish. As a special bonus, there is a secret code access for a hidden page with insider tips, tools, resources, and twenty-eight additional recipes on The WHOLE Gang website.

Features of the hidden page:

  • 9 new additional recipes & links to 19 more recipes
  • cooking tips and tricks
  • additional suggestions for the recipes along with instructional photos
  • information on ingredients & tools- resources to find items they might not have
  • instructional cooking videos

Diane says of the 2013 Cookbook Desk Calendar:

After sharing over 500 recipes on my website since 2008 and writing my e-cookbook The Gluten-Free Diner, I wanted to be able to create something just as useful that someone could hold in their hands. I also wanted something that reflected what I hear when I work with clients as a health coach. “Give me something so I can have an easy, healthy, gluten-free life.” Many families are not just cooking for gluten-free but for many dietary needs at once. It’s certainly that way in my house!

So, this cookbook desk calendar was designed with that criteria in mind. Easy, healthy, gluten-free living with an easy way to also cook dairy-free, vegetarian, vegan and Paleo without having to cook 5 different meals at once.

To win one of these calendars, simply leave a comment on this post telling me why you would like to win this calendar. A winner will be picked randomly using Random.org and will be contacted by me via email. Please include a valid, working email address in the email field (not the body of the comment) when you leave your comment. The giveaway is open to residents of the United States and Canada. The giveaway starts today, Saturday, December 1, 2012 and ends on Wednesday, December 5, 2012 at 11:59 PM PST.

Good luck!
