Dunkin Donuts Goes Gluten Free

According to this Bloomberg article, Dunkin' Donuts will be offering two gluten free items before the end of 2013: cinnamon-sugar donuts and blueberry muffins.

Stan, Frankenthaler, the company's executive chief, said "[w]e recognize the importance of providing our guests with many options, including alternative choices for people with food and dietary restrictions."

According to information from this Los Angeles Times article, the donut will contain 320 calories while the muffin will have 400 calories.

Let's hope the chain's experiment with gluten free doesn't go the way of Starbucks' experiment with gluten free back in 2009.
