Dunkin' Donuts, Gluten-Free? Chain Tests Celiac Disease-Friendly Version Of Treats

Dunkin' Donuts, the company beloved for their use of sugary, less-than-healthy ingredients, has begun testing a gluten-free line of products in a few locations in southern Florida and the Boston area.

According to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, the gluten-free products will be individually wrapped and are "dangerously delicious."

When asked about the additions to their menu, a spokesperson for Dunkin' Donuts claimed that the testing has been well-received. We haven't gotten any word yet about if or when Dunkin' Donuts could bring the gluten-free line to more stores across the country.

The coffee and breakfast giant joins a slew of other fast food chains adding gluten free items to their menys, including Wendy's, Arby's, Domino's and Chick-Fil-A. More broadly, sales of gluten-free products in the U.S. have been skyrocketing over the past few years; They rose 18 % on a dollar basis from 2011 to 2012 alone.
