Dum Dum Doughnuts Donuts Halal

Three alternatives to Krispy Kreme doughnuts

Many of you may have been left heart broken by news of doughnut company Krispy Kreme no longer being certified by the Halal Food Authority (HFA).

The Halal certification body made the announcement on their Facebook page this week that “HFA no longer certify Krispy Kreme as halal” (update 31-10-2019: Krispy Kreme have clarified: “Our doughnuts are still suitable for a Halal diet; we just no longer have the accreditation.”).

While the basic recipe of any standard doughnut is essentially Halal, generally concerns are often raised in relation to the additonal use of non-Halal ingredients, which can include alcohol.

As for those more concerned with finding an alternative for their cravings, then here’s three which, though not certified by any particular body, are known for rolling out exceptionally good Halal doughnuts, starting with the exceptionally good Dum Dum Donutterie.


Dum Dum Doughnuts aren’t just “the world’s first artisan baked donut brand”, but they’ve also confirmed with us that theirs are Halal- and vegetarian-friendly.

Made with only natural ingredients, these unique handmade donuts are a healthier modern alternative to traditional donuts, which are all deep fried.

With increasing branches across England popularly serving irresistible flavours that include Crême Brûlée, Boston Creme, and The Yum Yum, these guys are quickly attracting a growing legion of loyal fans across the country.

But if there’s one flavour that defines Dum Dums, it’s their daily top-selling signature ‘Cro’ (an innovative cross between a donut and a croissant), The Zebra, which contains layers of croissant dough and chocolate croissant dough filled with chocolate buttercream and topped with chocolate ganache and shavings of white and dark chocolate.

These artisan baked donuts are the product of hard work put in by chef Paul Hurley who, since 1997, had the vision of creating ‘The Best Donut In The World?’.

Through his journey, Paul created a product which is freshly baked every single day by Artisan Chefs, that’s significantly lower in fat (half in some instances) than its competitors thanks to a traditional patisserie-based baking process – so unique that it is patented in Europe and the US.

With successful London-based outlets, including Euston Station, Westfield London, BoxPark Shoreditch and Croydon, Dum Dum Donutterie have expanded across the South East including Brighton, Kent, Essex and further north in Birmingham, with all their outlets staying open every day until all doughnuts have sold out.

While Dum Dums has also participated in Halal food festivals, it’s opened internationally too with outlets in Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

Chef Paul continues to push the boundaries of what can be created by launching “The Crone” (A baked croissant dough Ice Cream Cone) and the World’s most expensive Cro – The Luxury Zebra at £1,500.

If you’re looking for a replacement box, then Dum Dums offer an excellent assortment that range from Dough and Cro boxes to a mixture of both, with the option of delivery or store collection.
