Creative Donuts - Fun night owl outing
Posted on 05 / 19 / 2015
You walk in and the store is brightly lit, clean, organized, and spacious. Like all good doughnut places, they're 24 hours and we arrived at 3 AM, so the wafting aroma of freshly made doughnuts always makes for almost a sensual experience.
I have to say I was a little disappointed that it wasn't all vegan as I thought it was, but nine options is a good start even if they're on the bottom. Be forewarned that they are all cake donuts and not glazed or something more exotic, but wouldn't you know the bacon topped maple eclairs are on the top shelf. Hierarchy.
I have never had vegan doughnuts before and I have to say they are a little denser than regular cake donuts, but many vegan versions of deserts are. Reasonably priced at $7.89 a baker's dozen, they are definitely worth a try. The vegan doughnuts have a butteriness that's not like regular doughnuts, but it suits it as well as the smooth frosting, yummy chopped peanuts, or crunchy coconut. "It's an authentic comfort donut" as my friend says.
I have to admit I did try a non-vegan doughnut that I highly recommend. The strawberry doughnut! So good! I want another one right now just thinking about it! They have other cool flavors like red velvet, carrot cake, pecan queen, and cronuttery, but unfortunately, those flavors are non-vegan options.
