You Can't Go Back
Across the nation, donut lovers can rejoice over these creative treats. We’ve collected the best (and craziest) designer donuts that put typical breakfast foods to shame and will make you kiss your boring glazed donut days goodbye.
The Maple Bacon Donut at Broma Bakery
The Chocolate Lover’s Donut at Glazed and Infused
This is the donut that you devour at 10 am despite knowing it’s definitely a dessert food, rather than breakfast. It’s just too good to turn down. From brownie batter to German chocolate cake, the glories of chocolate are easily transferred into “breakfast,” aka morning dessert.
The S’mores Donut at Macaron Parlour
The Cannoli Donut at Stew Leonard’s
This donut is proudly brought to you by the bakers of Stew Leonard’s. (For those of you who don’t know, Stew Leonard’s is the world’s largest dairy store –think Wawa meets Trader Joe’s and add a singing cow). This creamy cannoli donut is worth all of the potential cavities. Chocolate chips + cannoli custard = the greatest upgrade to breakfast since the waffle iron.
The Better-than-Boston-Cream Donut at United By Blue
Wasn’t it Picasso who famously said, “Everything you can imagine is real”? Obviously the tortured artist must have been referring to these Better-than-Boston-Cream donuts. This sweet treat proves that you can truly replace cream with (almost) anything and it will still be delicious. Fillings range from Dulce de Leche, to Nutella, and even to burger.
The Mojito Donut at Crooked Confections
…Or actually just a donut with an alcoholic twist that lets you drink at 8 am without feeling like you’ve given up on life. Who can say no to a boozy breakfast?
The Purple Goat Donut at Glazed Gourmet
Woah is right. Stuffed with berry goat cheese filling and topped with a lavender glaze, this savory-sweet combo is beautiful in all the right ways.For more of America's most absurd donuts go to SpoonUniversity.com
