Truly fabulous doughnuts! They use actual mashed potatoes not potato flour. They are light and delish. Salted chocolate and maple bacon were my faves.

We aren't regular donut eaters, but wanted to see what all the fuss was about. This is a very popular place. They have lots of flavors to choose from, and the donuts were interesting.

Let me google that for you. No. And I am glad they don't because although they were great the second day, they were fantastic the first day. You'd want the best product, but who knows, if you call them, maybe you can... More
