5 Deliciously Weird Donuts
We all know it — all donuts aren’t created equal. As a donut pro, you’ve probably seen your fair share of regular, plain and downright boring donuts.
But why settle for the ordinary? Donut bakeries across the globe have been challenging the status quo of this treat.
If you thought salty donuts were strange, you’ll get a kick out of these deliciously weird donuts.
1. Captain Crunch Donut
What’s one of the best things about being a kid? It’s curling up to a bowl of cereal to enjoy cartoons on a Saturday morning.
Voodoo Doughnut wants to give you a donut filled with nostalgia. Their Oh Captain, My Captain donut is topped with — you guessed it — Captain Crunch cereal.
Voodoo is known for their peculiar donut recipes, but this one will take you way back.
Milk not included.
2. Cocktail Donuts
It’s always a good idea to turn breakfast into happy hour. The NoMad Bar Doughnut was inspired by the “Start Me Up” cocktail. The pastry features bourbon and rum, so you’re definitely in for a treat.
Drunken donuts aren’t unheard of. There are a handful of donut shops in NYC that are adding booze to the dough.
If you’re 21 and over, you have our permission to get tipsy with these treats.
3. Snickers Donut
Tell Cafe Dulce your favorite candy bar, and they’ll put in in a donut. This shop is known for their creative recipes, but the Snickers Donut is a crowd favorite. They take snickers bars and roll them into the dough before frying it.
The end result? A chocolatey, nutty, deliciously, weird donut.
4. Grilled Cheese Donut
Nothing beats the comfort of a gooey grilled cheese sandwich — except for a gooey, grilled cheese donut! Say hello to your new favorite comfort food, the Grilled Cheese Donut.
You can find a grilled cheese donut in a few different shops. However, it was made most popular from Shark Tank contestants, Tom + Chee.
5. Green Tea Donut
Green is the new black. If you have a sweet-spot for clean ingredients, the Green Tea Donut at the Doughnut Plant will give you peace. If you thought that health and donuts couldn’t be used in the same sentence, they will prove you wrong.
Green tea is an ingredient that provides benefits to your heart, brain and bone health. We’ve seen the green ingredient make its way into our drinks, desserts, candy and now — donuts!
So, have as many as you want! They’re healthy, right?
