Have a Donut

Posted by on January 16 at 10:05 AM

On Friday morning, Mighty O donuts delivered two boxes (and them some) of donuts to The Stranger’s offices. Mighty O is a local company that makes donuts using no partially hydrogenated vegetable oils (which is the source of trans fat, the evil fat), no dairy products (which makes them vegan), and organic ingredients (coconuts, peanuts, raspberries, etc). The other thing about Mighty O donuts: they’re pretty. They’re striped. And if you didn’t know they aren’t made the way donuts are made everywhere else, you probably wouldn’t be able to guess.

I tried to get as much of the staff to eat them as I could. One writer said, “There is no trans fat in these donuts? I don’t believe that. We’ve got to take them to a lab and test them.” Another said, as she shoveled one into her wheat-allergic self, “I don’t eat donuts. These are good. I’m going to break out into a rash soon.” Another said, “They have a nice clean taste.” Which, unbeknownst to him, echoed Mighty O’s motto: “The cleanest hole in town.”

Yeah I love to think about santorum when deciding where to buy my morning doughnuts.

Mighty-O donuts rock. What annoys me are all of the local baristas who feel compelled to WARN people when they order them, "now, you know those are vegan!". And about half the time, people change their order. . . apparently assuming that the warning means the donuts taste different somehow for their lack of dairy. They don't. They just taste like good donuts. Further evidence that coffee people in this city hate good pastry.
