The Creative Vegan Donut Frenzy At Whole Foods Market

"Just a friendly reminder to keep donut eating to a minimum," often said Vegan Jimina Cricket on my shoulder. It's hard to listen to her during a Whole Foods Market trip. I have been to that store many times. My heart stops, absolutely devastated when the vegan donuts are gone.
Whole Foods Market is surprisingly upping the vegan donut game. With impressive filled and powdered treats filling their bakery display cases, the popular grocery chain is jumping onto the dairy and egg free pastry wagon. Just the other day, they introduced an orange mango creme filled donut topped with dried mango. It was incredibly divine by the way.

This is the pancake donut. It had a light dusting of powdered sugar on top.
While the exterior tasted like a genuine pancake (hint of salt and all), the fluffy cream filling was thick and luscious, maple syrup notes flavoring each bite.
So so good....
Donuts also provide stamina during an intense drawing session. Thus, Whole Foods had created the blueberry pancake donut-- perfect fuel.
The vanilla blueberry cream center was wicked heaven. I'm drooling fondly over the memory....
A few weeks later, four vegan donuts were offered at the same time and they were all available. That is rare. Of course, Vegan Jemina Cricket wasn't pleased.
This apple cinnamon donut was good. I'm not a huge fan of crisp icing. I suppose that happens when holding onto a donut longer than a day. It's impossible to eat more than one within twenty four hours. One can feel the sugar coursing through them. That jolt is enough to survive on. Still, the cinnamon sprinkle was wonderful. For a moment, I could believe that this cinnamon and apples were a healthy treat.
The glossy filling alone is flickered with giant apple chunks.
Cherry lime became my absolute favorite. Cherry fiend spirit soared right through this beauty with lime frosting and plump amount of cherry cherry filling. It was a very fruity, very sweet experience.
I love cherry lime with all my heart and vow to request this flavor everyday. The blueberry pancake donut is also a second favorite. I hope that the bakers continue exploring, that new combinations take up glass display case, and tempt non-vegans as well. A cashier told me that she choses vegan donuts purely because they're not only damn good, the flavors are unique and fun. Another male employee repeated same sentiments. That often makes me smile, knowing that veganism is carving a small dent in the bakery aisle-- a place people truly believe cannot be tasty without eggs and dairy.

  1. Wow, they look so good! Cherry lime sounds like a really bold flavour combination to me. I'd also like to try the vanilla blueberry cream and the pancake one.

    A little donut shop just opened up near me with 3 vegan options every day. It's the best/worst thing that has ever happened to me!
