The average American consumer eats
we'll attract a lot of people during
the summer," Busken says.
General Mills Foodservice corporate chef Nancy Maurer offers an
additional way to use ice cream on
"Another trend we are tracking is
donuts topped with ice cream, with
a scoop of ice cream placed in the
hole, and topped with chocolate
syrup and sprinkles-a donut cake
sundae," Maurer says.
Breakfast sandwiches are another
way to go with your donuts. Eleonora
Lahud of C&H Sugar says that the
company has noticed a rising trend
in donut breakfast sandwiches. She
suggests the idea of a parmesan
donut ﬁlled with ham, cheese and
a perfectly cooked egg.
PVDonuts ﬁnds a great deal of
value in LTOs. Several years ago,
it debuted a Thanksgiving mealin-one pastry, the "Friendsgiving"
donut. The item was so popular
during the holiday that PVDonuts
decided to bring it back for another
year, and has done that ever since.
"Friendsgiving" starts with a
brioche donut as the base. It is then
topped with cranberry glaze, slices
of fried chicken (chicken works
better with the donut), mashed
potatoes, stuffing, and gravy.
"People line up over those three
days. It's ridiculous," says co-founder
Lori Kettelle. "People love that and
we do it every year now. We got
great feedback from that one."
Another savory donut that
PVDonuts offers only two days
during the year is its Pizza Donut.
For National Pizza Day and Father's
Day, the shop takes a brioche donut
and ﬁlls it with red sauce. Then, the
donut is topped with mozzarella
and melted in an oven. Finally, it's
sprinkled with more cheese and
topped with a slice of pepperoni.
"For Father's Day, we were trying
to think of something fun to do.
We had seen other places do pizza
donuts, but no one had done it ﬁlled.
We decided to try it out, and it was
a big hit," Kettelle says.
The shop also did a special donut
to honor one of many Americans'
favorite television shows, "The
Office." Based on the show's free
pretzel day episode, PVDonuts put
18 toppings on its Michael Scott
Donut: sweet glaze, cinnamon
sugar, chocolate, white chocolate,
fudge, M&Ms, caramel dip, mint chip,
chocolate chip, marshmallows, nuts,
toffee nuts, coconut, peanut butter
drizzle, Oreos, sprinkles, cotton
candy bits, and powdered sugar.
Fun non-traditional "holidays" can
be great opportunities for special
ﬂavors. For example, Sugar Shack
Bakery in Virginia has seen signiﬁcant success in its limited-time Harry
Potter-themed donut, in honor of
Harry Potter's birthday. The donut
was so popular that the bakery
allowed only two donuts per in-store
purchase when launched to keep up
Based on the famous butterbeer
beverage, the Golden Snitch donut
features the taste of crème soda and
butterscotch. It's topped with gold
stars and a donut hole with wings.
