How long has it been since you’ve had a Spudnut? If it’s been awhile, we’re happy to announce that we now carry them in our bakeries! If you have never tried a Spudnut, or for that matter, haven’t heard of them – let’s talk about them for a moment.
According to the folks at Wikipedia.com, “Spudnut Shops were a franchised chain of stores selling potato flour donuts called Spudnuts.” While that franchise is long gone, we now offer a dozen count boxes of Tasty Bakery Spudnuts from one of our suppliers. This begs the question, “What is a Spudnut made of?” Simply put, it is typically a donut that is sometimes made from mashed potatoes or potato starch, or in the case of the spudnuts we carry, largely from potato flour – rather than everyday standard flour. This difference creates a donut with a distinct taste all its own and is a nice change if you’re looking for something new or novel in the world of donuts.
We hope the next time you are looking for a fun treat to take to a summer picnic event; you try some of our Spudnuts. These are available in all of our stores and we’ll most likely be offering some promotions on them from time-to-time.
