Animal activism through vegan baking is hardly a new idea, but it is an idea that works wonders. Remember when vegan cupcakes took the world by storm a few years ago? Now, vegan bakeries are popping up all over the place.

Next up? Vegan doughnuts. I mean, don’t you miss a nice glazed soft delicious doughnut?

We won’t have to miss them for long if Dun-Well Doughnuts reaches their goal of raising fifteen grand to open up their vegan doughnut shop in Brooklyn. (I know. Brooklyn more and more is having all the fun.) The partners behind the campaign, Christopher Hollowell and Dan Dunbar, are just over two grand into their goal with 54 days left.

My desire for glazed anything seems downright quaint when you look and see the options they have on their website. French toast, peanut butter and jelly, berry blast, peach cobbler, maple blueberry, green tea and ginger, raspberry cheesecake and strawberry kiwi. Plus the traditional flavors like plain old chocolate with sprinkles.

Dun-Well Doughnuts already does a wholesale business delivering to NYC hot spots like Blossom Du Jour and Lulu’s Sweet Apothecary, but this would allow them to expand to be a retail location.  For all you caffeinated folks, coffee will be on the menu. Plus, ice-cream too. All vegan of course.

Like any crowd sourcing campaign, there are benefits. Give and get doughnut coupons, or a limited addition tee and a bunch of other cool rewards. Check out their indiegogo page, and watch their super adorable video for yourself.

    Uh-oh if this comes to Brooklyn (especially near my neighborhood) I will be in there constantly, getting fat.
