It West Philadelphia born and raised…Dottie’s Donuts has opened shop.

CBS Philly reports that the donut purveyors, who have attained a cult following from featuring their treats wholesale in local cafes, have debuted their own shop.  On March 18th, they opened the doors at 4529 Springfield Avenue, serving an array of their classics and hot drinks, from 7-3pm daily.

Co-owner Jeff Poleon told CBS that the team uses coconut milk and a corn and tapioca starch egg replacer to make sure people can’t tell their donuts apart from non-vegan ones. And as far as flavours go, he said, “we’ve got a powdered sugar, we’ve got a classic vanilla bean glaze, cinnamon sugar, coconut milk chocolate, lemon poppy, Earl Grey, milk chocolate with roasted cacao. The green one is matcha pistachio.” A cursory look at their Facebook and Instagram pages has us drooling for filled favourites like Boston Cream and PB+J, too.

Just another example of how vegan donuts are setting the trend this year! And it’s clear customers are happy, with a post boasting that around 1500 donuts were consumed on their second day in the new location.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z sell out veganism for ticket giveaway

Veganism deserves better than constantly being considered something to be bribed, dared or loosely entered into.

Month one of “the year of the vegan”

News outlets are abuzz with the promise of new vegan products, celebs, and services and how that is somehow a fresh affirmation that our world is one turn closer to being fully free from animal use.
