My First Vegan Donut

A thing of beauty: a vegan strawberry frosted donut from Sweet Avenue Bake Shop. Even more beautiful, it was on sale for $1 (from its regular price of $2).

When I read that Sweet Avenue Bake Shop in Rutherford, NJ, started offering vegan donuts, I had to try them out! The verdict: tasty. Would go great with a glass of chocolate soy milk or coffee with soy creamer. Just a tad greasy, but I guess it is a donut. More cakey than the non-vegan version you will find at Dunkin' Donuts. I took a strawberry and a chocolate frosted donut home for a taste test, and the strawberry was the absolute favorite.

Compassion Over Killing has launched a campaign to urge Dunkin' Donuts to take the cruelty out of their 52 varieties of donuts, all of which contain eggs and dairy. Learn more about the campaign, including how you can contact them, here. Don't forget to request soy milk too!
