What rhymes with popcorn? Donuts. But only when your mouth is full. You could take our word for it, though we recommend trying it for yourself. It’s National Donut Day, ya’ll!
Popcorn and donuts are probably not the most conventional duo, but Chicago donut legends Stan’s and Do-Rite have both created specialty popcorn donuts in the past. And if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for us.
Since popcorn donuts aren’t standard offerings at our favorite bakeries, we came up with a simple way to transform any donut into a popcorn donut. Find your style below to sample one of our tried-and-true pairings!
Classic — Glazed Donut + Sweetie, You Salty
Wild — Apple Fritter + In a Caramel Nutshell
Bold — Chocolate donut + Easy Peasy Caramel Cheesy
Brave — Vanilla long john + In Queso Fire
