I love startups, and I love the idea of unicorns when it comes to startups. I’m mostly ambivalent about the fantasy creature. I’m not at all interested in the Starbucks Unicorn drink that came out years ago. But this… This here Doughnicorn is something I can kinda get behind. After all, when it comes to baked goods like cakes, funfetti is ma jam. And that’s exactly what this Doughnicorn is made of, funfetti.
It’s bright. It’s colorful. It’s got that fun to it. No doubt it’d be a hit with kids. And it is, too, for me. However, I do have to admit that even this doughnut is too sweet for me.
The heft of the donut gives a hint of what this donut is made of–kilos of sugar. Given my love for donuts, would you be surprised that even this donut caused me to take drinks of water in between bites just to water down the sweetness?
Credit this donut and Fashioned + Fried for creating a fun donut that will no doubt attract folks of all ages with the colors and nostalgic funfetti mix. If you’re gonna get this donut the next time they have a popup, have some water or milk nearby, just in case.
