Unbelievable products!

I don't normally eat donuts because they are too heavy. That said, I could have eaten a dozen of these donuts and been completely happy... The donuts were fresh, piping hot and unique in the different flavors that they offered. It gets crowded, especially in the morning, but they move people in... read more

I read all the reviews before trying them. I was hyped. Honestly I believe that the donuts were as good as the ones at the gas station.

Amazing, whole family looks forward to this place when we go to ocean city. Get some at least every other day when we are there and we even took 6 home with us which only lasted the car ride! Some people mention the price(like $13 for a dozen) but it is well worth it! Highly recommend the strawberry shortcake, blueberry... More

Really great donuts when they are right out of the fryer. All kinds of flavors, really yummy. Get there early as the line can go out the door. Favorite of the locals too.

I don't eat pastries or doughnuts very often, but the hype had me intrigued. Very good doughnuts. Waiting in line for a long time is a downer and I won't likely return for more.

I've been enjoying Duck Donuts for years and raving over them. Heard that Fractured Prune was better and looked forward to trying them. Just had my chance and have to say i'm confused. Fractured Prune's donuts were very disappointing. Very greasy, falling apart, thin icing. How anyone would compare them to Duck Donuts is beyond me. I wouldn't even compare... More

We have Fractured Prune every other morning of our beach week every single year and they've yet to provide less than luscious, carby perfection. I've noticed them showing up on nation-wide "Best Doughnuts" lists lately and was not the least bit surprised. They really are that good. Need to know: These are perfectly tender cake doughnuts, no yeast doughnuts here.... More

I have visited the Fractured Prune many times the donuts are pretty good but they are rather pricey. If you don't get there early many options will be sold out. Give it a try but take your wallet!!!
