“Awesome Hot Donuts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

My family always stops at the Fractured Prune at least once during our yearly trip to the Delaware beaches. Normally I prefer yeast/raised donuts over the cake style, but the Fractured Prune donuts are a welcome exception for me. I love the number of choices -- you can even design your own. My favorites are the OC Sand (honey glaze with cinnamon sugar) and the Peanut Butter Cup (peanut butter glaze and mini chocolate chips). If you are in the area, it's definitely worth a stop!

“Fast service and friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

If you have ever been to a Fractured Prune you know that you have to wait for EVER in these shops, but it is worth the wait. A friend told me about the Fractured Prune in Rehoboth Beach and said that he did not have a long wait. We tried it and he was right, in and out in about 10 minutes. So if you are heading to Ocean City and are taking route 1 down stop at the Fractured Prune at 20214 Coastal Highway, Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971

“Always yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

Every trip to Rehoboth Beach deserves a stop one morning at the Fractured Prune. Yes, the donuts are hot and yummy, but the novelty of being able to create your own flavors of donuts can't be beat. We always love to open the box to an incredibly colorful bit of deliciousness. We find a new and better flavor each year. This year our favorite was raspberry with granulated sugar.

“Donut Delights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Hot donuts in flavors to please everyone. There are no words to describe how good these donuts taste. The Chocolate Covered Cherry donut is just heaven. Don't wait...eat them while they are hot!

“Over-Priced Doughnut Chain”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

The Doughnuts are fresh, hot and tasty, but very highly priced. I understand the attraction, who wouldn't like fried dough with sugar and sprinkles just be prepared to drop a lot of cash. Bring a wetnap!
