“The flavor is EXCELLENT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

Donut World has a superior product to the other donut chains. The secret is in the flavor....and I cannot put my finger on what that flavor is. The donuts are larger than Krispy Kreme and are taste filled like no other!

“Always Fresh...So Many Choices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

I have been to several Donut World locations and they are all consistently clean and what ever I have chosen has been very good and very fresh. Service is fast and efficient. My church ordered from here frequently and they have always been very good. Great place for other sweets too and it will not "break the bank" as some of the other dessert places do.

“Made the old fashion way”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Love the chocolate (devil food) donuts, sour cream, apple fritter, & cinnamon rolls. My 1st visit was while visiting, but now I make sure a get at least a dozen for the road & to carry back home. The cinnamon rolls & apple fritters aren't a big glob do dough, but right texture, etc.

Suggestion: I would love to see them try an "all chocolate/devil food sour cream" w/out icing.
