Oakland, Calif. – Who cares about doughnuts? PETA and millions of Americans do—that’s who! That’s why PETA’s “official” tasters set out to find the Top 6 Vegan-Friendly Doughnut Shops in the land in time for National Doughnut Day (June 6). Their travels took them to the Bay Area, where fourth place goes to Pepples Organic Donuts. Offering a delicious variety of all-vegan and organic doughnuts—including Double Blueberry, Salted Caramel, and Whiskey Tangerine Fig (or “WTF”)—Pepples is a top pick for tasty treats.
“Like so many other successful companies, Pepples Organic Donuts proves that meat-, dairy-, and egg-free foods are the best way to go,” says PETA Special Projects Manager Alicia Woempner. “All the bakeries on PETA’s list demonstrate how easy and delicious it is to choose cruelty-free treats, and Pepples’ doughnuts are as kind to the Earth and animals as they are to your taste buds.”
Pepples’ doughnuts can be found in its San Francisco and Oakland stores—where it also serves a delicious, organic vegan brunch on weekends—as well as in coffee shops and grocery stores throughout the Bay Area. Committed to helping the environment, Pepples offers exclusively compostable to-go boxes and encourages guests to bring reusable cups and plates from home.
Taking first place is Mighty-O Donuts in Seattle, and rounding out the top six spots are Vegan Treats in Bethlehem, Pa.; Ronald’s Donuts in Las Vegas; Tandem Doughnuts in Missoula, Mont.; and Le Cave’s Bakery in Tucson, Ariz. Honorable mentions go to Voodoo Doughnut in Denver and Portland and Eugene, Ore., and Donut Friend in Los Angeles.
Pepples Organic Donuts will receive a congratulatory letter and a framed certificate from PETA.
