Missoula, Mont. – 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 Missoula, where Tandem Doughnuts grabbed the number five spot. Tandem sells its vegan delights weekly at the Clark Fork farmer’s market and at a variety of local businesses. Specialties include Lemon Lavender, Chocolate Glazed, Strawberry Shortcake, Blackberry Ginger, Chocolate Cherry Pistachio, Carrot Cake With Creamy Icing, and the Red, White, and Blueberry for the Fourth of July.
“Like so many other successful companies, Tandem Doughnuts 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.”
Taking top honors is Mighty-O Donuts in Seattle. Rounding out the top six spots are Vegan Treats in Bethlehem, Pa.; Ronald’s Donuts in Las Vegas; Pepples Organic Donuts in the San Francisco area; and Le Cave’s Bakery in Tucson. Honorable mentions go to Voodoo Doughnut in Denver and Portland and Eugene, Ore., and Donut Friend in Los Angeles.
Tandem Doughnuts will receive a congratulatory letter and a framed certificate from PETA.
