Seattle – 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 ended in Seattle, where top honors go to the Emerald City’s Mighty-O Donuts, located in the historic Wallingford neighborhood. With 40 varieties of all-vegan doughnuts—including the best-selling French Toast doughnut, a spice cake doughnut with maple glaze, cinnamon, and powdered sugar—Mighty-O has a mighty hold on number one.

“Like so many other successful companies, Mighty-O proves that meat-, dairy-, and egg-free donuts is 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 Mighty-O especially takes the cake doughnut.”

Mighty-O produces a rainbow of raised and cake doughnuts—including glazed, chocolate, and fruit-flavored ones. It also uses organic ingredients and donates doughnuts to local nonprofit organizations.

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; 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.

Mighty-O will receive a congratulatory letter and a framed certificate from PETA.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
