Bethlehem, Pa. – 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 Bethlehem, where second place goes to celebrated bakery Vegan Treats. Offering an ever-expanding variety of all-vegan doughnuts—including the best-selling Boston Cream doughnut, Bavarian cream–filled faschnachts, and cinnamon-sugar pretzel doughnuts—Vegan Treats is a delight for all doughnut lovers.

“Like so many other successful companies, Vegan Treats 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 Vegan Treats’ doughnuts are some of the most creative confections around.”

Vegan Treats’ other doughnut varieties include French Silk, S’mores, Pumpkin Mousse, Peanut Butter Crunch, and Coconut Custard. And for special events, the bakery even creates adorable miniature versions of its doughnuts. The all-vegan bakery also offers a wide variety of cakes, cupcakes, cheesecakes, cinnamon buns, brownies, and more, and its treats can be found in many restaurants along the East Coast.

Taking first place is Mighty-O Donuts in Seattle, and rounding out the top six spots are 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.

Vegan Treats 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
