To begin the experience, you first stand at the counter and see your donut being fried right in front of you. Then, on to the donut bar, and witness your selection being dressed up before your eyes.
There are three levels of donut options: Groovy, Far Out, and Funkadelic, which range, as their titles imply, from something pretty cool to the works.
Groovy selections are comprised of: plain, powdered sugar, glazed, and cinnamon sugar. Far Out donuts come with frosting; and Funkadelic ones are frosted plus any toppings.
There are over sixty donut combinations from which to choose, which include several popular cereal and candy bar toppings, as well as more exotic toppings like salted caramel macchiato, and the all-time customer favorite— maple bacon. Other popular options are Apple Pie, Raspberry Truffle, and Peanut Nutter.
In addition to the plain cake donut, by the middle of last year, the team had introduced two new flavors— Key lime pie and Robert Brûlée, a creme brûlée inspired donut.
