This weekend, Eric and I were in Santa Monica, so we stopped by Viva La Vegan to pick up a few new products to try. I have heard that they often have Ronald’s Donuts (from Las Vegas) and was thrilled to see a stack of pink donut boxes near the register. I ended up buying donuts from boxes that said “Sweet Thymes,” a bakery of which I had never heard, so I asked where it was located. I was told that it was based in Studio City, which is incredibly close to home, so I was really excited. After a little research, I am disappointed to say that it doesn’t look like they have a store front, but they can be ordered (minimum 12 donuts) for pickup or delivery.
I got two donuts to try and, of course, they were both chocolate. I don’t think there’s any donut worth having that doesn’t have chocolate. First I tried the typical puffy donut with chocolate frosting and sprinkles. The frosting was tasty, but the donut was a tad chewier than I remember typical donuts being.
Next, I bit into the very messy looking chocolate donut filled with chocolate tofu creme. The center was not as chocolatey as the toppings, but it was very, very creamy. The filling tasted like rich pudding. Long after I finished it, I was still thinking about it. This was the best donut I can remember having. Ever. Amazing. Now, if only they would open a store!
