California Donuts

Dec 8, 2016

When I was little, I used to wake up really early on the weekends.  I would wake up early for one incredibly special reason – so my dad could take me to get donuts for our family. I remember feeling so special for two reasons: 1) I got to pick out everyone’s donuts, and 2) I got to do it with my dad. Carrying that big pink box home gave me this huge feeling of satisfaction; a feeling that I still get to this day. Since moving to LA I’ve been trying to find a donut shop that brings me as much joy as my favorite shop from home. I’ve tried quite a few donut shops, let me tell ya, but none of them compare. I have, however, fallen in love with California Donuts.


While California Donuts may not give you that big pink box, you always leave with a smile. Their donuts are so cute and colorful making it almost impossible to eat… almost. They range from your average glazed donuts to donuts with lucky charms on them! My personal favorite was the little panda face donut. It took me about an hour to finally take a bite, but it tasted just as good as it looked.


It’s easy to forget how lucky I am that I am even able to eat doughnuts. So many people are not as fortunate. 1 in 5 kids in the U.S. don’t get the food they need every day. Help end childhood hunger and visit With our support, this organization is working to ensure that every kid in America has access to healthy food!
