RICHMOND, Va. — It is no secret, a doughnut craze has taken over Central Virginia. Newcomers like Duck Donuts, Sugar Shack and Dixie Donuts have combined with more established places like Krispey Kreme, Dunkin’ Donuts and Country Style Donuts to offer Central Virginians numerous options when it comes to spending their doughnut dollars. Now thrillist.com has named one local doughnut shop among the 33 best in the nation. And the honor goes to… Sugar Shack.
A Virginia favorite since 2013 when it first opened in Carver, then downtown Richmond, Sugar Shack has now expanded to NoVa, and has bigger expansion plans in place in Maryland, Charlottesville, and even FLORIDA. And though we will wait with bated breath for them to eventually take over the world, you’ll have to travel to the Mid-Atlantic as of now to try their absolutely delicious handmade creations. Also, we must admit: the fact that they created a CADBURY EGG DONUT for Easter, and have legendary Irish dough bombs for St. Patrick’s Day has quickly put them at the top of our list. COME TO NEW ORLEANS/CALIFORNIA PLEASE!
