All Pepples Donuts are 100% organic and vegan. I love that they use all real ingredients and don’t add any preservatives. I think that fresh, non-processed food just tastes better. And against all of the traditional donut shops, I suppose they have found their niche in offering a vegan treat. However, I have yet to find a vegan offering that can truly rival its traditional counterpart. Some come close, but it’s just not quite the same. These donuts too, have their merit, but if you are looking for a traditional donut that just happens to be organic, you will need to change your expectations.
It’s hard not to compare these to regular donuts, but for the purpose of this review I am trying to not measure them against the traditional treat that I so love. Would I choose this over Krispy Kreme or my childhood favorite, Dunkin Donuts? Probably not. But if I were a vegan, would I run out and buy a dozen? Yes, I would – probably two. They certainly have an extensive variety of flavors from which to choose, so there is something for everyone to enjoy.
