DENVER (Nov. 27, 2012) – LaMar’s Donuts has created what is sure to be a fan favorite—the Peppermint Iced Devil’s Food Cake Donut, available for a limited time beginning Nov. 23.
Ushered in on Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving), the holiday donut’s special flavor combines chocolate devil’s food cake covered in smooth peppermint icing with festive red sugar sprinkled on top.
It’s decadent, delicious, and fun – and it’s available to lovers of fine donuts at any LaMar’s Donuts location nationwide until Jan. 2, 2013.
“We are offering the Peppermint Iced Devil’s Food Cake Donut throughout the holidays because the smooth peppermint and rich chocolate tastes pair perfectly with the season,” said Kayde Pierce, spokesperson for LaMar’s.
This seasonal donut is something of a throwback to the devil’s food donuts founder Ray LaMar began making in 1933.
As in the old days, all LaMar’s donuts—including their newest Peppermint Iced Devil’s Food Cake special—are still made entirely by hand every day. Never using mass-production techniques, LaMar’s employees personally create each donut, from hand-kneading the dough to applying the icing.
That’s the LaMar’s difference, and it’s a difference you can taste in the Peppermint Iced Devil’s Food Cake Donut, available from Nov. 23, 2012 to Jan. 2, 2013.
After developing his original donut recipe as a teenager in 1933, Ray Lamar opened the first LaMar’s Donuts in 1960 in Kansas City, Missouri. Today the franchised chain has 27 stores in Kansas, Missouri, Colorado, Nebraska, Alabama and Arizona. LaMar’s has won numerous awards and favorable reviews by such publications as The New Yorker and Gourmet magazine, and was the first donut to be reviewed and acclaimed by Zagat, the world’s most trusted guide to restaurants. LaMar’s Donuts are proclaimed by many as “simply a better donut.”
