With all the food truck craze going on around here and all over the country, I really can’t believe this is the first food truck review we’ve posted. The food truck trend lives in abundance here with food truck round-ups and a great number of trucks at farmers markets….in addition to hardly being able to drive very far without running into one.
Today we’re spotlighting Art City Donuts, which serves up fresh hot mini donuts with a variety of delicious toppings. They feature a few specialties each day or you can choose your own toppings. The specialties this day were The Blueberry Crumble (blueberry frosting & crumb topping), The Southern Belle (bananas, chocolate icing, cream cheese icing, & whipped cream), & The Sweet Pig (maple icing with bacon crumbles). Specialties run $6-7 a have 18 mini donuts…plenty to share! Standard donuts cost $3 for 8, $4 for 12, and $5 for 18 donuts coated in cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar, or icing (chocolate, glaze, maple, sprinkles, or coconut crunch).
This day we went with a classic: Maple!
See those babies? Yum, yum! They were hot and melt-in-your mouth. This is the large basket of 18 donuts. They reminded me of a really light, super fresh pillows of yellow cake. The maple icing was perfect, too!
The only downside was the wait, at least on that day. The line was not that long at the truck, but the wait seemed like forever. I think it was 10-15 minutes. It seems like it would be pretty fast since the donuts all seem the same and it’s just the toppings that are different. I’ve heard others say that were impressed by how fast they got their orders, so maybe this was unusual. I hope so.
I would love to try one of the specialties, especially one with fruit…hello, it’s like a donut sundae! If you have a list of food trucks to try (Is that weird? Yes, I have one.), definitely put Art City Donuts on there. Since they’re a food truck, you’ll have to keep up with their constant movement on Facebook or Twitter to see where they’ll be next.
