Vegans can go nuts at FOUGHNUTS in Great Neck.
So there is a donut shop in Great Neck, Long Island that is mostly vegan. How fantastic, right?! Foughnuts bills itself as a more healthful donut. And that means… vegan options! (Don’t tell the folks that are still scared of the v-word.) I stopped by on a rainy Monday to do a taste test.
I expected one measly vegan option but was delighted to learn that the entirety of the large bakery case was vegan. At least 10 selections, maybe 12? All-vegan. So I did what any one person would do. I bought half a dozen.
From left to right, top row: Red velvet, Vanilla Birthday Cake, Samoa (drooool). Botton row: Raspberry Jammin’, Pumpkin Spice, Glazed Vanilla. See, not just one boring option. Long Island’s vegan game is brought!
Let’s look at them in a different formation.
My first try, the Vanilla Birthday Cake. Delicious, moist cake donut. I am so impressed.
Raspberry filled and spiced. Thank you, Foughnuts, for not having boring and uninspired vegan options. Outstanding.
What is that… Velvet? Yes, Red Velvet.
The vanilla glazed a day or so later.
The Samoa–sweet nostalgia.
I’ll be visiting again soon, Foughnuts! Keep up the wonderful vegan options!
