Fractured Prune . . . Whaaaat?
While eating a delicious brunch ‘al fresco’ one morning, we had a lively discussion about a nearby shop called the Fractured Prune. Before wandering back to our car we stopped to see what this intriguing shop was all about Discovering a curiously creative doughnut shop, we HAD to go in – add a dessert on top of brunch!
Similar to the fun of watching my Krispy Kreme “comfort-food” doughnuts formed, raised, and cooked, the Fractured Prune offers an entertaining view of the doughnuts being made and cooked.
But then – it all goes different!!
Once these light and airy ‘cake’ style doughnuts are cooked (which occurs much faster than the raised Krispy Kreme doughnuts) they are custom frosted and decorated to order.
“Nobody else is doing what we’re doing. Where others offer rows of preconceived doughnut flavors, we’re offering infinite choices. Why? Because we believe in the individual and that there’s no wrong way to make your delicious.”
You may create an exotic taste like the VooDoo doughnuts (bacon-maple or cereal-sprinkles) or remain conservative.
Initially, I was really conservative and had a plain one – no fancy fixings because … I LIKE plain cake doughnuts! Oh my goodness …. the freshness and ‘plainness’ brought back fond memories of eating fresh cooked ‘plain’ cake doughnuts at the top of Pikes Peak. (I hope they are still selling fresh cooked doughnuts up there – it makes the experience at that oxygen-deprived altitude even more fun!)
The Fractured Prune® Doughnuts were SO fresh the box was almost too HOT to hold! We had to wait for the doughnuts to cool off enough just to pick one up, let alone eat it. The wait was worth it! Just plain is just Fine!
And the choices beyond the ‘plain’ seem almost infinite:
” there are 155,648 different combinations of doughnut awesomeness available at stores offering 19 glazes and 13 toppings – and that doesn’t even include our limited time offer glazes and toppings! Bottom line, Fractured Prune offers some tasty possibilities.”
Fractured Prune® Doughnuts originated in Ocean City (Maryland) and is named after the spunky Prunella Shriek, known as “Fractured Prunella” for the broken bones she suffered competing in traditionally men’s sports even into her 70s. Fractured Prune® Doughnuts celebrates her legacy with a doughnut as individual as the person ordering it!
Fractured Prune® Doughnuts are expanding their market with franchise stores. Watch for one near you!!
