For years, I have been listening to my organic Good Food Friend, Dennis Weaver, who, subsequently was named by my esteemed colleague, Dan Bolton, the “Organic Zealot,” talk about his favorite donut shop in the world, Mighty-O Donuts. In New York, where Entenmann’s has been a household staple before I was even born, the thought of an organic donut was just unheard of, unless, you have a great recipe and can make them yourself. With commercials claiming that “The World Runs on Dunkin,®” I found it rather comical that my vegan friends so nicely began to promote how the world runs FROM Dunkin in their Dunkincruelty.com campaign in an effort to get them to offer vegan donuts. People assume that anything organic, much less anything vegan has to taste awful and people will never buy it. The days of organic being strictly for the hippies who sport Birkenstocks and tie dyes are over. Organic is here to stay! One day donut connoisseur, Ryan Kellner, searched to find a donut that did not contain all of the preservatives and additives that are used to make donuts. To his dismay, he could not find one bakery, brand or mix. So, he decided that donut lovers deserved to enjoy a donut that is made with organic ingredients and created his own bakery called Mighty-O Donuts (http://www.mightyo.com). His donuts contain no chemical preservatives, no hydrogenated oils (no trans fats), no colorings or artificial flavors and no animal derived ingredients, which also make them cholesterol free. They refuse to compromise their ingredient standards and strive to produce quality donuts that taste good with each bite. In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer will talk to Ryan Kellner about his quest for making organic donuts a new American favorite. So grab a cup of hot organic coffee and stay tuned!
