Is the Doughnut Trend Here to Stay in Rhode Island?

By August 29, 2017Bakery, Food trends

It may seem like the fried treats are suddenly all the rage, but they’ve always been popular with Rhode Islanders, who grew up having doughnut shops on every corner and doughnut cakes for birthdays. From Allie’s Donuts in North Kingstown to Ma’s Donuts in Newport and Sip‘n Dip locations in the East Bay, bakeries have been serving them to customers’ delight for decades. A 2010 study by market-research firm NPD Group listed the Providence metropolitan area as having more doughnut shops per capita than any other region in the United States. Of course, this figure includes Dunkin’ Donuts (there are 179 locations in Rhode Island alone) and Honey Dew Donuts chains.
