Let’s Talk About Crosstown’s New Vegan Chocolate & Honeycomb Doughnut
We’re always here for vegan launches (especially when they come to us and include tastings). Check out what happened when the best vegan doughnuts got sent to our HQ.
The doughnut in question
The latest band member to join the Crosstown cohort is really something to behold.

Crosstown’s vegan black cocoa dough cocoons a rich dark chocolate custard, with a generous speckling of honeycomb. An indulgent layer of chocolate ganache is individually pallet knifed onto each doughnut and then finished with a shower of honeycomb pieces and chocolate soil.
What is vegan honeycomb?
Right, that’s understandably a confusing name, but we’re not talking beehive honeycomb here – you can exhale now.
This is the centre of a Crunchie bar honeycomb, the kind from the second round in The Squid Games where sugar is melted and bicarbonate of soda is added to cause a giant golden fizz.

Yes, it’s just as Insta-worthy as the rest of their doughnuts
Just look at this shot and decide for yourself. Doesn’t it just fit perfectly between a Tongan Vanilla Bean Glaze and Cinnamon Scroll?
How does it taste?
Alexa, play A Moment Like This by Leona Lewis.
To say we enjoyed it is an understatement. Here were some highlights from the team in no particular order:
“So nice to bite into It’s soft and pillowy.”
“It’s got more filling than the truffle ring – my favourite up until now.”
“Custard fillings are underrated, this is lovely.”
“Hear me out, it tastes like school doughnuts, but totally in the best way, I love school doughnuts – this is a compliment.”
“I thought the honeycomb crumb was hazelnuts. They’re not hazelnuts. This is much better.”
And my personal favourite comment, “Not heavy’”.
