LOUISVILLE, Ky. — To celebrate the vibrancy of fall, Thorntons Inc. added a new limited-time sweet and salty treat to its bakery lineup. The Salted Caramel Donut is available now through Oct. 6 at Thorntons convenience stores in Louisville, southern Indiana, Lexington, Ky., Chicago and central Illinois.
The Salted Caramel Donut begins like Thorntons’ traditional glazed doughnuts, with handmade yeast dough cut into a ring and fried golden. Then, a smooth, sweet glaze cascades the ring before being dipped in a buttery caramel icing. Lastly, a touch of fleur-de-sel sea salt is sprinkled on top.
The resulting flavor is an instant favorite that satisfies consumers’ increased appetite for foods with bold, unexpected flavor combinations, according to the c-store retailer.
All of the chain's doughnuts are made fresh and delivered daily to each Thorntons location.
Louisville-based Thorntons operates 181 convenience stores in Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee and Florida.
