Iowa has its very first 'The Donut Experiment,' and it's located right here in the City of Five Seasons. I stopped by and grabbed a box this morning and the reviews in the office were a unanimous "YUM!"

Jen Bentley runs 'The Donut Experiment' in Cedar Rapids and walked me through the process that customers can expect:

  • You begin with a fresh, warm vanilla cake donut
  • You select an icing and a topping for each one
  • Your taste buds arrive in heaven (Ok, I actually added this one but it's true!)

The Donut Experiment actually started in 2012 in Anna Maria, Florida. It was known then as Anna Maria Donuts. Just six years later, there are now a total of nine locations of The Donut Experiment. You'll find them in Florida, Massachusetts, Ohio, South Carolina, Illinois, and now Cedar Rapids, Iowa!

The Donut Experiment in Cedar Rapids is at 5300 Fountains Drive NE, Suite 104. It's just south of Edgewood Road, off Blairs Ferry Road. They're currently open daily from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Your taste buds will thank you for the visit.
