If you like to eat your donuts in style, head over to Donut Darlin’, the grooviest lil’ food truck in town.
Donut Darlin’ Food Truck, opened just over a year ago, whips up sugary little bunches of deep fried perfection (otherwise known as donuts).
The truck’s menu features 4 signature flavors; The Plain Jane, vanilla cake donuts topped with nothing but love; The Sandy Beach, vanilla cake donuts smothered in cinnamon sugar; Eskimo Bites, vanilla cake donuts covered in powdered sugar; and Sprinkles are for Winners, vanilla cake donuts coated with vanilla or chocolate icing and (you guessed it) rainbow sprinkles. Rotating specialty flavors include Donut Colada, Sopapadre Cheesecake, Blueberry Bites and What-What Banana Nut.
The only thing cuter than the mini donuts is Donut Darlin’ owner Taylor Laney herself. Laney, a Texas A&M senior studying construction science, said it’s difficult running her own business while attending school full time.
“I’m so in love with this and you know, you find your niche and it’s really hard to follow through with the whole school thing when you found what you want to do,” Laney said. “But I’ve got to get a degree. I’ve got to get out then I’ll go full time with this thing. This is what I want to do after I graduate, 320 percent this is what I want to do.”
Before opening her food truck turned local foodie destination, Laney dreamed of of owning a custom home building company. Then, she came across a little blue trailer and she had to have it.
The trailer was named ‘Holy Crepe’ and at the time Laney had every intention of opening up a crepe food truck until she tried making a crepe.
“I realized I was the worst crepe maker on this side of Mississippi,” Laney said.
So, she picked something she had a passion for: donuts.
“I just ran with it and now we’re here a year later,” Laney said. “Everyone has loved the trailer and the donuts and our whole vibe.”
Laney said she hopes to transform her truck into a brick and mortar after she graduates from A&M in December.
The 50s vibe on wheels roves around the city, popping up at festivals, football games and private events so if you see the retro blue truck, make sure to stop by and snag one of their darling creations.
