(Frickin' Delights Donuts)

It’s always a good day when we hear there’s a new hot spot for baked goods in the city.

Even better when we hear they’re good for you, too!

Frickin’ Delights Donuts, originally from Alberta, confirmed on social media that they’re officially on the way to YYJ—and they’ve secured a sweet little spot on Yates Street.

The confectionary company, founded in 2013 by a husband and wife duo, began selling from a converted laundry room in Devon, Alberta. In 2017, they opened a brick and mortar location which saw people driving from all over just to get their hands on the delicious baked goods.

Frickin’ Delights donuts not only look delicious, they’re also 100% vegan, made fresh daily, and come in a large variety of different flavours.

They use ingredients like local wholegrain flour, applesauce, soft brown sugar, sea salt and coconut milk, and their donuts are dairy free and egg free—meaning they’re safe for those with those allergies.

Though the donut shop confirmed on Facebook they’ve taken possession of their new spot at 632 Yates Street, they have yet to announce an official opening date, just that it’s slated for February; so make sure to keep an eye on their social media!

“We would like to thank the people of Lekwungen Territory/Victoria for taking in a couple of married donut makers,” reads the Facebook post.

“It has been our dream to call this city home. We are proud to bring to you what we love doing and look forward to learning, creating and growing in this community. We have been welcomed with kindness, enthusiasm and tremendous support, which we are beyond grateful for.”

With flavours like Chocolate Earl Grey, Coffee Crisp and Apple Cider, we can’t wait to check them out for ourselves—which flavour are you most excited to try?!
