Organic Donuts. No, Really.

Mmmm….organic donuts. Perhaps an oxymoron, but I’m a fan. You can get your hands on these little bundles of fried doughy goodness at the Carpe Donut mobile in Charlottesville, VA. Owners Matt Rohdie and Jen Downey dreamed up the divine fried dough creations as a way to combine their restaurant and entrepreneurial experience into the perfect food-on-wheels business. And to this, I say “Bravo”!

The donuts are made from organic apple cider, eggs, flour, and non-hydrogenated soybean oil. Simple. Organic. And addictive. From personal experience at a recent Smashing Pumpkins concert, I can attest to their crispy-on-the-outside, tender and cakey on the inside deliciousness.

You’ll find the Carpe Donut mobile (aka Gypsy) doling out apple cider donuts, organic coffee, fresh mulled hot cider and cioccolata at Charlottesville’s downtown mall on Friday mornings, at the mall’s pavilion during concerts and events, and at regional festivals.

Funnel cake, watch your back.

  1. Unbelievable! I had no idea that the Smashing Pumpkins were back together. Sans Jimmy? Sans D’arcy?

    Carpe Donut: I think I’m inspired to try and make an organic donut. Good on Carpe Donut for living the dream! And how boheme Gypsy looks.

  2. I dont think they ever broke up (maybe for a little while in the late 1990s) but yeah, D’Arcy is gone and so is James. This is my third time seeing them and while i still LOVE songs from Gish and other early days, I’m not a big fan of the new stuff. Still the donuts were yummy!
