Kosher Donuts?

Does anyone have a place they can recommend for kosher donuts in any part of the greater LA area? Preferably somewhere that has more than just a couple flavors but MUST be kosher. Thanks for your help!

  1. This might help, at Krispy Kream all doughnut ingredient are Kosher. Their mix plant in Winston-Salem, NC where the mix is made is certified Kosher. In addition, some of their stores, but not all, have been certified Kosher. The only animal by-products used in their doughnuts are eggs (whites and yolks) and dairy products (including milk, butter, yogurt, whey, nonfat milk and nonfat whey). They use only vegetable shortening (palm, soybean, and/or cottonseed). To get a complete listing of stores that have been Kosher certified call 1-800-4KRISPY.

    1. Try Schwartz Bakery on Fairfax.

          Second posting to the Kosher board - there are a few kosher bakeries in the Pico/Robertson neighborhood as well the Fairfax area but be warned Donuts are not a staple of a kosher bakery - at least I have not found a good kosher donut from a kosher bakery other than those from Dunkin Donut or Krispy Kreme branches that are under supervision.. The only exception to this is around the time of channukah when bakeries will maked an Israeli style jelly filled doniut called Sofganiyot - these are quite good.
