Customize Your Own Donut at Poqet DONUTS in Irvine

Poquet Donuts in Orange County

for that past few weeks, the boys and i have been staying low and hanging out at home. but we decided to get out one day after school, and check out one of Orange County’ newest donut stores, Irvine-based poqet DONUTS. it’s the first doughnut shop around here that offers costumers the chance to customize their very own doughnuts. we really liked the idea of this, so we knew we needed to try it out.

Poquet Donutsthe name poqet, pronounced “pocket,” is derived from a folklore story of two best friends who met on a park bench daily to share doughnuts, which were kept in their pockets. the story of these “pocket donut” friends is placed on the wall inside the shop to provide a simple explanation of the name’s origins to guests.Poquet Donuts Menuof course the boys we excited to find out how the whole process of “customizing your own donut” worked. you get to pick out a plain donut, there are a variety of choices. then you can choose to fill it with homemade vanilla bean custard or strawberry jelly….or not! next you choose the frosting. maple and strawberry were the boys’ favorites.

it was fun to taste the donut creations everyone made. all my boys thought it was pretty cool to get to customize a donut….even if i personally thought some of their choices were somewhat questionable….like strawberry frosting topped with peanut butter cups and marshmallows. if it makes them happy, LOL!!!
