Once, in the dark days before Instagram, doughnuts were pooh-poohed as sugar bombs for kids. Not anymore. Rhode Island is having a bona fide doughnut explosion, with gourmet confections in unimaginably delicious varieties filling up our social media feeds – and our bellies. From the lines out the door at PVDonuts and Knead in Providence, to the square treats at 4corners Coffee in Warwick, to the only-in-Newport varieties like Marble House at Liberty Donuts, there’s never been a better time to taste-test your way through your weekend mornings. True Rhode Islanders will always love our Allie’s doughnut cake, but isn’t life a little sweeter when there’s a food trend like this?
