Every kind of food nowadays is ďgourmet,Ē ďhandmadeĒ or ďartisan.Ē If a hot dog can be gourmet, there isnít a type of food that canít be branded that way. Sometimes being gourmet is just a name, but Pink Box Doughnuts is truly a gourmet doughnut shop in the best way possible.

Pink Box Doughnuts offers 35 varieties on any given day, all made with the freshest ingredients and unique flavor profiles. You'll even find the much sought after cronut! If youíre foodie that looks for random types of gourmet eats, you may be familiar with gourmet doughnuts from Voodoo Doughnuts in Portland, OR. Voodoo Doughnuts may not be where gourmet doughnuts began but itís where they became popular.

The first Pink Box Doughnuts opened in the Las Vegas suburbs on Lake Mead near Buffalo. In a short time, it was known for itís inventive and unique doughnuts like the Fat Elvis, a chocolate-frosted doughnut stuffed with peanut butter and topped with banana. Yes, it tastes as insane as you'd imagine. It's more doughnut than any one person should consume. This writer is absolutely hooked, though, on the Macon Baple Bar. Itís difficult to say sober and almost impossible after a few drinks are in your system. This maple-glazed doughnut bar is topped with freshly made smoky bacon. The sweet and salty combination is unlike any other.

The Lake Mead Pink Box location also became popular because itís open 24 hours on the weekend. Sweets after a night of partying. What could go wrong? Absolutely nothing. In fact, it's spawned offspring. Pink Box Doughnuts is an independently operated store, but has recently expanded to be closer to the masses that visit Las Vegas with a location in Town Square.

You may still need a taxi to get to Pink Box Doughnuts, but this is a bakery that is unlike anything youíll find on The Strip. If your excitement to try the different flavors is bigger than your stomach, donít worry. The doughnuts usually hold overnight. The Town Square location is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday. Depending on the type of donut you choose, pricing ranges from $8.50 to $12.50 for a dozen. For more information, check out the Town Square website.

I initially went for cronut also. They didn't have made so I ended up trying a bunch of others. Maybe this is what I need today. :)
