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.
