For the third year running, Lucky’s Doughnuts has partnered with Dining Out For Life to create a one-of-a-kind doughnut to mark BC’s largest restaurant and hospitality fundraiser.
On Thursday, March 30th — the official start of the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival — all proceeds from sales of Lucky’s Doughnuts’ seasonal Sakura doughnut will benefit Dining Out For Life in support of meal and nutrition programs for individuals and families affected by HIV/AIDS and other co-existing illnesses.
Lucky’s Sakura doughnuts are classic filled Bismarcks infused with Japanese Sakura blossoms and filled with house-made sweet red bean paste. They’re then topped off with a strawberry-Sakura glaze, a dollop of matcha meringue and a mini Sakura blossom shortbread cookie.
Each Sakura doughnut comes in a beautiful, custom-designed box, making it the perfect treat to bring friends and family over Easter weekend.
Sakura has been one of the more interesting fresh ingredients that Lucky’s Doughnuts co-founder Colter Jones has had the opportunity to work with. “Why Sakura?,” he says. “We’re always up to experiment with new flavours and bring our customers something that they’ve never tried before.” The doughnuts will be available in very limited amounts due to the supply of salt-packed Sakura blossoms we’ve imported from Japan.”
And limited they are: Lucky’s Sakura doughnuts are $5 a pop will be sold on a first-come-first-served basis each day. Once they’re gone, they’re gone!
Lucky’s Doughnuts is located at Forty Ninth Parallel Café at 2198 West 4th Avenue.
