Our final week of Harry Potter donuts is Slytherin. All week we’ll offer our Slytherin Donut as our Downtown Donut.
Slytherin is not so scrumptious as our previous weeks. It’s covered in green vanilla icing, crushed mint Oreo, and a gummy worm that is either sweet or sour (you won’t know until you take a bite).
Come get your Slytherin donut until Halloween! We’re also going to have a special Harry Potter dozen you can pick up for your Halloween parties. Stay tuned for more details.
It’s our 3rd week of Harry Potter themed donuts. This week: Hufflepuff!
We’re using a chocolate black icing, yellow sprinkles, and a chocolate banana pocky stick wand.
We’re still following our theme of Harry Potter, and the houses of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
This week we have a Ravenclaw donut: a royal blue blueberry icing, graham cracker crumble, and a hat (chocolate cookie and HERSHEY’S kiss), and a pretzel wand.
This week starts our 4 weeks of Harry Potter in October. That will lead us right to Halloween.
The Downtown Donut this week is for the Gryffindor house, scarlet and gold. Lemon icing, red and yellow sprinkles, and a couple pretzel stick wands.
We were going to wait another week or two, but the weather next Sunday is going to be in the mid 80s again.
The weather is so cool this week, we have to do it one more time. Apple Cider Donuts!
Come buy them by the half dozen and dozen. Last time we did this, there wasn’t a line for most of the night.
Chocolate is just too delicious, we had to double-down, and add a little vanilla.
The Downtown Donut this week: chocolate icing, topped with indulgent brownie bits, and then drizzled with vanilla.
Yes, I did eat all of these after taking the photo.
Since our first week offering strawberry icing, we’ve had people come in and request it every week. So we decided to indulge again.
It’s hard to go wrong pairing up any other toppings with strawberry. This week, we went with a rich chocolate drizzle, and then crumbled graham cracker over the top of it. It’s sweet without being too sweet, and fruity balanced with rich chocolate and the familiar taste of graham cracker. So delicious!
We now have digital gift cards available! You can purchase the gift card online, and stop by the store to redeem it (just show us the code on your phone). It’s pretty simple.
We’re also working on physical gift cards. We hope to have them available in the shop starting in October.
A cool feature of the digital gift cards, is that you can future date them. Maybe you want to send your friend a gift card for their birthday next Thursday. No problem, just set it to “Send on a future date.”
There are also multiple images to choose from. (Looking for a different type of image? Just let us know, we’ll try to add it).

The county fair is in town this week, so we’re doing a pink cotton candy donut with white sprinkles.
If you’re visiting Concord this week, or find yourself anywhere near downtown Concord (near can mean within 50 miles in this context), stop by Downtown Donuts. We’re 2 doors down from the library on Union St.
With the weather cooling down, it makes us think of visiting the mountains of western North Carolina. We always go apple picking at least once. And one of the treats (if you can brave the line) is warm Apple Cider Donuts.
We’re bringing that tradition to the shop tomorrow, Sunday 8/3 for just 2 hours we’ll be making warm and delicious Apple Cider Donuts. We coat them in cinnamon sugar, and we’re only selling them by the ½ dozen and dozen.
