No one can deny the power of a Judicke’s doughnut and they are just small enough that you can (maybe) have more than one without really feeling guilty. A sweet combo of fried goodness and chocolate frosting, Judicke’s features season-appropriate sprinkles for all holidays (so your doughnuts are always festive) so go pick up a dozen and thank us later.
