Thanks for the Love Food Network

Mojo Monkey was chosen as Minnesota's best for Food Network's 50 States of Donuts
Let us preface this blog post by saying, we aren't in the donut industry to collect accolades or recognition.  We ARE in the donut industry to try new things, mix unique flavors and create those smiles on the kids' (and adults') faces when they bite into something delicious.

That being said, we aren't afraid to brag a little bit when we are recognized for our hard work.  (We know, it's not like us as Minnesotans to brag).  

Recently, it was brought to our attention that a little outfit out of New York City, called the Food Network, which also has some offices in Atlanta, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Detroit, Jersey City, Cincinnati, and Knoxville, Tennessee had named us to their best donuts (they spell it doughnuts) in America list.  

This was humbling recognition and made us blush a little bit.  As just a little shop on West 7th, we aren't accustomed to national recognition.

If you don't have time to click through and find us, we'll save you a little time with their write up here:
"Mango-Glazed Doughnut at Mojo Monkey Donuts: Minnesota
The exotic flavors of this mango-glazed doughnut are one example of Owner Lisa Clark’s mission to make amazing raised doughnuts (assisted by her pastry-enthused children). Mojo Monkey Donuts’ signature yeast dough (crafted with locally brewed beer, yams and parsnips) is made into a ring, then topped with organic mango glaze and unsweetened coconut for a tropically inspired treat."


If you do want to page through the list we're page 32 and surrounded by some pretty incredible looking donut shops from across the country.

Thanks for allowing us to brag a little bit.  And thanks for your support of Mojo Monkey Donuts.

“The belle of the ball is Mojo Monkey Donuts, St. Paul’s newest shop. It has everything you’d ever want in a donut shop: crullers as light as air, double-chocolate donuts as intensely chocolaty as devil’s food cake, mocha-crème filled donuts full of lush custard and true mocha depth.”
