Astro Doughnuts May flavors: Chef Kajula

Astro Doughnuts and Fried Chicken has debuted inventive selections for the month of May 2019. Chef Chris Kajula has been busy creating new treats to offer at the Falls Church Astro Doughnuts and the food truck location. These include the Chocolate Raspberry Truffle, Cannoli, Strawberry Guava, and Root Beer Float.

Included below is a sneak peak at a fifth doughnut available next month only on National Doughnut Day, which falls on June 7. The special doughnut with red and white pearl sprinkles and toasted cake crumbs has a lot of history behind it. Astro will release additional details next month.

Here are the Astro Doughnut May flavors:

  • Chocolate Raspberry Truffle: Guests may be saying “take me away” after indulging in this selection. They’ll enjoy chocolate cake doughnut, tart red raspberry glaze, and dark chocolate sprinkles.
  • Cannoli: A tribute to the Italian favorite: A pillow doughnut is filled with Italian cannoli cream, made of sweetened ricotta, mini chocolate chips and chopped candied orange peel. Then it’s rolled in cinnamon sugar and topped with a dark chocolate drizzle.

The above doughnuts are a $3.60 investment for their sinful pleasure.

  • Strawberry Guava Smoothie may conjure up memories of that post-first-spin class treat: Strawberry guava glaze with a touch of honey, with yogurt and granola crumble
  • Root Beer Float may take you back to your childhoood: Root beer glaze, vanilla buttercream center, white chocolate pearls

For $3.50, these last two doughnuts are considered a bargain in some nostalgia-seeking circles.
