This fruit donut is a Granny Smith apple that has been dipped in gourmet chocolate. The donuts are then covered in a variety of toppings. Toppings include “sweet sprinkles, caramelized hazelnut crunch, delicious coconut shavings and almonds.” While the donut sounds similar to the classic treat, it is quite different.

According to Tariq Farid, founder and CEO of Edible®. “Crafting a donut-shaped, chocolate-dipped apple treat is our unique twist on a nostalgic indulgence that our guests can enjoy without total sweet treat guilt.” In today’s health conscious eating world, guilt free treats are a popular choice. But, will a fruit donut satisfy that donut craving?
