A long-time favourite of locals and students alike, Fisher & Donaldson’s fudge doughnut is finding fame much further afield.
The finger-licking sticky confection has been named on top USA news site BuzzFeed as one of the “18 British Doughnuts You Must Eat Before You Die”.
One of only two in Scotland, Fisher & Donaldson’s listing describes it as: “With an admirable loyal following, Fisher & Donaldson’s ‘famous’ fudge doughnut has garnered quite the cult following. It’s no wonder, just look at that thick fudge glaze and creamy custard filling.”
Ben Milne, the fifth generation in the Cupar-based family business, which also has branches in St Andrews, said: “It’s fantastic that we have been seen as one of the best in the UK.”
But he added that the BuzzFeed choice only underlined what local people had long known.
As Sarah McKinnon said on the company’s Facebook: “Still my favourite...nothing beats the fudge doughnut.”
