Astro offers doughnuts inspired by ‘Stranger Things’

Upside-Down, Demogorgon among special treats available in October; Astro returns mini doughnuts box

Astro Doughnuts and Fried Chicken will go strange in October—Stranger Things, that is—inspired by the widely-viewed TV Show. The show’s four seasons of popularity have inspired Chris Kujala, pastry chef, to create these new flavors.

Customers will order these in limited qualities. Astro Doughnuts’ G Street and Falls Church stores will serve as the pickup locations. Customers must order ahead to indulge in these inspired creations:

  • “Upside-Down” Doughnut – Chocolate cake doughnut features a gray cinnamon-honey glaze, Oreo cookie crumbles and black sugar, served upside-down
  • “Breakfast for Eleven”Doughnut – A yeasted circle doughnut topped with a maple glaze, chopped bacon, and a mini Eggo waffle
  • “Holly Jolly” Doughnut – A yeasted circle doughnut topped with a vanilla glaze and decorated with chocolate string icing and mini M&Ms to resemble Joyce Byers’ Christmas light communication with her son stuck in the Upside-Down during Stranger Things Season One
  • Demogorgon Doughnut – A yeasted square doughnut filled with raspberry jam and topped with a red apple cider glaze, white nonpareils, chocolate buttercream and a Demogorgon made from fresh strawberries.

Guests should order with 24 hours’ advance notice for pickup beginning Monday, October 3 through the end of the month.

In addition, Astro will offer its popular Halloween-themed box of mini doughnuts later this month, priced at $30. Each box comprises twelve decorated mini doughnuts in a variety of flavors, including Pumpkin Pie, Honey Bun, Candy Apple & Glazed. Orders for the boxes of mini donuts will be fulfilled Monday, October 24 through Monday, October 31.
