Kentucky Derby fans and doughtnut fans alike can rejoice, as Thorntons Bourbon Ball Donut is back just in time for Derby season!
Thorntons’ Bourbon Ball Donut first debuted in Spring 2015, and it is back by popular demand so everyone can enjoy this delicious Kentucky tradition.
Thorntons collaborated with Chef Matt Jamie of Bourbon Barrel Foods to translate the decadence and excitement of the Kentucky Derby into a single, tangible, delicious pastry. The Bourbon Ball Donut is a rich, smooth bourbon cream-filled donut covered in bourbon-flavored chocolate icing, topped with a pecan. It perfectly captures the spirit of Kentucky’s favorite time of the year.
Each Bourbon Ball Donut costs only 99 cents, and is available now through the end of May at all of Thorntons’ Louisville, Southern Indiana and Lexington, Ky. locations.
A limited number will also be available at the Taste of Louisville on Tues., April 26 and at the Thorntons Derby Festival Great Bed Races tailgate party on Mon., May 2, during the Kentucky Derby Festival.
Doughnuts are always made fresh daily at Thorntons’ local bakery. This trifecta of flavor, freshness and convenience makes the Bourbon Ball Donut the ideal treat to both fuel customers’ day, and help them celebrate Derby.
