Dun-Well Vegan Doughnuts Launch!

Dun-Well Doughnuts is a new wholesale vegan doughnut company. Join us for their official launch party! And joining them for the evening will be none other than NYC's favorite vegan ice cream joint, Lula's Sweet Apothecary, with free samples of a very special, made-for-doughnuts, ice cream flavor.

Also in attendance will be a beautiful new gem for Brooklynites, and all New Yorkers alike, Pine Box Rock Shop, an all vegan bar, featuring a vegan "Bailey's Cream." Pine Box also features vegan empanadas and bar snacks, along with fish-friendly drinks. And they'll be providing special, made-for-doughnuts, cocktails!

    A 5-star event! Sure, it was crowded... but who wouldn't _want_ there to be such a huge demand for vegan products! Delighted to see the huge turnout! I did not wait on the long food lines, but it was great just hanging out with fellow vegans and vegetarians. Big congrats to Doug for making this fantastic 5-star blow-out evening a Vegan EatUP event, and huge thanks to Demetrius for your visionary leadership of the group!

    I was really excited about this event but the distribution of donuts didn't really work so I ended up leaving after being in line for 30 min and not getting any closer to the donuts. :-( I heard others complaining and saw lots of people walking out. Might have been better if the donuts and other treats were passed around.

    Very disappointing; it's not that it was crowded, because I expected it to be mobbed. Rather, I spoke to the owner and asked him what kind of oil he used in the donuts; he said palm and canola. He might as well have said rape and crankcase, because 1) oil palm plantations are the number one cause of orangutan species decimation. http://planetgreen.discovery.com/travel-outdoors/orangutans-extinct-action.html?campaign=daylife-article (I refuse to buy Liz Lovely cookies for this reason, not just because they're expensive.) 2) Canola oil ias a vriant of rapeseed oil, which is toxic (ansd an excellent insect repellent.)

    I thought the idea of vegan food was for it to be healthier to both our bodies and to the planet? By that definition, neither of these oils are vegan; I might as well go back to eating Dunkin' Donuts.

    It worked out, but was crowded. 40+ minutes in line for 1/2 a donut.
    Good donuts & ice cream though.

    the donuts were awesome, the ice cream was great--but what flavor was it? the only disappointments were that there was no vegan bailey's irish cream and that navigating the space was somewhat like being in times square on a saturday (i would imagine). but that's no one's fault. actually, i give credit--another group of people might have trampled each other or ended up fighting, but we all managed to make it work ;-)

    The place was mobbed! Glad for them but made for a bumpy tasting experience. By 7:40 the servers didn't feel like serving....okay You sure want to be in the food business? The donuts were intriguing looking. Looked more like pastries. Not a bad taste but not light enough to qualify as a true donut. I am sure with practice they will get it down but for the moment my allegiance still lies with the Hare Krsna donut shop the Donut Plant that provides a wide variety of scrumptious donuts at about $2.00 a piece that are eggless. The ice cream was good- what I could get of it which was about a teaspoon. Sigh....nothing like people cutting in line. In my mind , this was a private launch for the Vegan MeetUp specifically and that it would be more orderly with each vendor speaking about their products and mission. Not the case and that's a shame. Good concept but poor execution. Scooping out cups of ice cream in advance would have made for good flow in traffic and less confusion.
