UPDATED: University City Federal Donuts Countdown Is On

homer-simpson-federal-donuts-university-cityThe Federal Donuts coming to 3428 Sansom Street is opening shortly. How shortly? According to a tweet from Federal Donuts yesterday, “in fewer days than you can count on two Simpsons hands.” Which if our arithmetic is correct, means the new Federal Donuts will open within eight days, seven as of today. Unless thumbs don’t count, then it’s five.

Counting on Simpson fingers is tougher than it seems.

UPDATE: Just got word that FedNuts West will be opening the doors at 7am on Monday, March 10–which, true to their promise, is a number of days that can be counted on two Simpsons hands.




The partners are promising baharat-spiced cake donuts, two brand new fancies (Marshmallow Marshmallow and Chocolate Covered Strawberry), two new sugar-dusted cake donuts (Chocolate Peanut Butter and Orange Dream), and a whole lot of new fried chicken:  Furikake (toasted sesame seeds, bonito flake, nori), Moussa (parsley, onion, saffron, coriander, cumin, sumac) and Buffalo Ranch seasonings are now in play, as well as new glazes like Pad Thai (lime, roasted chili, crushed peanuts) and Sweet Soy Garlic (sweet soy, roasted garlic and sherry).

The shop opens with donuts and coffee at 7am. Chicken goes up for sale at 11am. And they'll stay open until 7pm or until everything sells out.
