Summer Donuts at Glazed & Infused

If you’ve got a sweet tooth, Glazed & Infused recently rolled out a new batch of summer donuts at all of its locations, and they’re some of the most unique and inspired flavors to date. The Strawberry Kiwi Old Fashioned is a spice cake donut glazed with strawberry jam and a kiwi drizzle, while the Blackberry Cheesecake Bismarck is a donut stuffed with vanilla cheesecake and frosted with a housemade blackberry jam glaze. Then there’s the Pilsen, a donut inspired by the near southwest side neighborhood, made with a mango and pineapple glaze and a dusting of spicy tajin and lime.
