redrabbitIn a cool twist of food fate, Wheatsville Food Co-op has purchased the equipment and recipe to make Red Rabbit’s beloved vegan doughnuts.

Red Rabbit was a cooperatively owned bakery, known for its doughnuts, that shuttered in August. Austinites were understandably upset, and Wheatsville, which was one of the primary retail outlets for Red Rabbit doughnuts, saw an opportunity.

The grocer bought the bakery’s equipment, leftover ingredients and recipes, and it also hired former Red Rabbit bakers to help get things up and running.

Four varieties of the doughnuts (glazed, chocolate iced, maple pecan and apple fritter), as well as in bit-sized doughnut holes, will be for sale starting this Saturday at both Wheatsville locations.
