Proving that a co-op need not actually "be partially owned by multiple vendors", or "sell stupid vegetables that aren't as good as donuts": The Donut Cooperative, a new SoMi stop from a duo whose quest started a year ago when they couldn't find a decent 'nut in all of Mpls. $12k-worth of Kickstarter campaigning later, they've now got their own small shop (outfitted with golden bunny wallpaper and sweet skylights) ready to churn out coffee from local roasters, and yeast-raised circles of heaven like:
Goat Cheese Lavender Citrus Mousse: Two bun-like powdered sugar-covered joints encase a generous dollop of lavender citrus mousse, so what sounds like it should add volume to your hair will actually just add volume to your you.
Chili Dog: The idea of a campaign contributor, this one's injected with a chili bean filling, also used in that Moneyball character's cheesiest pickup line.
Eggnog: This seasonal sucker features eggnog filling sandwiched by two donuts that've been maple-drizzled, aka what Snoop Dog would do if he were a tree of the genus acer pseudoplatanus.
Orange Creamcicle: Basically a sugar donut, this guy's set off by its orange creamcicle icing, also the rule you're annoyed by most when watching The National Popsicle Hockey League.
Carrot Cake w/Cream Cheese Icing: ...carrot cake w/ cream cheese icing, duh.
They've also got a slew of vegan cake rings, and of course, the standard stuff like chocolate, sugar, and glazed, which, by the way, will rightfully describe your expression the next time someone tells that vegetable co-ops are awesome.
