Wednesday morning may have been a gloomy, rainy start to the day. But the day got brighter when I tried out Fort Collins new donut shop!

Say hello to Peace, Love, and Little Donuts, located at 632 South College Avenue in Fort Collins. They opened up at their new location on Monday, May 8th and have already shown Northern Colorado that they definitely know how to make some kickass donuts!

I ended up getting two dozen donuts to bring into the office today, which I split up into one dozen of their "groovy" donuts and the other dozen consisted of a selection from their "funkadelic" lineup. What's the difference you ask?

Well their "groovy" donuts are your usual run of the mill donuts like cinnamon sugar, honey glazed, maple sugar, and more. However, I ended up taste testing a cinnamon sugar when I got in and fell in love with it instantly. I ended up getting one dozen of those.

The "funkadelic" donuts? Well these donuts are OUT OF THIS WORLD with creations that very imaginative. My dozen consisted of these "funkadelic" flavors:

  • Fruity Pebbles
  • The Elvis
  • Buttafinga'
  • Blueberry Pancake
  • Salted Caramel Macchiato
  • Cinnamon Bun

What definitely grabbed me to loving PLLD even more was how you know your donuts are completely fresh! How did I know that? Well you place your order, with ordering two donut flavors at a time. This is because they frost and top your donuts as you are standing there! You are reassured that your donut hasn't been sitting there for hours with the frosting exposed to the elements. As soon as your donut is frosted it is put in your donut box to take home or to work.

Plus, my donuts were SUPER FRESH enough that you could see the steam on the top of the donut box. They were warm all the way to the office for everyone to enjoy.

This picture above is of the "Elvis" donut, which of course is what you would expect from a donut with that name.

I highly recommend PLLD for your donut needs, and when you get that craving at any point during the day. They are open from 7AM - 7PM Monday - Thursday, 7AM - 10PM Friday and Saturday, and 8AM - 3PM on Sunday.

So if you need to fulfill a late night snack run on Friday or Saturday, PLLD is the place to go to!

On a scale of 1-5 donuts, PLLD gets a FULL FIVE DONUTS from me and I would give even more if I could. We've been waiting for a donut shop like this in Fort Collins, and it looks like we finally have one!
