Mixed Message Food Mash-up Of The Year! Donuts made with tofu! In the interest of science, I felt it was imperative I step up to answer the burning question: does the healthy tofu part cancel out the evil donut part?

Tofu donuts come in five flavors: plain, cinnamon, chocolate with sprinkles, strawberry glazed and red bean.

And the verdict? I have to admit, I couldn’t muster up even the smallest bloom of smugness from eating the cinnamon tofu bomb. I’m sorry to report that even though it was made from the most healthy of health food, that donut was delicious. Tasted like a regular cinnamon cake donut.

Which meant, of course, that the forces of evil sugar and deep frying were probably triumphing over the valiant efforts of the tofu, and I couldn’t eat six of them and call it dinner.
