1. Peace, Love and Little Donuts (Fort Collins)
Could your life use a little more peace and love... and donuts? The answer to all of the above is a definite yes, so check out Northern Colorado's downright groovy Peace, Love and Little Donuts! Originally founded in Pennsylvania, the small chain (thankfully) expanded to Ohio and Colorado and features such flavors as apple pie, Fruity Pebbles, and Orange Dream.
2. Voodoo Donuts (Denver)
Often regarded as the best donut in the Denver area, Voodoo Donut is home to some of the most innovative and downright tasty fried pastries in the state, such as a Bacon Maple Bar, cereal-infused Oh Captain, My Captain, and the namesake Voodoo Doll.
3. Horseshoe Donuts (Monument)
When they say that they "serve the best donuts (that) Colorado Springs has to offer," they aren't kidding! How do they do it? It is by combining the "savory tastes of New England and the western philosophy of Colorado" in an effort to bring something brand-new to the Centennial State. Yum!
4. Donut Mill (Woodland Park)
Do you have a huge appetite and require an equally huge pastry? Then you have come to the right place! Located in charming Woodland Park, the Donut Mill is known far and wide for its homemade donuts that are not only delicious but gigantic!
5. Daylight Donuts (Breckenridge)
What is a donut road trip without stopping at Daylight Donuts? Also offering hot breakfast items, Daylight Donuts has everything from cake to raised donuts, plus twists, cream-filled long johns, apple fritters, and bear claws.
6. Powder Day Donuts (Steamboat Springs)
You know Steamboat Springs for having some of the best powder (AKA snow) in the state, but did you know that they can whip up a mean powdered donut, too? It's true, thanks to Powder Day Donuts, which makes their made-from-scratch pastries every morning.
