Indiana Donut Trail

January 28, 2021

What are some foods Indiana is known for?

Indiana is a humble little state, but don’t let that fool you: many iconic dishes hail from The Hoosier State! Perhaps most notable is pork tenderloin. This beloved sandwich consists of a thinly pounded layer of pork, breaded, and fried. And don’t be fooled: it’s not a true tenderloin if it’s not at least double the size of the bun and hand-battered. Sugar cream pie is another fave; this pie has a custard-like texture with a sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg on top. This beloved Indiana classic pie is simple, yet delicious. And finally, while Indiana is a proudly Midwestern state, we have a southern streak, too — you’ll find some of the best sweet corn, fried chicken, and biscuits and gravy right here.

Where can I find the best donuts in Indiana?

Don’t make us choose! In addition to the delightful donuts on our Indiana Donut Trail, here are 16 of the tastiest donut shops in Indiana. All delicious, all worth a visit. But, if we had to choose the most known and iconic donut shop in Indiana, it would have to be Indiana Square Donuts.This donut chain is Indiana’s claim to donut fame. These square-shaped delicacies will have your mouth watering instantly. Find them throughout the cities of Indianapolis, Carmel, Bloomington, Richmond, Terre Haute — and get a dozen (or two).
