All set? Let's get going!
1. Sunny's Donuts - Gaffney
You'll score a variety of sweet treasures from your visit to Sunny's Donuts. Sunny's has been voted Best Donuts in South Carolina and it's not hard to figure out why. The donuts here are delicious, huge, and affordable. Get there early, though, because they often sell out. Sunny's is located at 720 S Granard St, Gaffney, SC 29341.
2. Chickenbutt Donuts - Chapin
Ok. Hands down, this is easily one of the most generously topped maple bacon donuts in the state.
And good luck making it very far with your full box of Chickenbutt Donuts remaining unscathed. Maybe two boxes are in order from this donut shop? You can decide when you get there! Find 'em at 2130B Dutch Fork Rd, Chapin, SC 29036.
3. Duck Donuts - Columbia
One of the things that makes Duck Donuts so special is their donuts can be made to order, right on the spot, and the process begins when you place your order. Don't see something you like in the cabinets? Start with choosing your coating (bare, cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar, or glazed), or choose from seven different icings. Then pick your topping (chocolate or rainbow sprinkles, graham cracker, chopped peanuts, shredded coconut, chopped bacon, and Oreos). And finally, choose a drizzle (hot fudge, raspberry, salted caramel, or marshmallow). Still another option is to pick up bare donuts and a Lucky Duck Decorating Kit and bring 'em home and have fun decorating them yourself. Duck Donuts in Columbia is located in the Cross Hill Market at 702 Cross Hill Rd 100 B, Columbia, SC 29205.
4. Murrays' Donuts - Sumter
You'll want to hit this sweet spot early in the day before it sells out. The donuts are always fresh as can be, delicious, and very affordable at Murray's. They're some of the best in the entire state. Find Murray's at 627 Bultman Dr, Sumter, SC 29150.
5. Glazed Gourmet Doughnuts - Charleston
You'll definitely advance your donut game with a visit to Glazed Gourmet Doughnuts. This may be the only shop in South Carolina where you'll find a key lime donut! Other delicious donut offerings include berry cobbler, strawberry stuffed French toast, biscoff cheesecake, almond biscotti, chocolate chip cookie, and what seems like a hundred
. Find this tasty spot at 481 King St, Charleston, SC 29403.
6. Alljoy Donut Co - Bluffton
You can bet they're always delicious and almost alway sell out. It's easy to see (and taste) why! To local Blufftonites, Alljoy just may be the Holy Grail of donut shops. Find it on Heyward St, Bluffton, SC 29910.
7. Duck Donuts - Hilton Head
Duck Donuts' made-to-order approach is a big part of the allure of the fastest growing donut franchise in America. So much so, that Duck Donuts has two spots on our donut trail!
