The donut, like the circle from which it takes its shape, is a metaphor for life; it literally never ends. Enjoy eternally enticing eats with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get one dozen organic donuts and one dozen glazed donut dots (a $24.49 value) at Mandarin Gourmet Donut Shoppe, located inside Carmelina's Pastries in Cutler Bay.
Featured on Waterfront News and WSVN, Mandarin Gourmet Donut Shoppe is known for its organic, tasty donuts, which are fried in trans-fat-free oil until light and fluffy. Today's deal lets patrons sample Mandarin's gourmet goods with a variety box of 12 donuts, six filled and six unfilled. Treat injectables include caramelized apple pie, guava and cheese, and marshmallow crème custard. Filling-free flavors are equally decadent but less offensive to texture monogamists, and include raspberry glaze, white chocolate, and dark chocolate espresso drizzle. You'll also get 12 donut dots, which come donned in scandalously sheer gowns of glaze and no socks. Delivery is available within metropolitan Miami-Dade County.
