Seasonal Donuts Available January 1 with the Unveiling of The Godmother Donut


PRESS RELEASE January 4, 2021 Boston, MA – Kane’s Donuts is pleased to announce a limited-edition seasonal donut with Lord Hobo Brewing Company to bring customers The Godmother Donut. This scrumptious donut is in stores beginning January 1 and available through the month at all Kane’s Donuts locations: 120 Lincoln Avenue in Saugus, 1575 Broadway (Essex Landing) in Saugus, and 90 Oliver Street in Boston’s Financial District.

Tapping into Lord Hobo’s Godmother Imperial Stout, Kane’s has crafted yet another seasonal delight.  A collaboration with the Woburn brewery, this yeast donut features the Kane’s Sticky Bun glaze mixed with a rich reduction of Lord Hobo’s Godmother Imperial Stout and sprinkle of lightly sweetened toasted granola. With the stout’s hints of burnt brown sugar, caramel, molasses, and toasted oats, customers will get bittersweet, fairy-like goodness in every bite.



“Our loyal customers love when we work together with Massachusetts brewers to celebrate the flavors of the season,” said Kane’s Donuts Co-Owner Paul Delios. “The Godmother Imperial Stout worked perfectly for this January special – it’s a local taste that we hope our customers enjoy!”

Godmother Imperial Stout is a cherished companion to long dark nights indoors and will help stave off the encroaching cold of winter. At first sip, big roasty and chewy malts balance coffee and chocolate flavors with a pleasant balance of bitterness on the end. A subtle smooth sweetness suffuses throughout, making for a very drinkable Imperial Stout.

“Lord Hobo and Kane’s share the same dedication to our respective crafts and the same commitment to working with and supporting local and regional businesses,” said Lord Hobo Marketing Director, Aubree Karls. “Kane’s using our Godmother Imperial Stout is sure to make for some tasty treats for Bostonians this January.”



For the month of January, Kane’s will also feature a Marble Cruller, Raised Jelly Stick, and Sugar Raised Donut. Additionally, Kane’s has grown their gluten free line in time for the New Year with their Kane’s Gluten Free Muffins. This new addition to their gluten free menu is available in the following flavors: KGF Apple Cinnamon, KGF Banana Pecan, KGF Corn, KGF Blueberry, KGF Cranberry Orange Walnut, and KGF Double Chocolate.

About Kane’s Donuts

Kane’s Donuts is New England’s legacy donut shop, ranked top-10 in the United States for serving handcrafted donuts and treats that are made fresh daily, and with local ingredients. Known for a superior daily selection of artisanal flavors and rotating monthly favorites, its continuous 64 years of service began with Kanes’ now-iconic “Legacy” store, which opened in 1955 in Saugus, Mass., and remains a local favorite for serving handmade products, seven days a week. For its 60th anniversary in March 2015, Kane’s opened a second location (“Kane’s Downtown”) in the heart of Boston’s financial district at International Place; and in March 2019, Kane’s reimagined the donut-buying experience with “Kane’s Flagship,” its largest location (with a drive-through and donut-prep observation area) at Essex Landing in Saugus. In 2018, Kane’s was named “Best Donut” by both Boston Magazine and the Improper Bostonian, and in 2019 won “Best of the North Shore” by North Shore magazine. It has appeared in Travel + Leisure, Saveur and Yankee magazines, among others; it’s consistently recognized by the Boston Globe, Boston Herald and local media; and has earned local and national attention for what many consider the best gluten-free cake donuts available at a traditional donut shop.
