Their door opening seemed to be heard around the Capital Region. Everyone was talking about the newest donut place in town, Cosmic Donuts.
Cosmic Donuts has been on my must-try list since they opened. I finally took the drive from Schenectady to Kinderhook to see what everyone was hyping.
Note: I was gifted these donuts to taste and post about on my Instagram but the opinion is my own.
If you’re expecting a huge storefront, you may drive by and miss it. Down a side street in the small village of Kinderhook is a pink sprinkled donut that leads your way to the most innovative flavors I’ve ever seen! I had my 9 donuts chosen for me but the flavors they had were incredible.
🍩PB Cookie Dough: a donut dipped in chocolate and topped with a ball of peanut butter cookie dough mixed with Reese’s Pieces
🍩 Samoa: a fluffy yeast-raised donut dipped in chocolate and toasted coconut, filled with whipped coconut creme and topped with a Samoa cookie and chocolate drizzle
🍩 Thin Mint: donut filled with mint buttercream, dipped in chocolate, chocolate mint cookie crumble, and topped with a mint cookie and chocolate drizzle
🍩 Mixed Berry: ring donut stuffed with vanilla creme, mixed berries, and graham cracker crumbs
🍩 Apple Pie Cheesecake: filled with a spiced cheesecake filling, apple filling, and dusted with powdered sugar
🍩 PB Cup Smoreo: a donut filled with fluff, dipped in chocolate, and topped with marshmallows, PB cups, and Oreos with a PB drizzle on top
🍩 Fluffernutter: a donut filled with fluff and topped with whipped peanut butter buttercream, more fluff, a nutter butter, and Pb drizzle
🍩 Tagalong: a donut filled with peanut butter buttercream, topped with a crumbled cookie, a chocolate peanut butter cookie, and a chocolate/Pb drizzle
🍩 Strawberry with sprinkles: classic donut with strawberry frosting and rainbow sprinkles
The flavors that they offer change pretty frequently so keep an eye on their Instagram to see what’s in the case. Also, it’s important to note that they’re known to sell out so either pre-order to make sure you get the flavors you want or get there earlier rather than later. They also offer coffees, teas, milkshakes, and more. There isn’t a ton of room for seating at the purple, blue, and pink storefront, but you’re in quick walking distance from a mini park with benches and tables galore.
The vibe is cool, the donuts delicious, if you’re looking for a quick day trip go visit Cosmic Donuts and take a walk around to see what Kinderhook has to offer!
