Holey Grail Donuts – a taro donut shop originating from Hawaii and known for its “Breaking Bread” collaborations with notable figures like Tony Hawk, Master P, Karreuche Tran and more — has introduced the first-ever taro-based donut holes in the world.

Made-to-order in organic coconut oil and 100 percent gluten-free, the new “Holeys” are served in Holey Grail’s signature Original Sin flavor, with Hawaiian vanilla bean, maple and sea salt, and a weekly rotating special flavor at all shops (Honolulu, Larchmont, Santa Monica and the newest Long Beach, opening June 1). 

For launch day on Thursday, May 23, Holey Grail Donuts donated a portion of proceeds from Holeys to the Waipa Foundation, in support of sustainable agriculture and taro cultivation in Hawaii. Additionally, on National Donut Day (June 7), Holey Grail Donuts will host a “Make Any Donut Holey” special, where they will offer a free Holey to anyone who purchases a donut.

More than a year in the making, the new Holeys were developed by Holey Grail co-founders and brother-sister team Nile and Hana Dreiling. They created a new dough with taro (the signature ingredient in their donuts) and rice flour, and is entirely gluten free, with a perfectly crisp exterior, and warm, slightly chewy interior. 

This new menu innovation marks the first time Holey Grail is introducing a new food item to their menu, which comes on the heels of a new line of in-house “Tropical Fizz” beverages recently launched. The Hawaiian-inspired, housemade, non-caffeinated carbonated sodas are available in four flavors including Big Island Ube, Real Pineapple Passionfruit, Hawaii Vanilla and Matcha Colada, which are all topped with their signature cold coconut cream cloud foam.
