Hero Donuts—Sugar And Spice Donuts, Pumpkin Spice Frozen Custard and Fronuts

Nothing says fall like a donut—especially one made with sugar and spice (it’s just so nice!).

Hero Donuts is making this classic flavor from scratch this fall and they are oh-so satisfying! You can get it as a donut or in mini—the perfect pop-in-your-mouth size.

But that’s not the only fall treat this beloved shop is offering. Since it’s still way too hot in Bama right now, they are also offering a refreshing fall-inspired goodie—soft-serve pumpkin spice frozen custard. Get it in a cup or opt for something even cooler—a fronut. This unique item is a sugar and spice donut topped with pumpkin spice frozen custard.
