Two of Massachusetts’s tastiest treat companies are teaming up this November.
Kane’s Donuts announced an official partnership with Taza Chocolate on Tuesday. Both the Saugus and downtown doughnut shops will be using Taza chocolate for all its doughnuts that include chocolate, as well as a limited-time Taza Chocolate flavor: cranberry pumpkin spice. The new flavor will be rolled out on October 28, National Chocolate Day.
“We pride ourselves in cooking local, supporting local and using local,” Paul Delios, co-owner and president of Kane’s Donuts, said in a statement. “We ramped up our efforts to support local businesses by co-creating donut collaborations using their products as the main ingredients in our high-quality artisanal donuts made fresh everyday in-house, and we’re happy to continue the tradition with Taza’s stone ground chocolate.”
Somerville’s Taza has been making authentic Mexican-style stone ground chocolate since it was founded by CEO Alex Whitmore in 2005. It has since become a well-known brand in the Boston area and expanded into the Boston Public Market.
Chocolate won’t be the only ingredient on Kane’s specialty flavors menu this November. Other monthly specials include a carrot cake doughnut with cream cheese glaze and walnuts, and a cranberry and orange fritter with honey glaze and orange icing.
