LOS ANGELES — Consider the simple but beloved chocolate chip cookie. Now imagine that cookie encrusting a brioche roll tucked around a turkey meatball.
Arizona will welcome the next doughnut revolution – Fractured Prune Doughnuts, which has a cult following for offering consumers always hot doughnuts, hand-dipped and topped to order. The first of many stores expected in Arizona will open in Chandler at 6 a.m. on Tuesday, April 29.
