It first appeared in the spring of 2015, and now, by popular demand, Thorntons has brought back the Bourbon Ball Donut just in time for Derby season.
The Bourbon Ball Donut is a rich, bourbon-cream-filled donut covered in bourbon-flavored chocolate icing and topped with a pecan.
Thorntons said it collaborated with chef Matt Jamie of Bourbon Barrel Foods “to translate the decadence and excitement of the Kentucky Derby into a single, tangible, delicious pastry.”
Bourbon Ball Donuts are available for 99 cents each and will be available until the end of May at all Thorntons’ Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky, locations as well as all Southern Indiana locations.
The chain is also making a limited number available at the Taste of Louisville on April 26 and at the Thorntons Derby Festival Great Bed Races tailgate party on May 2 during the Kentucky Derby Festival.
