According to the @DoughnutBarnMT Instagram page, a new truck serving "homemade mini-doughnuts made with local ingredients" will hit the streets of Billings this Spring.
The Doughnut Barn will begin excepting orders for their Montana Made delectables on May 1 and will have a menu of mini-doughnuts in 12 featured flavors including Reese’s Pieces, Blueberry Pancake, Cinnamon Sugar, Huckleberry Jam, and Oreo Crumble.
