Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken is channeling some of Willy Wonka’s energy to celebrate the opening of their new Santa Monica, CA location by awarding a select few a golden-filled Moon Pie Doughnut. For those lucky ones that bite into their doughnut to reveal its golden deliciousness, they become winners of a year’s worth of free doughnuts from Astro.

The Golden Doughnut will be filled with edible gold filling and mixed in every hour with free Moon Pie Doughnuts that are being given out during the Santa Monica location’s opening day on March 28, 2019. So if you’re in it for the proverbial golden ticket, make your way on over there for a chance to make Homer Simpson very jealous of you.

The Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken Santa Monica, CA location will be open on Thursday March 28 at 7:30pm.

CBD-Infused Doughnuts Now Located In Los Angeles, Here’s Where To Find Them

Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken, known for their mastery of both delectable choices, are capitalizing on the legalization of marijuana for recreational use in California by creating a new iteration that’s infused with CBD.

For those unfamiliar, CBD (short for Cannabidiol) is a natural compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis and is known for its therapeutic properties. CBD-based products and foods are currently booming, so Astro threw their hat into the craze and just created CBD-infused doughnuts that continue their penchant for exquisite treats.

The doughnut, which in specific is a Chocolate Birthday Cake Doughnut with CBD-Infused Chocolate Buttercream Frosting, is a welcome treat to Angelenos looking to take their already notoriously chill Cali vibe to deeper levels of relaxation. And at 60mg of CBD in each doughnut, eating one whole will have you feeling like you’re wrapped in a veritable Snuggie of chill mode. Trust me, I was the happy guinea pig to try.

These CBD chocolate doughnuts are going for $5 a pop and are currently available at the Downtown Los Angeles location of Astro, with availability soon at the forthcoming Santa Monica location opening at the end of March. Happy chilling and munching, L.A.
