Fractured Prune Coming to Dupont in August

No that's not a third grader's model of Earth pictured at right. It's the Blueberry Hill doughnut from Fractured Prune, the Ocean City, Md.-based doughnut shop, which Friday's Washington Business Journal reports is expected to open in Dupont at 2153-2155 P St. NW in August.

Metrocurean caught wind of the unappetizingly named shop's plans to enter the D.C. doughnut market from this DCist post, which digs up the story behind the moniker.

The store distinguishes itself from the Krispy competition with its made-to-order, custom doughnuts. Choose your glaze (like honey, banana, chocolate, maple, cherry and mocha), some toppings (rainbow sprinkles, coconut and Oreo cookie, to name a few) and, as if you didn't already have enough sweetness, your sugar, including powdered, granulated and cinnamon.

Check out some of the specialty choices here. Would you think me a bore if I confess I'd go for plain Jane? That blueberry one kind of scares me.
