The Donut Box isn’t returning to the 2022 Epcot Food and Wine Festival. The following information is from 2021.
The Donut Box is the go-to spot for hot dogs. Just kidding, it’s a booth serving up sweet AND savory donut treats.
Admittedly, the sweeter donuts here don’t compare to similar donuts you might find at Joffrey’s and are instead just your typical donuts with some stuff thrown on top.
That being said, we did really like one food item – the Crispy Chicken on a Sriracha-Glazed Donut. We think it is the go-to item here for meat eaters.
You don’t want to miss it, along with the coffee cocktail and the strawberry smoothie (that is more like a slushy) that’s perfect for anyone who prefers their drinks without alcohol.
Here’s everything you need to know about The Donut Box booth, including reviews, photos, and our must-trys.
Location: Near Test Track and Cool Wash in Future World
Nearby booths: Flavors From Fire, Brew-Wing, Mac & Eats, Lobster Landing
Nearby seating areas: Epcot Experience (located inside with tables and A/C), several standing tables located outdoors by Donut Box
Not to miss: Crispy Chicken on a Sriracha-Glazed Donut (loved it!), Left Hand Brewing Bittersweet Imperial Coffee Milk Stout (super yummy), and the Strawberry Smoothie (good for anyone who prefers drinks without alcohol)

Photos & Reviews
Candy Jar Donut
A fried yeast donut topped with chocolate icing, M&M’s, SNICKERS, and TWIX pieces.
Special Diets: Kid friendly
Shannon: Nothing special about the flavor of the donut itself, but a fun combo of flavors. Generously sized too.
Heather: It’s not BAD, but – it is just a glazed donut with chocolate and candy on top. Not super unique, and probably something you can get at home.
Felicia: If you like chocolate and donuts, this is a great option. It’s very rich and sweet though so wouldn’t recommend if you don’t like very sweet things.
Allyson: This is simply your standard donut with some candy on top. I love the chocolate and candy, but it’s just ok.

Special Diets: N/A
Shannon: Same donut is served with the Crispy Chicken and works better in that format. Alone, this feels like a strange combo of flavors.
Heather: Tastes like something is missing…LIKE THE CHICKEN. Definitely better as a sandwich.
Felicia: This is only edible as part of the chicken sandwich, but wouldn’t recommend it either way.
Allyson: I don’t know why this is a donut. Spicy and sweet don’t mix at all.
Chef’s Donut of the Day
A rotating daily donut selection. We sampled the Black Forest Donut and Lemon-Blueberry Donut.
Special Diets: N/A
Shannon: Beautiful presentation, good flavors, fun to have options that change between visits.
Heather: Fun donut option. I’d write a review but I feel like since the Chef’s Choice can change it would be a waste…BUT, I also feel like only the yummiest of donuts would be “Chef’s Choice”, so if in doubt DO IT!
Felicia: The Lemon Blueberry tasted like dish soap. The Black Forest was delicious. Chocolate was rich and cherries were tart, but would be hard to eat it all on its own.
Allyson: Lemon – I love lemon, but I wanted more of a lemon flavor. There’s only a hint of blueberry. Black Forest – Ok chocolate flavor, but the cherries were a nice addition — and I don’t like cherries.
Crispy Chicken Donut
A crispy fried chicken breast served on a Sriracha glazed donut with slaw.
Special Diets: N/A
Shannon: Yummm! Chicken is so tender and light. Donut adds a sweetness that is so delicious.
Heather: Whelp. I wanted to hate it…but I really liked it. The spicy and sweet donut paired with a very crunchy piece of chicken – DELIGHTFUL. Also – not TOO spicy, which is great because I am a spicy weenie.
Felicia: The chicken is good but the donut has a fake orange flavor that is off putting. Didn’t love it.
A classic strawberry smoothie (made without alcohol).
Made with Alcohol?: No
Shannon: More slushy than a typical creamy smoothie. Fantastic flavor. Love this as a non-alcoholic drink option.
Heather: Incredibly sweet, so you’ve been warned. But – it’s a great option for anyone looking for a tasty beverage without alcohol.
Felicia: Solid refreshing beverage. It’s light and fruity and nice on a hot day.
Allyson: This is a very good strawberry smoothie. Super refreshing and a good non-alcoholic option.
Bittersweet Imperial Coffee Milk Stout
A rich and dark imperial stout beer made with Indonesian and Ethiopian coffee beans, brewed by Left Hand Brewing Co. in Longmont, CO.
Made with Alcohol?: Yes
Shannon: Stout lovers will enjoy this. Coffee flavor comes through nicely.
Heather: Hints of coffee and a deep, rich flavor. You don’t have to chew it but you WILL taste it.
Felicia: Delicious and creamy stout. It’s easy to drink, slight coffee flavor, and not too heavy. Would recommend for anyone that enjoys stouts.
Allyson: I’m not a stout fan, but this has great coffee flavor and super tasty. It’s a bit heavy.
Black and White Coffee Cocktail
A cocktail made with whiskey and vanilla liqueur then mixed with iced coffee.
Made with Alcohol?: Yes
Shannon: Great flavors but better to enjoy the milky drink inside rather than walking around in the Florida heat.
Heather: Start your morning off with a KICK with this little beauty. Coffee flavors. Maybe chocolate? I liked it!
Felicia: Good but strong and more creamy than I appreciate. Also, a little heavy for the heat but maybe better enjoyed inside.
Allyson: This is a fantastic coffee cocktail. I love coffee and this is something I could drink an entire glass of.
