Just cashed in my first Groupon for a dozen "mix & match" doughnuts! The whole process from buying to using was easy breezy. The Groupon was good for a dozen Frost Doughnuts located in Mill Creek, Wa. A dozen donuts normally costs $24 but with Groupon it cost $8. Frost Doughnuts are so expensive that without the special I probably wouldn't have driven out of my way for these small sophisticated indulgences, but boy would we have missed out! Gourmet treats such as Maple-Bacon bars and Chocolate-Cayenne are just a few of Frost Doughnut's culinary creations. You were allowed to buy one Groupon for yourself and an additional three as gifts, but as far as I can tell there's no way for Frost Doughnuts to know who is using what. In the end, I don't think they care too much. Groupon has provided a lot of exposure for this three-friend business adventure turned upscale bakery.
