The Donut Whole at 1720 E. Douglas is known for its colorful and crazy donuts, from maple bacon to fruity-pebble covered. Earlier this week, owners Michael Carmody and Angela Mallory added a new dimension to the 5-year-old business: ice cream.

Customers now can get the Donut Whole’s donuts topped or sandwiched with chocolate or vanilla ice cream made by Paleteria La Reyna, the Mexican ice cream shop and restaurant at 2925 Arkansas. The shop is serving donuts a la mode, doughnut sundaes doughnut ice cream sandwiches and ice cream mix-in treats.

The Donut Whole also can serve shakes mixed with any flavor of milk tea, smoothie and coffee syrup flavors it has on hand, offering possibilities such as a Thai tea milkshake, a coffee milkshake, a maple spice milkshake and more. For more information, call 316-262-3700.
