Tried the Surrey donut for the price and it was better than Krispy Kreme – Laura Nightingale
Sassys Sugar Donuts was born out of the Covid-19 pandemic, and I’ve only just discovered the local gem. The Frimley-based company specializes in the most spectacular donuts – and best of all, they taste divine.
I know because I tasted them this week. Surrey founder and mum Sarah Johnson has taken her donut trailer to local fairs and markets across the county, and her sweet pastries have been the subject of a storm. From Surrey Market in Camberley town center to the Mytchett Football Tournament over the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend, people lined up to sample the mouth-watering snacks.
Sarah makes traditional sugar donuts (you know the ones you can’t resist at a carnival) and they smell out of this world. Soft, light and ultra chewy, they instantly reminded me of my childhood when I bit into one, and they tasted better than my usual go-to at Krispy Kreme (fun fact – Krispy Kreme’s UK HQ is also at Frimley).

Donut lovers love Sassys Sugar Donuts so much they’ve requested the Sweet Delights be filled with Strawberry Jam, Custard, Biscoff, Nutella, White Hazelnut Cream and Lemon, and I can confirm that the fruits are to die for.
If you don’t catch Sarah in her trailer in the community, you can buy her sugar donuts and cinnamon variety online. She also makes decorated donuts for parties, weddings and events. Some of the spectacular flavors she sells are Strawberry and White Chocolate, Biscoff, Chocolate Flakes, Kinder Bueno, Oreo Cookie, Sicilian Lemon, Peanut Butter, Coffee and Nuts, Chocolate Chips chocolate, smarties, jammy dodger, ice cream and party rings.
When ordering from Sarah’s website, a box of eight of the classic donuts costs £12, while a pack of six coated donuts costs £15. She is looking to launch Bakewell Cherry, Percy Pig, Sassy Spider and Pistachio flavors soon.
Shortlisted for Best Local Food and Drink Producer at the latest Muddy Stilettos Awards, Sarah said she was delighted to be recognized in Surrey’s accolades which will be announced on Tuesday June 21.
Sarah said: “Having not worked as a beautician for most of the last year, I saw a trailer of donuts for sale and as my dream was to own a cafe I thought to myself why not, this could be fun.We now have a dedicated donut kitchen, as well as a fully renovated event trailer ready for parties, weddings and events.
