“The store design is going to be worth a visit,” Ihasz said, “with the llama theme and classic ice cream shoppe vibe.”

While an official date is dependent on construction deadlines, Ihasz said the Shelton location is currently planned to open around the second week of April.

“We will have a finalized grand opening soon,” Ihasz said.

According to their website, Sugar Llamas aims to be every customer’s favorite local donut shop, coffee house and ice cream parlor all rolled into one; a one-stop treat experience for the morning, afternoon and night.

The store’s mini donuts come in a variety of “house favorite” flavors, including plain, cinnamon sugar and cocoa powdered sugar, as well as “Llama Legend” varieties like peanut butter cup, s’mores and chocolate chip pancake.

Customers can also top each donut with a number of exciting “drizzles,” such as apple, caramel, marshmallow, cotton candy, coconut and Reese’s peanut butter.

Anyone looking to add some fun flavor to their coffee can also choose from a long list of options that include caramel chai, white chocolate, cinnamon and lavender. Additionally, every drink is served with a free hot mini donut.
