Astro Doughnuts Is Giving Away Free Moon Pies During Its Santa Monica Opening

By Malia Wooten

You won’t have to drive to DTLA to taste what you know and love about Astro Doughnuts and Fried Chicken!

Santa Monica is set to welcome a Downtown favorite this Thursday, March 28 – and having the beloved treats on the other side of the 405 isn’t the only exciting bit of this news.

In honor of opening a new location, Astro’s is planning on gifting guests with free Moon Pies throughout the day. Once every hour, one of the gifted Moon Pies will be a Golden Doughnut serving as a ‘Golden Ticket’ of some sorts. The lucky Angeleno who finds the Moon Pie filled with golden filling instead of its usual marshmallow fluff will win free doughnuts for a year!

Co-founder Elliot Spaisman told L.A. Weekly that the brand wanted to create something new and playful for Astro’s recent Santa Monica development, which explains the brand’s latest invention! If you pop on by the latest 1,300-square-foot expansion, be sure to try the chocolate birthday cake doughnut filled with a CBD-infused chocolate mint buttercream frosting topped with sprinkles. Apparently, this doughnut will “beat away the scaries.”

Location: 2309 Main Street, Santa Monica, CA 90405. See it on Google maps.
