The doughnut shop notably known for Ariane Grande licking their donuts, has somewhat benefited from the incident. Wolfee Donuts, located in Lake Elsinore, California, has had their sales triple ever since the video of the doughnut licking went public, according to owner Joe Marin. Customers are flocking into the store to support them.
Marin said he is still angry about her treatment of his donuts and her America-bashing comments. Marin said he initially watched the video out of curiosity, after employees told him that a celebrity had been in his store. The incident took place Saturday night around 11:30pm, and the licking occurred out of a dare, and then she even spat on his products. “She licked the ones with the frosting, she was spitting on the white powder (donuts). A customer out there could have got sick,” Marin said.
Marin says, Grande has not personally apologized to him and that he’s not buying the statement she released, “She’s saying the statement because she basically got caught.” Grande is taking heavy criticism from her actions that took place at the doughnut shop, but it seems Marin will overall benefit from the incident.
