Knaus Berry Farm Doughnut Collab at the Salty Donut. If you missed the chance to try the legendary sticky-bun doughnut at the Salty Donut a few months ago, don't worry: They're coming back to the Wynwood shop on Tuesday, for almost two weeks. Drenched in a roasted-pecan/toffee-rum glaze and topped with caramelized pecans, each one encases a famous Knaus Berry Farm cinnamon roll inside a thick layer of the Salty Donut's signature 24-hour brioche dough. Then the whole thing is fried, baked, and garnished by hand at the shop. The flavor debuted about three years ago and has made numerous appearances since. It was in March 2016 that the Salty Donut and Knaus Berry Farm, both known for outrageously long lines, teamed up for the first time to make their most indulgent treat to date which, naturally, resulted in even longer lines. 7:30 a.m. until sold out Tuesday, January 22, through Sunday, February 3, at the Salty Donut, 50 NW 23rd St., Miami; 305-925-8126;
