Go Nuts for Doughnuts

Feb 5, 2014

I don’t have a diamond fetish – I’d much prefer another ring that begins with a “d”: the glorious, glorious doughnut.

Are you a doughnut fan? I hope so because I’ve found dozens and dozens of doughnut goods to feed your hunger for the delicious circular treat.

I believe that doughnuts deserve to be designated as the queen of all pastry-dom for many reasons, but predominantly because there’s a flavor for every occasion.

Craving something sweet? Get something with both frosting and sprinkles. Just woke up and not ready for a sugar rush? Try munching on a few apple cider ones (preferably warm).

Feeling like some fruit? Try one with a delectable lemon or strawberry filling. And when you don’t have room for an entire doughnut, just seek out a doughnut hole or two. Perfect.

My favorite place for a doughnut fix is The Holy Donut in Portland, Maine. They’re so scrumptious that I’ll admit to fantasizing about stringing half a dozen on a string and wearing them like a doughnut version of the classic candy necklace.

Who is your most treasured doughnut dealer? Your shop of choice? Please let me know in the comments – I’ll be sure to stop by if I’m ever in the area. A cross-country doughnut tour sounds like a pretty dreamy vacation to me….
