If you don't already know that I love donuts, I'm telling you now: I am a donut freak! If you give me any donut, I'll eat it but I really only love one kind of donut and that's glazed. Gotta stick with the original. Oh, and mini donuts are also divine. The mini donuts have to be coated with cinnamon sugar, although I had glazed and chocolate covered ones recently and they were pretty darn good too. There's just one problem with donuts, however.
The thing is, I've become more obsessed with donuts lately because it's becoming more apparent that I just can't find that perfect donut of my childhood. As a kid, I remember donuts tasting fantastic. I couldn't get enough of them. But now, whenever I bite into a donut it seems there's something missing. Of course, I could just be remembering something different - things always seem bigger, brighter and better when you're a kid.
What I'm really searching for, is a donut that came with the Hot Dog Day meal. Anyone else ever have Hot Dog Day at school? This was a special day that took place a couple of times a year. It was the day that we didn't need to bring a lunch to school because we would have hot dogs. Weeks before, we would put our orders in and eagerly anticipate this day. I always ordered two hot dogs and two donuts. No milk, because I didn't like milk. Everyone was always amazed that I would eat that much. But I digress. The thing I loved most about Hot Dog Day was the donut. It was just the right size, with glaze that didn't flake and just the right amount of "chewiness." It was perfect. And I have been looking for that donut ever since. Krispy Kreme donuts are too flat and too sweet for me. Winchell's donuts don't have quite enough flavor and they're too spongy. Mini donuts, as I mentioned before are amazing but as far as I know they're only available at fairs and at a beach not close to me.
Can anyone help me out here? Where's your favorite place to get a good donut?
