It’s a good thing that tomorrow is national Donut day. It’s been another nutsy week here, and my Thursday dinner of fried wontons and Pho just didn’t do it. But I did notice that the sign on my local donut emporium (Tasty Donuts and Coffee) reminding me that in the USA, Friday is donut day.
Now I do not pretend to be a connoisseur of them: Growing up my neighbor Mrs.Campbell would make sure us Pease kids had at least two of her delicious cider donut with a big glass of milk. (Is there anything than adults buying us off with sweets? We’d happily mow their lawns for those donuts while we’d dig a ditch for some of Mrs. Newhall’s raspberry turnovers.)
Anyway, back to donuts. Atkins Farms in Amhers, MA makes very good cider ones and ships. I’m to a big fan of Krispy Kreme: I find their spun-sugar cotton-candy texture cloying. I’ve never been to local legend Randy’s donuts down by the airport (pictured) and I still have to make a trip to Stan’s in Westwood. So for tomorrow I will likely hit Tasty donuts and see if they have a nice Apple Fritter and a regular coffee.
So if you’re a donut aficionado, where do you get your fix? Let us know in the comments.
