Got to Get That Dough

donutsMy autumn quarter was a busy one, so much so that I forgot to put some time aside for my true love, doughnuts. When you get the craving for doughnuts, there is a dilemma that arises: which doughnut shop do I go to? I could play it safe and revisit a familiar place like Do-Rite Donuts. On the other hand, I could step out of my comfort zone and try a different doughnut shop. 

As it turns out, there is a Stan’s Donuts less than a mile from my apartment. Upon entering I was disappointed with the low variety and quantity of doughnuts, but I was to blame because I did go in the evening. Nevertheless, there were some extraordinary flavors to choose from. I went with a Captain Crunch doughnut with a cream filling and when that fried pastry touched my palette, I realized the premium doughnut price tag was well worth it. There are Stan’s Donuts scattered across the city. I just ran into another one off of the Roosevelt Red Line. I recommend you go in, try one, try two, or maybe a dozen, and you will agree doughnuts are the best desserts out there.
