Normally, I can avoid the donuts that show up every Friday in our office.
But some weeks…I plan out ahead of time which one I’m going to have.
Today was one of those days. Well, actually, last night I was already scheming to enjoy my donut, so I woke up craving it.
Krispy Kreme? No thanks.
Dunkin Donuts? Eh.
Fresh, locally made donuts from Carol Lee’s? Yes, please.
For some reason, I have always loved the cake donuts. Maybe because I don’t feel like I’m just eating sugary air? Who knows, but this chocolate iced-chocolate cake donut is definitely the best I’ve ever had. And I know where it’s made and that it’s fresh every morning. Top that, Entenmann’s.
Oh, and I snagged one for Nick, too. He likes to have them as “lunch dessert” if I can grab a sprinkled one for him.
No chocolate icing today, but they do always have Hokie-colored sprinkles, which makes it a bit more special.
Carol Lee also has 2 amazing flavors in their iced yeast donuts: maple glazed and toasted coconut. Those I do enjoy…but I think I still like the cake donuts best.
Oh yeah – and remember those donuts that I French-toasted? They were Carol Lee’s, too.
I think it’s a good thing I don’t live closer to the shop.
What’s your favorite local food?
