I Love Donuts ... But Not From New York

Pizza. Cupcakes. Cuisines from around the world. New York City offers an astounding amount and variety of some of the best food available anywhere.

Yet it can't make a good donut.

Admittedly, I haven't done tons of research on this. I would if I could. It's actually difficult to find a non-chain donut around here, although Tim Horton's and especially Dunkin' Donuts seem to be as ubiquitous as Starbucks.

But Tim Horton's and Dunkin' Donuts are least-common-denominator donuts. In other words, they suck. They're dry when they're not soggy, and Betty Crocker makes better frosting.

Just because I don't prefer them, however, doesn't mean I won't eat them. It took three or four tries before determining that the coconut-topped donut and chocolate donut holes from Dunkin' Donuts are OK. And don't get me wrong-- all of their donuts are edible when someone else brings them to work to share.

But when I crave a donut, my thoughts still revert to Ohio. Buckeye Donuts. Schuler's. Frosting and filling so sugary and rich that I can practically hear the cavities forming.

  1. I rarely eat donuts, but when I do, Dunkin Donuts are my favorite! I hate Krispy Kreme, which everyone goes nuts over. DD's also has great flatbread sandwiches!
