This will be the third part of a small series we have been working on.
The quest to find the ULTIMATE DONUT!
Just so you know, in my head I hear a grand echoing voice bellowing that out. .
A couple months ago the girls and I took in upon ourselves to locate the best donut shop in the Joplin area. So far we have posted about 3 shops, you can read about them in our first and second donut posts. After we visited College Station we had plans of making one final stop. But plans changed when we sporadically added another contender to the list with an unplanned donut stop on Saturday morning.
Before we get “all serious” talking about our donut stop I thought it would be fun to share a little donut humor.
The Donut Hole
First off let say the word hole being in the name is completely appropriate. This place was quite a “hole in the wall” It wasn’t fancy, or well decorated. But it was full of locals picking up their regular orders, sitting around drinking coffee and catching up on all the new gossip.
This was the display (pardon the blurry thumb picture). That’s it! That was all they had. It was about 9:00 and the inventory was pretty low. We placed our order for some cake donuts and a couple glazed that were in the process of being made at the time.
They were still so warm I could barely hold it to take this picture. Words can’t even say how delicious it was, UH-mazing.
So now the donut shop that was the least pleasant to hang out at, had the lowest selection and inventory some how magically has the tastiest donuts we have had so far. And, I haven’t even brought up the fact that they are the cheapest to!
How will we ever pick a favorite? Good thing we still have at least one more stop before we have to choose a winner.
What is your hands down favorite kind of donut to eat?
