No visit is complete without a visit to a local donut shop and on this, our last hours in New York before catching our plane to Italy, we indulged in one fancy donut from this well-reviewed joint.
The Place: Dough Doughnuts
Location: Times Square area, New York City
Doughnut tried: Horchata Cinnamon Glazed
Price: $3 for regular donuts, $3.50 for the special variety. Our single selection was in the latter category.
Verdict: Pretty Good. Not the best we’ve had. I think the issue was in the name. This doughnut was certainly made up of lots of dough- thick and chewy and not enough glaze in proportion to the dough.
Rating: 6.5 out of 10
Dough is a mini chain with locations around the city
So many selections! Lisa whittled it down to three choices, and I had to pick one out of the three for us to share.
The other choices Lisa made me decide on were the toasted coconut and the Nutella centered doughnut
Too big and heavy to pick up with your bare hands, this one definitely needed the fork and knife!
No trip is complete without a visit to a local doughnut shop, and on this our last day in Dubai we indulged in some creations from Dum Dum Donutterie…
As the sign states, these doughnuts are baked, not fried
This donut shop has other locations and is not original to Dubai, it actually started in the United Kingdom
These are Cronuts, and the donut dude told us that these are what makes Dum Dum Donutterie famous
We went with the Croconut and four mini donuts
$6 for one Cronut
$2.15 for each mini donut
Verdict: Meh, not worth the high price
2 out of 5 stars
They just didn’t have the wow factor to justify the price. The mini donuts were basically the same except for whatever filling they had.
The Place: Glam Doll Doughnuts
Location: Minneapolis, MN neighborhood nicknamed “Eat Street”
Doughnuts tried: Bombshell and Sunday Love in the Park
Price: $3 for the Bombshell, $2.50 for the SLP, but they overcharged a $3 price
Verdict: Spot on yumminess, though slightly overpriced; however the market will pay these prices. Still worth it as long as it is not a regular thing.
After my half marathon, Lisa and I walked around the campus and discovered this location of Fractured Prune Doughnuts – – we actually found them on Saturday in downtown Phoenix, but it had already closed fir the day. Well we can’t let this opportunity pass us up. And so we got one doughnut, as per our doughnut agreement.
In business since 1976
You walk in and find a giant board of doughnut creations...
But instead of donuts already made, ready to sell, you instead have a bevy of different glazes and toppings
The donuts are fried plain, and then they are handcrafted to the specifications of the flavor
Once created, they are presented in this nifty little box
Voila! Lisa chose the Lemon glaze
Yeah, it's gonna be a little hard to eat, so lick those fingers!
Sold! Only $2 + tax for so many different combinations, we liked how warm and crisp and fresh the donut was. No stale, wasted doughnuts here, just fresh and made right before your eyes. Yum!!
