Pastries You Donut Want to Miss

These treats are amazing no mater the source

Did you know that there are a-glazing donuts all around the twin cities? This classic American cuisine is loved by many, but I believe there is a difference between a donut you buy at a grocery store, like Jerry’s or Lunds, and a donut you buy at a classic bakery, like A Baker’s Wife or Glam Doll Donuts. 

I tried two donuts, a classic cake donut from Lunds (various locations around the Twin Cities, open  6 a.m – 10 p.m every day) and compared it to a classic cake donut at Glam Doll Donuts (2605 Nicollet Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55408, 7 a.m – 3 p.m on weekdays, 8 a.m – 4 p.m weekends). When it comes to donuts, I look for frosting that melts in your mouth as you bite into a moist base. A donut should have creamy frosting and the cake part should have a good texture. When I tried the Lunds donuts, they were your classic donuts with vanilla frosting and sprinkles. As I bit into the donut it met all the criteria. But there wasn’t a distinct flavor that stuck to my taste buds. It tasted like every other donut. 

When I bit into a Glam Doll Donut, it left a sweet taste on my tongue that made me want to take another bite. The donut had creamy frosting and soft and moist cake, and for a bonus, it had a unique flavor that made it taste like something special. In my opinion, if you are deciding whether to go to a grocery store or bakery to get a donut, choose the bakery. The donut from the bakery will have its unique flavor and make you want even more donuts.
