Let’s Talk about Donuts and What Makes Them Great!

Yes. We are going to discuss donuts and what makes a donut great and plan my travel according to your donut recommendations. Sure, the world is probably about to explode and I may not make it to be 30 years old, but the most important thing happening this week is that we need to talk about what makes a donut great. We really need to take time out of our days to discuss just one freaking thing that doesn’t feel like it’s 500 million pounds on on our backs. I truly believe that we all need a break from the constant barrage of heavy news we are getting and therefore we are just going to take about sugary, frosting-covered, glazed, calorie-laden donuts. Because sometimes that’s what we need in our lives.

Anyway.

One of the things that has made me most proud in life is the numerous times that I’ve been told by complete strangers who follow my blog that every time they see a pink sprinkle donut, they think of me. Honestly, that is one of the greatest compliments I could ever dream of.

I’ve had this outfit planned out in my head for over a year. I’ve had a built in excuse for getting donuts and I have failed to get donuts. I truly did go through a period of losing myself and I am just going to blame that phase on why I never wore this outfit.

Anyway, let’s talk about what makes a donut great! First things first,  are you a yeast or cake donut person? Choose wisely. I’m not saying which one is better, because they both have their merits, but you are typically in one or the other camp.

In my hometown of Wichita, Kansas, The Donut Whole makes a Homer J donut which is what I have in this post and is the only cake donut I like. Why do I love this donut so much? Because everything about it is right. The frosting isn’t too sweet, the sprinkles are the perfect ratio of donut to sprinkle (I could do an entire post alone on how much a under-sprinkled donut pisses me off) and it’s just happy. Oh and it also photographs beautifully which is, second to taste, is the most important thing a donut in 2017 can be.

Donuts are the trifecta of food. They give you Instagram content, there is an emoji for them so I don’t even have to type the word, no one is able to be sad while eating a donut and they allow an adult to indulge their love of sugar and sprinkles before 10 am. Truly, donuts are the real MVP for so many reasons.

But here’s the thing, I actually think that what kind of donut you like says a lot about you and the choices you make in life. I don’t have a solid philosophy behind this, but I’ve found the best people to like the best donuts. (In case you are wondering, yes, my friends and I have met up a lot over donuts.) Soooo because you all are the best people in the world, I want to know what makes a donut great in your opinion! What do you get? Also, please tell me the best donut you’ve ever had. I want to know, I’m currently planning my travel around donut recommendations, I kid you not.
