As Homer Simpson once asked... is there anything donuts cannot do?
We are yet to come up with an answer, that's for sure, although there is something The Hollywood Gossip can do:
Rank the top 11 donuts in America!
Oh, yes, we went around the nation and sampled every type of this delicious breakfast/dessert item that we could find. It was a tough job, but someone had to do it.
We present our yummy findings below and we ask readers to weigh in with their take:
Entenmann's Powdered Sugar Donuts
Entenmann's refers to these as "breakfast" food. We refer to them as "dessert." Either way, we can all agree they are delicious.
The world might run on Dunkin, but their donuts don't hold a candle to some of the others on this list.
Mother Clucker, Gourdoughs
The Mother Clucker from Gourdoughs in Austin is...confusing. With fried chicken and a honey glaze, is it dinner? Dessert? Both?
Sour Cream Donut, Peter Pan Bakery
The Sour Cream donut from Peter Pan Bakery in NYC is an excellent balance of savory and sweet while being surprisingly light.
Donuttery Vegan Blueberry Donuts
These vegan blueberry donuts from the Donuttery in California sure do look tasty. But can they measure up to...
Double Chocolate Old Fashioned, Do Right Donuts
The double chocolate old fashioned from Do Right Donuts? It's certainly worthy of debate.
Chocolate with Cocoa Nibs, Dough
From NYC's Dough, the chocolate with cocoa nibs doughnut looks delicious. It tastes delicious, too.
Maple Bacon Doughnut from Voodoo Doughnuts
Voodoo Doughnuts has long been a Portland, OR doughnut staple. They were the first to introduce the maple bacon doughnut on the world.
Beignets, Cafe du Monde
THE French donut, beignets from Cafe du Monde are a New Orleans tradition. A delicious, fluffy, sugary tradition.
Glazed, Krispy Kreme
There's something about the hot sign being on that brings peace to the world. It doesn't get MUCH better than a glazed Krispy Kreme original, but it DOES get better.
Strawberries and Cream, Sublime Doughnuts
No trip to Atlanta is complete without a stop at Sublime Doughnuts for a fresh strawberries and cream doughnut. Pick up an A-Town Cream or Nutella doughnut while you're there, too. You won't be disappointed.
