My boys and I like donuts. So we decided to start our DONUT TOUR. So many great donut shops, so little time. We were looking for places with friendly faces and interesting toppings like fruity pebbles, marshmallows and bacon. We were hoping to find some tasty favorites and a few new varieties.
So... the kids are out of school for the summer, and I was hoping to get an early start to our donut adventure. I wanted to start early, but because the boys are both of high-school age, this was a tough task. Finally ... at 11:30 am, we were ready to go.
“ A doughnut or donut is a type of fried dough confection or dessert food. The doughnut is popular in many countries and prepared in various forms as a sweet snack that can be homemade or purchased in bakeries, supermarkets, food stalls, and franchised specialty vendors. Doughnuts are usually deep fried from a flour dough, and typically either ring-shaped or a number of shapes without a hole, and often filled, but can also be ball-shaped ("doughnut holes").” - Wikipedia
Amazing Glaze Donut Company
4988 Middle Road, Gibsonia, PA
The shop closest to our house is called Amazing Glazed Donut Company. I've always heard good things and couldn't wait to check it out. The shop is tucked away in a little strip mall in the middle between Hampton and West Deer townships. First thing that i noticed when we entered, was how super clean and adorable it was. The owner kindly greeted us and was super friendly. We told her it was our first time in the shop and she made suggestions of different glazes and toppings to try. Finally we got our half dozen to go. When we got home we each tried one. I thought they were really delicious & the boys had no problem finishing theirs. #amazingglazedonuts
Peace, Love and Little Donuts of Wexford
11915 Perry Hwy, Wexford, PA 15090
The following week we decided to take the cousins and head off to Wexford to search for some sweet things. This was our first time there. The rain couldn't damper or disappoint our spirits this morning, cause even though the place was small, it was colorful and almost magical. The options were plentiful and fun. Because the donuts were smaller than the the norm, we each picked 2. It was difficult to chose but we all got something different. The staff was friendly and the donuts were so delicious.We can wait to go back.
