"The Magic is in the Hole"
A catchy slogan for a doughnut company, but is the hole where the magic resides? Wrap your philisophical heads around that one!
So I ordered three doughnuts, a classic glazed, toasted coconut cake, and an Old Dirty Bastard. I think when evaluating a doughnut shop, it should be mandatory to order a glazed doughnut. It's the benchmark or baseline for every doughnut shop everywhere. One can always count on a doughnut shop to have a glazed doughnut. The toasted coconut cake doughnut was picked because I wanted coconut. The third doughnut, an Old Dirty Bastard, I picked on name alone. An ODB, come one, you gotta try that doughnut.
The classic glazed was 'cakier' than most. Most glazed doughnuts are airy and anything but dense. This glazed had some texture and chew. My toasted coconut was more typical; with a soft, spongy mouthfeel.
The ODB was something special. A normal glazed style doughnut with chocolate glaze, crushed Oreo cookies, and peanut butter the combination made for a substantial breakfast treat when combined with my Stumptown coffee. While the name alone compelled me to buy it, the combination would make me a repeat customer.
