This post is extremely overdue. I would be deducted a million letter grades if I were turning in a paper for class right now. But, like everyone who has survived a liberal arts degree, I have a very very good excuse…
All of the doughnut places were closed! I know I said I would be reviewing Tony’s Dougnuts in Portland, ME over the holidays, but unfortunately I didn’t count on Tony’s being closed the entire time I was in the Northeast. I even tried going to Tim Horton’s in a desperate move to have some deep fried yumminess, but even they were taking the holidays off.
Looks like you will have to wait until I can afford a flight back East to hear about the amazingness that is the Tony’s molasses glazes cake doughnut.
Anyway, I’ve been doughnutless and therefore, somewhat depressed – until this morning when I spotted a certain food truck parked right on the corner in front of my office…
That’s right – a gourmet mini-doughnut food truck… named after a beaver.
Who wouldn’t want to try these? For one, there is a beaver on the truck, two they are mini, and three… they were right in front of me.
Seriously – look how cute and small that is!
So here we go…
Battle of the Doughtnuts – part 2:
1. Deliciousness factor: 7 out of 10
The cake mini-doughnut was warm like it was fresh out of the oven and basically melted in my mouth. I only tried the cinnamon sugar doughnut (stolen from my very generous co-worker) so perhaps I’ll have to sample some of their other gourmet flavors to get the full idea of how good they are.
2. How empty my wallet is: 5 out of 10
Well - in this case my wallet wasn’t empty at all as I was the biggest doughnut mooch in the world this morning. But $4 for a half dozen? Not too bad considering 3 mini-doughnuts probably equals a regular sized one.
3. Overall amazingness: 7 out of 10
The fact that these doughnuts appeared to me as if they were some sort of breakfast pastry mirage may be tipping the scale somewhat – but, the overall experience of Beaver Doughnuts was fantastic and kind of adorable. Keep a sharp eye on their twitter handle @BeaversDoughnuts to see where they will turn up next in the Windy City!
