They say you’re supposed to blog about what you’re passionate about, and for me that happens to be coffee, killer mascara, cardigans, and craft doughnuts.
Although you’re likely to be hungover, I can assure you that you read that correctly. Not craft beer (no comment on whether that’s another favorite of mine until after my next birthday, but posts about that will come once it’s no longer of questionable legality), but craft doughnuts.
Is that not the ultimate basic girl’s dream? Pumpkin spice doughnuts? I wonder when they’ll start making pumpkin spice oxygen. Except now that I think about it, that’s actually not far-fetched and they probably already sell it at those oxygen bars you see at Las Vegas.
Harold’s Doughnuts is a craft doughnut shop that opened across the street from my apartment, and it was both a blessing and a curse because I’m not sure what I did right (or wrong) to deserve a doughnut shop across the street from my apartment. Why couldn’t it have been a gym?
Of course I’m not too upset that it’s a doughnut shop and not a gym.
The craft doughnut industry, like the craft beer industry, specializes in creating high-quality products that offer both traditional and new flavors and combinations. Or so I assume. I made that all up. But what I do know is that craft doughnuts are the best thing to arrive in my town since Chick-Fil-A, and when I can get doughnut flavors like Red Velvet, Maple Bacon, Blueberry Lemon Citrus, and Peanut Butter & Jelly, they’re the best thing to arrive since sliced bread. Especially when the sliced bread is the cheapest kind your money can buy at Wal-Mart.
P.S. In case I made you hungry and you can’t decide whether you want beer or doughnuts now, here’s a useful article that lists 9 beer and donut pairings, because such a thing exists in some beautiful parallel universe where carbs don’t exist.
