I ate a donut for lunch, then carrots and hummus for dessert to “balance things out”. How that equals balance is math that evades me, even if the logic does not. Donuts With a Difference, via a donut angel disguised as a thoughtful coworker, supplied the deliciousness. Plush and pillowy, so soft I wanted to rub my cheek against it — texturally everything a yeast donut should be. A light hand with the glaze provided just enough of a sugary coating for the donut, which itself was blessedly not sweet (in donut terms, mind you). While I would’ve been happy with a little bit more filling, which was smooth and tart though artificial looking and tasting, the donut was ideally sized – 6 or 7 reasonable, indulgent bites. The donut was obviously fresh, and I wonder if Dunkin Donuts’ donuts would likewise impress if scarfed down straight out of the oven. My main beef with them is that they always seem on the stale side. One would think that donuts come out of the ovens quite often, considering their rate of business, but then maybe it’s something about the process of making them, rather than the time from oven to mouth, that gives the impression of them being stale even if they are not.
