Mummy loves a good donut but she doesn’t really eat them all that often because she says they just have too many calories in them. BUT… once we got up here to New England she noticed that they seem to have A BIG THING FOR DONUTS, especially “Dunkin’ Donuts” but there is a kind called “Honey Dew” that she had never heard of! THEN we went to Provincetown today, or “P-town” as the locals call it, and they have a SPECIAL Portuguese donut called a malassada… so really, there was nothing left for her to do but have a TASTE TEST! She said she would “take one for the team” and cut back on something else tomorrow, or maybe the next day… but here are the results. She said, “You are welcome!” ??❤️??
1. HONEY DEW was very fluffy and yeasty in flavor. The glaze was not overly sweet. This was a VERY NICE DONUT! Mummy sort of preferred this donut because she likes a donut with a more yeast-forward taste but Dunkin’ Donuts was a very close second.
2. DUNKIN’ DONUTS was fluffy, but not as fluffy as the Honey Dew donut. The glaze was very sweet, but not overpowering. Daddy liked this one the best. You can find a Dunkin’ Donuts store on literally every single corner up here… they are EVERYWHERE! ??? It is AMAZING! Sometimes there are TWO across the street from each other, I MEAN REALLY! HOW MANY DONUTS DO THESE PEOPLE UP HERE EAT?!?!?!
3. PROVINCETOWN PORTUGUESE BAKERY is a fried circle of dough called a malassada, which is then dredged in cinnamon-sugar. It was delicious and tasted just like a funnel cake. It is nothing like the donuts that we think of, but it is the Portuguese donut. Mummy did NOT throw it away. She and Daddy happily ate every bit of it… for the sake of the research project.
Mummy hopes that her hard work today has been helpful to you. Tomorrow she will walk a few laps around the campsite and perhaps starve herself… until maybe noon, when she will start looking for her next LOBSTER ROLL! ?????
Our parents reported that all 3 were delicious! ?
Enjoy! They sound delicious!
They were reported to be very good but we did not get any. Mummy said she would give us a nice snack later! ?
Thank your Mom for the doughnut research. I am sure that it was a difficult job. Glad that Mom was the TROOPER and sacrificed calories for the team. Enjoy your trip. ??
You are welcome. She is always thinking of others! ???
I have not had a good donut in some time. I want one for breakfast.
Well, now you have a few good choices! ?❤️???
So self sacrificing! I thank you! Heeher
She really is a trooper! Lololol
You still can’t go wrong with Dunkin’ Donuts.
For sure! Those were very good ones. ❤️?❤️?
I LOVE DONUTS AND WOULD HAVE TO TRY EVERYONE. THE PORTUGUESE DONUT SOUNDS INTERESTING..YUM YUM
GLAD THAT MOMMY SHARES ..AND YES, TMRW MORE LOBSTER ..
Living on donuts and lobster… things could be worse! ????
Millie LaRue all the Donuts sounded yummy. Wish we could try them. I do like Dunkin Donuts. But the others sound Great too.
They were all good… as my parents reported. We didn’t get any.
They sound delicious, little Millie! ?
Mummy said they were really good but she better hold off on the donuts after all of this! Lolololol
Glad Mommie took one for the team and ate those donuts. Lol.
It was in the name of science ya know! Lolololol
Oh tell Mummy I have been on a maple cake craze lately. Chloe Ann prefers the plain old fashioned. We share LOL ???
Ohhhhhh we have never had maple cake!!!! ?
So glad that Mummy is getting important research done! ?❤
Oh yes, research must always continue! Lolololol
Oh I’m so happy Mommy took one for the team to tell us all about it. I wish I could eat the Honey Dew! Sound like my kind of doughnut.
The Honey Dew was the best one! ❤️
Love your donuts. I am a donut lover but as you I control intake. Malassada sounds so very yummy. I walk 4 miles a week so really don’t want excess donuts but I love them.
BUT WHEN ON VACATION IT IS NOT EASY TO NOT EAT THE GOOD AND DIFFERANT FOODS.
YOUR LOBSTER SOUNDS VERY GOOD. I LOVE THAT ALSO.
TAKE CARE. BE SAFE… LOVE YOUR BABY’S. THEY ARE SO SWEET…..
They had their fill of donuts today, that’s for sure! Lolololol
Thanks Millie… now I’m craving donuts!!!
That’s what we feel like!
Nothing like a good yummy donut!!
Glad you “took one for quality control reasons!”
Mummy said it’s always nice when IMPORTANT RESEARCH is appreciated!!! ????
I’m from Boston. The founder of Dunkin Donuts was a friend of my family. He started out with a food truck, and then he built that amazing company. Enjoy the lobster rolls to come! And try the Ipswich fried clams in New England. Are you going to Maine?
Wowza!!!! This all started with a food truck! That is really AMAZING!!!
Millie, tell mummy that the reason there are so many Dunkin’ Donuts there is because the original Dunkin’ Donuts started in Boston! Xoxo
WOW!!! Thanks for that information!!! They sure are popular up here!!! I have never seen TWO of the same stores ACROSS THE STREET FROM EACH OTHER though, but there they were… Dunkin’ Donuts!!! Lololololol
They all sound yummy but I love Dunkin’ Donuts
The Dunkin’ Donuts were really good and Daddy really liked those. We have those down where we live so we can find them but we don’t have Honey Dew so Mummy might not ever have another. ???
I HAVE NEVER TASTED A DOUNUT BUT I HAVE HAD LOBSTER. I WOULD JOIN MS. DARSEY LOOKING FOR THE NEXT LOBSTER ROLL.
You would really be enjoying her daily lobster tastings! In a few weeks they will be at LOBSTER FEST in Maine!!! She wants to taste lobster in as many ways as they can fix it!
Great research, a sweet project!
It was tough to watch my parents struggle through the research, but they managed with great strength! All for this post!!! Lolololol
I love a good donut, it’s hard to find a good donut shop here in Aurora, CO though, that’s close anyway, I’m glad mommy & daddy did the research, great job, I can hardly wait & see what tomorrow brings, thank you ☺️
I didn’t know that there weren’t many donut places in Colorado. That is interesting. Maybe you can GOOGLE nearby places if you ever get a terrible urge for one! ??❤️
Really appreciate mommy doing research for us, I know it was hard LoL
It was hard… but ya know, SCIENCE IS HARD! Lololololol
You are making me hungry this morning. Love following your adventures?
Thanks for keeping up with us this summer. I bet there is a donut store near you!!!
One has to do what one has to do in the name of research! Looked delicious ?
Science must always move forward!!! Even for the lowly donut. ???
I am glad she took one for the team-now I am craving a good yeast donut! Cannot wait for the Lobsta Roll” reviews!
Lololololol it might be impossible to do a review on those but she is trying to keep track of all the lobster things she has eaten!
The best lobster roll we found on our New England trip a few years ago was outside Bangor, ME. A tiny little place called Eagles Nest…
Thank you! We are writing that down!!!
Thank your mommy for being a trooper and taste testing for us. She is a very brave mommy. lol So glad you are having a great trip. Stay cool and be careful in this heat. Love watching your travels through the US. God Bless all of you as you make your way through the east coast.
Thank you for following along with us this summer. It has been a fun trip so far but really HOT! We are taking a day off today to rest because it is supposed to be almost 100 degrees and we just can’t take that kind of heat but we have a nice wooded campground where we can go for a nice walk today. Sometimes we just have to change our plans. ??
Love this review and Mommy is allowed…after all it IS vacation!!!
Yes… Mummy says a vacation is the time to sample new foods and splurge on others… but they are gonna have to walk off all those donuts! Just sayin’ ???
The Honey Dew sounds like my kind of Donut!! I don’t like donuts with all that sweet stuff on it !!! But light fluffy & yeasty sounds delicious !! Tell your human I said she did a great job with her research !!!!
It was very good… Mummy likes a donut with a more yeasty flavor but the Dunkin’ Donut was EXCELLENT TOO. It was a fun research project! ?❤️??
Millie, I’m so thankful Mummy and Daddy forced themselves to taste test these donuts. It must have been awful for them? we appreciate their willingness to sacrifice those calories? we have a bakery in the town I grew up in Called West Side Bakery. In Mishawaka Pronounced ( Mish A walk A )Indiana. Melt in your mouth! Us Belgins know how to bake and those calories do show on me? were about an hour away so we wait until the Holidays to add the calories. They make the homemade Kiflies. Oh my, they are to die for. Delicious pastry look… Read more »
Ohhhhh Mummy loves ALL of those bakery things you are talking about but we don’t have a good bakery like that near us. She can only get those things when we travel and she finds a good bakery somewhere!!!
Thank you so much Mummy! Taking one for the team, and for research! My mummy loves them all!!! We will have to try some of all if we get up that way!
We will be curious to hear your results from your own research! ????
Was nice of mommy to take one for team. They all sound delicious. Did she let you girls take a lick or two. Looks like a wonderful time. Thanks for keeping us in the loop while on vacation.
No, we didn’t get any. Mummy wanted to make sure she and Daddy had PLENTY TO SAMPLE! ???
WOW, History Lessons, Taste Testing Research, FUN, FUN, FUN. What a wonderful summer – minus the heat of course!! Love your posts, look forward to them very much. Love, Hugs.
We are trying to get the full experience from our trip! ???
There are so many Dunkin Donuts up there because that is where they started.
Dunkin Donuts is my favorite.
Someone else just told us they started up here… no wonder they are so popular!!! They really are good!!! ???
Thanks for taking one for the team!
Wow sounds good, i never had that kind of donut,we always have Krispy Cremes,i like them, we have a di kin donut here so many flavors, glad ur having a great time, stay cool,love u all prayers,for all,Little Millie, soon ur mummy will fond u sweet girls a great treat someplace, ??????????????????????
She brought plenty of treats with us so we always have snacks but those donuts DID LOOK GOOD!
Darsey, I love that you took one for the team. But you only tasted the glazed. What about the Boston Cremes- my fav?
Very jealous that you’re going to be in Maine during lobster fest. Love,love,love lobster!
Yeah…. she saw those boston cremes but she didn’t know if everyone would have them!!!! She had to choose a flavor that everyone would have… glazed. Although frankly she could eat almost ANY DONUT but she DID want a boston creme!!! ???
I don’t often have a donut and that’s not because I don’t like them. Oh my no. But if I were to have one, the Honey Dew would be my choice too. I love a yeasty lightly glazed soft and fresh donut. Fortunately, or unfortunately, I am thousands of miles away from Honey Dew so have to live vicariously through the traveling Yorkies. You tell your mama to enjoy every last morsel.
Mummy has had her “donut fix” now, so hopefully she can move on to another confection! At home, she very rarely stops for a donut anywhere but she said IN THE NAME OF SCIENCE she made an exception this time! ???
Research on food is good
Lololololol it is THE BEST! ?
Sounds like my kind of taking one for the team. I Love donuts
Research can be fun! Lol
I knew I shouldn’t read this post if I was hungry!!! LOL!
Mummy wishes she was doing PART 2 of the donut research… maybe another flavor!!! Lololol
I ALWAYS appreciate when you Mummy researches all the desserts! LOL My top favorite doughnut is Krispe Kreme… I love raised glazed doughnuts! We used to have a local doughnut shop that made the doughnuts when you ordered them … every doughnut was given to you hot and fresh with any toppings you wanted… they were very good doughnuts but only opened a couple hours a day and sadly they closed now. At the farm show in Harrisburg each January they sell POTATO DOUGHNUTS that are soooooo yummie!!! They are more of a dense cake type doughnut though. I would… Read more »
Ohhhh my gosh those sound good!!!!
Thanks for the super detail description of each donuts that I want one now!! hahahhaha Big Kiss!!
Lololololol Mummy enjoyed the research!!! ?❤️?
I’m on vacation also . Been eating lots of Krispy Kreme and they are soooo good. Will sure have to cut back soon and not eat so much. Ha. Enjoying reading about your trip. Thank you so much. Hugs and kisses .
Mummy and Daddy have loved the FOOD RESEARCH!!! Lololol
