Donut Research

July 19, 2019

.

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! ?????

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…..

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?

Millie, tell mummy that the reason there are so many Dunkin’ Donuts there is because the original Dunkin’ Donuts started in Boston! Xoxo

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…

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 »

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! ???

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 »
