    Nothing beats learning about American history while indulging in a pastry or 2. That last one with the strawberry filling is too much for me to handle right now. I want it!
    The only problem is, I’m a major klutz and every time I eat something with a “filling”, it turns into a gravity experiment with whatever top I’m wearing that day (usually white).

      Hi Kimberlee – Trust me, I know so so much about um, “gravity”, haha! I have this problem on a daily basis. Partially why I just don’t wear white anymore… 🙂 The strawberry nutella donut might have been my favorite that day!

        Mary, you have no idea! Although I’m a huge foodie (not in the literal sense), I’m not very coordinated about getting it from my plate to my mouth. My mother put a bib on me until the age of 12 and now I’m wondering why I ever stopped wearing one. Maybe teenage rebellion or perhaps the Daisy Duck characters didn’t match my outfits very well? Either way, I wish I still had that Daisy Duck bib again.

  2. Ooh how cool. I bet wearing one of those dresses would be fun…for a couple hours and then it’d be nice to go back to jeans and a t-shirt haha.

    I looove cake donuts! I would have definitely gotten the carrot cake donut too. And the sheer amount of Nutella on top of the strawberry nutella donut…YES.

      Hi J.S. – Yeah, I think a couple of hours max would be fun and that after that… no more!

      I tend to always get cake donuts, they always look more exciting to me than the raised donuts, but a good, freshly made raised donut melts in your mouth. The nutella on top of that one is sheer genius to me. Nutella frosting = perfect.

  3. That’s a donut place on our list of ‘must visits’. Great selection, especially the strawberry nutella. I loved seeing the Civil War reenactment photos! What a cool trip this was!

    • mary says:

      Hi CC – Yes if you get the chance to visit, I highly recommend it! We went in the middle of the afternoon and the donuts still tasted freshly made. I suspect they make donuts throughout the day and there is so much to choose from! Yay, I’m glad someone else enjoys my civil war photos haha.

    DONUTS! I haven’t physically been to the Donuttery but my best friend brought donuts from here a long time ago and that is when I fell in love with the blueberry donut. SIGH. Anyway… what, carrot cake donut??! It’s a must to visit now! Thanks for sharing, Mary! Glad you had a fun day trip! 🙂

    • mary says:

      Hi Janice – There’s so much to try and sample here that I totally overlooked the blueberry. We’ll have to try it next time. I was impressed they offer variations on the frosting for many of their donuts. The carrot cake donuts are so good! Hope you get to try some more samples from them!
