any excuse to eat a doughnut


Sunday morning was the Rhode Island Donut Tasting Event, produced and planned by Party Grandma.

Aunt Nancy drove.


Thank you, Aunt Nancy.

First stop was a local little coffee shop that sold the state’s famous Allie’s Donuts.  We bought six of them, all different kinds, but assumed we’d be testing chocolate, glazed and cake donuts from several shops.

Then our Wild Card:  the pastry shelf of Cumberland Farms gas station.

On to Dunkin Donuts:


We didn’t choose our chill, but we did buy an assortment of Dunkin Donuts, Son #1’s personal favorite.


You can tell the Funny Grandson was excited.

Then we headed south to Westerly to hit Honey Dew.  The Texans had never tried these donuts before, so the excitement really ramped up.




And then we headed home, where the FG arranged the boxes for a photo shoot.


And now it was time to cut up little samples, taste them and vote.  The results?

In the Glazed Doughnut Category, Allie’s was the winner but Honey Dew was a very close second.

Cake Doughnut:  surprise winner was Cumberland Farms with its blueberry cake offering.

Chocolate:  Allie’s won in the chocolate (cake) category, but Honey Dew had a delicious alternative.

Poor Dunkin was never even close.
