On the heels of my article about the 10 Best Places to Get a Donut in Minneapolis, last week I happened to be relatively close to Glam Doll Donuts in South Minneapolis. As a brief reminder, Glam Doll Donuts is ranked as the BEST place to get a donut in the Twin Cities according to users of the geo-location app, Foursquare.10 Best Places To Get A Donut in Minneapolis
Although there is a donut menu, as depicted in the photo below, I simply stared and drooled at the oodles and oodles of donuts that were screaming out to me, “Take me home. Please eat me.” Yet all the donuts looks so pretty. I didn’t know which donuts to order, so I ordered a baker’s dozen, which is 12 +1, equalling 13. When I saw the pink box the donuts came in, it reminded me a lot of Voodoo Donuts in Portland, Oregon, which has always been one of my most favorite donut shops in the United States. That and Thomas Donuts in Panama City Beach, Florida. And yes, if you haven’t guessed by now. I like donuts.
So there I was sitting down at a table with a brand new box of pink donuts and I was doing my usual thing: Vine’ing, Instagramming, Tweeting.I always chuckle when I am in an establishment and the business will be favoring or retweeting. After about five minutes of finishing half a donut and a cup of coffee, I headed over to my office to treat my colleagues with these Glam Doll Donuts. Here are some of the following donuts we tried, including several vegan donuts:
- Sugar Kane – a classic glazed donut
- Showgirl – maple icing long john and some thick bacon
- Calendar Girl – salted caramel with chocolate
- Femme Fatale – fresh raspberry curd filling with a vanilla icing (nice touch with the heart on top)
- Chart Topper – peanut butter and sriracha (yes, sriracha)
At first, many of my colleagues were skeptical of the vegan donuts, but if I hadn’t told them they were eating a vegan donut, they would have never have known. By far, the favorite in the office was the Chart Topper, as the blend of sweet, nutty and spice was really, really nice. After 12 donuts miraculously disappeared, I had one Showgirl to take home with me and eventhough I don’t dig on swine, my lads found her quite divine.
