Donuts are my favorite food group. In Connecticut, we thankfully do not have a shortage of donut places to choose from — no matter what part of the state you are from. If you’re looking to celebrate National Donut Day tomorrow, here are some places to check out, and you know, participate:
Whitney Donut, Hamden CT: Let’s start with my hometown. Whitney Donut, located on Whitney Avenue, has some of the freshest donuts that I’ve ever tasted. They are classic to a T, and have the traditional flavors such as glazed, vanilla, strawberry and chocolate frosted, and Boston Creme. But, the cruellers are definitely worth checking out. In addition to donuts, Whitney Donut offers a variety of breakfast and lunch choices, but in all honesty, their donuts are a good enough reason to make the trip.
Neil’s Donuts, Wallingford and Middletown CT: Ahh, the famous Neil’s. Their slogan is that they have the best donuts around. And, that they do. You can check out my post about them here for further details about them, but they are such a great place to spend National Donut Day.
Donut Crazy, Various: With locations in Shelton, Westport, New Haven, West Hartford, Branford, and Stratford, Donut Crazy has a ton of great locations to choose from. Donut Crazy has many traditional donuts (glazed, sprinkled, etc), but they are known for their crazy donuts. A crazy donut is a donut that has a flavor that you would never imagine. Some of my favorites include S’mores, Nutella, and Cookie Monster. They are worth every single calorie, NGL. And, they also change their crazy menu every single month. It is definitely worth checking out their various locations!
Heavenly Donuts, Derby and Seymour: Last but certainly not least, we are taking it old school with Heavenly Donuts. With donuts that are so light and fluffy, you feel as if you are eating a cloud. They are that good. They have over 35 flavors to choose from, so there is definitely something for everyone.
