I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Entenmann’s – they get the job done. If that “job” is – I need some sugar to get me going or I will pass out right here and now. This morning I wanted to grab a coffee and doughnut from Dunkin’ Donuts before heading to the grocery store to do some food shopping. With G strapped to me and J in the stroller, I was none too happy when I was greeted with a long line. I decided to just skip Dunkin and head straight to the grocery store.
In the baked goods aisle, I was confronted with a box of my favorite doughnuts ever. Long before Dough and Doughnut Plant, Entenmann’s Devil’s Food Crumb Doughnuts were my own personal crack. In the past, I would buy a box slowly make my way through the whole thing in one day – justifying each and every bite. As a way to demonstrate my self control (I was quite proud of this too, I should add) I skipped the Devil’s Food doughnuts and bought the variety pack instead. I like the regular crumb and the glazed. My husband will eat the chocolate ones and eventually something will happen with the plain.
I love Dough’s doughnuts just plain with nothing on so the fact that I leave the Entenmann’s plain to just rot tells you something about their base. It is a spongy tasteless mess. Their only saving grace is that they are usually pretty soft – I can’t imagine they are all that fresh so I’m sure the massive amounts of sugar are to thank for their seemingly endless shelf-life.
At the time of writing, I have eaten two. These are the kind of doughnuts that I eat and feel less than happy about. Not like Dough’s apple jam filled doughnuts or Doughnut Plant’s tres leches. This is more like – and addict who couldn’t control himself and is now sad.
Too much? Maybe I should have bought the Devil’s Food ones and just accepted fate?
I also bought a pre-mixed Starbucks that was HORRIBLE. Maybe we just forget today and start fresh tomorrow.
