You have got to love a place with a giant donut on the roof! One of my dreams is to have a donut on my roof. I would love to have one just like this or in NEON would be okay too.
Now for the donuts!
Suit Up! With pinstripes worthy of the New York Yankees(yankees.com) this donut could also be at home on Wall St.(www.wallstreetmoneyneversleeps.com). This honey glazed donut with the chocolate pinstripes came from the WaWa at 668 S Salisbury Blvd(410-677-0384). I have always been partial to the vanilla creme. It is sooo sweet! Check out your local WaWa at (www.wawa.com). You have to move quick to get your pick of a WaWa donut- they empty out fast.
EAT HAPPY! And don't tell my Dad I compared his Yankees to a creme puff donut!

This Dunkin Donuts Apple Crumb has everything you could ask for in a donut. The soft yeast donut is fresh and chewy. The vanilla icing adds a touch of sweetness. The apple filling is just slightly spicy, and the little crumbles on top add a crunch to each bite. This donut is from my local "DD" at 908 S Salisbury Blvd(410-749-5999), but if you check this guy out at www.dunkindonuts.com you will find it carries 460 calories, and worth every one!

Yesterday's French Cruller was sooo good, I had to have another cruller today! These curly beauties are from Wingnuts at 1207 Mt. Hermon Rd(410-546-4780). Wingnuts has become my "go to" donut shop because they always have a great selection of fresh made donuts! Sweet!
The word cruller is said to come from the Dutch word "crulle" or "crullen" and means "to curl". If I get another "cruller craving" in the next months, that might mean making a road trip to the Pennsylvania Dutch Country(www.padutchcountry.com) to to try out some of the originals.

DeVage's at 748 E. Main St in Salisbury(410-334-2200) is right around the corner from my house. Not only do they make sweet cake donuts, but they make great cheese steaks, and subs, too! The location is a Salisbury landmark and was for many years, The Polar Bar. This was one of the original soda fountains in Salisbury and my Dad and his friends would hang out there when he was in High School. It feels like Arnold's from Happy Days!(www.tv.com/happy-days)
My good friend Vince Guiliano is celebrating his birthday today, June 22nd. Vince's Dad, Mr. Nick(Mr. G), was the long-time Industrial Arts and Drivers Ed instructor at Wi-Hi.(www.wcboe.org/schools/wihi). Mr G made the original Polar Bar wood sign that used to hang above the counter, so I thought a DeVage's/ Polar Bar donut would be the perfect tribute to Vince on his birthday!

If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, this is how I choose to eat mine. This soft yeast raised donut has a cinnamon sugar coating and spiced apple filling. There are even little pieces of apple in there. Dunkin Donuts never disappoints, so check out your local "DD" at(dunkindonuts.com). This donut came from my local "DD" at 908 S Salisbury Blvd(410-749-5999). Eat Happy!
Happy Birthday to Kellee Cannon June 19th! You and Erica can stop by anytime for a donut!

Are these not the cutest things you have ever seen?! I got a surprise from my friend and co-worker, Cindy C., yesterday when she handed me a bag with these little guys inside. I didn't even know Starbucks offered donuts. The chocolate is a double fudge brownie donut and they call the pink iced their "birthday cake" donut. Shelby has already called "dibs" on that one! These little guys are only about 130 calories each which is about 100 calories less than the average donut, but I think I could eat about 50 of them given the opportunity. Visit your local Starbucks to try these great minis or check out (starbucks.com) for more info. Thanks Cindy for this treat! Eat Happy!

The Old Fashioned Donut is also called a sour creme donut, because sour creme is used in the dough. It adds a little bite to this cake donut. As you can see from the picture, one of the best things about an old fashioned is all of the nooks and crannies that develop on top while the donut is frying. These little valleys work perfectly to catch the glaze, so you get extra sweetness in each bite. This donut also makes a great dunking donut. Wawa even offers this very donut as a dunking stick, shaped just right for dunking. Genius! Stop by your local Wawa for one of these donuts and some great coffee too! Look for your Wawa at (wawa.com).

Nothing says summer like lemon! This donut is the sister to Krispy Kreme's lemon cake(see Donut Day 10) and part of their summer of "Lovin' Lemon." This is a yeast raised donut with a tasty lemon chiffon filling and a little belly button of lemon on top. Sweet and refreshing! These lemon lovelies are only available for a limited time, so you better get out and try them both soon! Check these and other donuts out at krispykreme.com! And Eat Happy!

Aah, the naked donut. So many possibilities. You can eat these just as they are, put your favorite topping on, or dunk in your favorite hot beverage. I love to dunk these lovelies in my hot coffee. The donut has to be just hard enough to absorb the liquid, but not fall apart in your coffee. Griff's Bakery & Donut Shop in the Hickman shopping center on Rt1 in Bethany Beach(302-539-8879) gets these just right! Griff's not only makes donuts, but you can find all types of baked goods from danish and bear claws to apple turnovers. Not a bad choice in the place.
Cindy Lou had never been a dunker before, but it is hard to say no to these "brown bettys". These donuts drink up just the right amount of coffee.
