Ah, donuts. How we adore these little fried, iced, jelly-filled, morsels of delight. Do you have a favorite? For some, it's the classic glazed donut we can't get over, and often, these most basic of options are often used as the measure of how good a donut shop is--perhaps because of the simplicity?

Do you have a favorite kind of donut? What is your "go-to?"

Some people love chocolate glazed (though I tend to like these the least in most places I go.) Others want lemon, raspberry, or cream-filled varieties. Personally, my all-time favorite is the French Cruller, though I struggle to find many of these in our area. And we can't forget the most recent passion loved by so many--the cronut.
