So a donut shop is a donut shop is a donut shop right? Donuts from this mom and pop shop is the same as this other one. Well, in this case, no. First of all, what kind of donut shop opens only at 9PM? Kind of sketchy right? On weekends, this Disneyland neighbor opens at 9PM, all the way through the morning till before noon. What kind of donut shop is this? Maybe it’s all a front and it actually is a secret CIA hub, or maybe some kind of crack dealing operation. No, probably not. Though, the crack dealing operation accusation is only half false.
So what are all these people in cars, and people standing around waiting for? They all get one thing, the blueberry donut. Yes, I am one of many who made it an event to wait over 2 hours for donuts. Before you start to judge me, I would like to say that “everyone was doing it”.
It all started with a tip I got saying that the drive through window is faster. All lies! I waited and waited, I was basically stuck. Not by any means of a disabled car or a road block, but all because of me and my stubbornness. 45 minutes in, I couldn’t leave. I could have just left, cut my losses and be comfortable at home. I am the type of person who finishes what I started. In the end of it all, it was all worth it.
There is no way I am waiting this long and just getting 1 dozen. I got 2 dozen and a croissant sandwich. Yeah, random, I got a sandwich too. I wanted to get more than just donuts. This was nothing compared to the car behind us who ordered 5 dozen. Yes, if you are thinking crack, we are on the same page.
You get your donuts, in a pizza box of all things. It is warm and straight right out of the fryer. I took a bite, and all the stresses of waiting were gone. It was so crispy on the outside and cakey on the inside. The donut wasn’t overly sweet and the blueberry flavor was amazing. This tops all other donuts and is in a class of its own. The best donut I ever had? Maybe. Even leftover days later were nice after a little trip to the toaster oven. Amazing I tell you. Amazing.
Some people might be turned off by the long lines and wait. I agree, it’s idiotic and ridiculous to wait that long for donuts. But I promise, after the seemingly never ending wait, there is a glorious donut(s) with your name on it.
