Travels with Blondie: I Forgot About the Donuts!

Krispy Kreme
After my post went up last week about my adventures in San Francisco, I realized that I totally forgot to tell you all about the doughnuts! How can I be so silly?! The doughnut theme started when my beautiful cousin specifically asked that some Peter Pan goodies be in my carry-on. In return for that, she took me to the best place ever.

The Krispy Kreme/In-N-Out in Daly City as we were on our way to Pacifica for some grand coastal viewing! Can life get any better than eating a cheeseburger animal-style and following it up with doughnuts? I think not!

Dynamo Donuts
I also stopped by Dynamo Donuts where I faced one of the harder decisions of my life! How do you pick just one or two? Gah!

Bacon Doughnut
I picked the maple glazed bacon apple and doughnut bread pudding. The bread pudding was good with a fantastic crunchy top crust and custard-like interior, but it could have won even more points were they able to warm it up a bit. As for the bacon doughnut, I have fortunately been spoiled by Flex Donuts' bacon cruller. Don't get me wrong, it's good; the bacon is still crunchy, the glaze isn't too sweet. If I hadn't had so many great doughnuts in New York in the past year, I'd been thoroughly impressed. But I have had fluffy yeast doughnuts, and that bacon cruller. I won't trek across town for Dynamo, but if I were in the neighborhood again, I'd definitely stop by.
