Move over Cronut…. The Cruffin is here!
Today is one of my favorite days of the year – National Donut Day! Who knew that a bunch of dough could make so many people…. so happy! Because my Beautiful People, who doesn’t love a good donut? We have done our homework and, through a lot of research and even more taste tests, we have found the top two donut shops in all of Los Angeles! Let’s get started!
Let’s start with our newest find… Kettle Glazed Donuts. In the Hills of Hollywood and having some of the best tasting donuts that have ever graced my lips, this is the place that brought me my very first CRUFFIN.
What’s a cruffin you ask? Well if a croissant married a muffin and had a baby…. it would be a cruffin. It’s a creamy filled cinnamon muffin with the tastes of croissant, muffin and donut all rolled into one. When I ordered mine through PostMates last week, they were completely sold out at 9am so we waited while they made a full brand new batch JUST for us. When they arrived at my home they were still hot and smelled like a dream!
Other notable flavors from Kettle Glazed:
The S’more, which is insanely good filled with marshmallow madness!
The Maple Glazed topped with bacon…. wow my mouth will never be the same!
The Peanut Butter… with a peanut butter taffy filling… OMG!
They also have vegan donuts (also sold out early… cause this place is that good!!). The list goes on…. every single thing that came from Kettle was so good that I couldn’t even make it through the shoot without stuffing my mouth!
On to…. California Donuts. If it’s good enough for Beyonce…. It’s good enough for us! California Donuts has what has been described as having the most beautiful donuts in the country and we can tell you that it’s true! Where else can you get a panda-faced donut? Hello Kitty? And have it taste amazing?! Where else can you order letter donuts that spell out anything your hearts desires? My son Steven actually asked his girlfriend to prom this year through donuts! They spelled out in full donut size – a message to Miss Jillian (the Gf) – and, of course, when the message is presented surrounded by rose petals the only thing she could have said was yes!
There you go my most fabulous Peeps… The two best Donut Shops Los Angeles has to offer and a few more reasons to celebrate National Donut Day!!
Big Sweet Donut Kisses!
I didn’t even know there was such a day!
Well HALLELUJAH! Lets celebrate with a cronut!
I am going to Krispy Kreme’s for lunch!
I think donuts are the only food that hasn’t really ever increased in price!
Who would have thought to mix croissants, donuts and muffins? BRILLIANT!
Kettle Glazed Donuts…how can you go wrong?
I think I just gained 3 pounds reading this blog but it is so worth it!
These cruffin flavors are to die for.
I haven’t heard of California Donuts but I will have to venture out to the “Mean Streets” of LA to get my own taste!
I love the prom idea! Takes “Promposals” to a whole new level.
WOW! I’ll take one of each, please!!!
I had no idea there was a national donut day! You just made MY day! These are one of my favorite treats. I will have to take my family to the local donut shop this evening.
The S’mores one sounds like marshmallow heaven. That would be my must try.
I’m not in the Los Angeles area, and now I’m really sad about it. These look and sound so yummy!
Ok, now that would be worth breaking my diet for! After all, it is a National day!
Wow! I’ve never heard of this, cruffin, but now I’m intrigued.
My favorites are donut holes. Best finger snack you can get your hands on!
I have some great donut recipes to make at home. I can get really creative with this.
I’ve actually tried a cruffin and O.M.G.!!! They are so worth every calorie.
YUM! YUM! YUM!! Is it bad to have donuts for breakfast?!?
I love the decorated ones. Very creative. So nice you almost don’t want to eat them. ALMOST! 😉
