For my first post, I will pay homage to small batch donut shop Union Square Donuts in my hometown of Somerville, MA. It only felt right.
Never in my life have I had a donut quite like this. My life has changed forever!
The donut pictured above is the Bacon Maple- sweet and salty DELICIOUSNESS. I have died and gone to heaven. The donut is fairly large and provided me with 2 servings (or 3). A mini bundt cake, if you will. Toss your left over piece in the microwave for a few seconds and it will melt. in. your. mouth.
That’s just one of their many flavors. There’s bourbon caramel, vanilla bean, strawberry, chocolate marble, and toasted coconut to name a few. I’ve also tried the bourbon caramel and toasted coconut; equally as delicious.
I highly suggest taking a trip to 20 Bow St in Union Square and trying one of these legendary donuts yourself. They’re open Thursday-Friday 7 AM- 1PM and Saturday- Sunday 7AM- 3PM. Beginning Tuesday, December 2nd they will open 6 days a week. If you can’t make it in during those days or hours, don’t fret! Union Square Donuts has various “pop-up” locations around the Boston area that you can find on their website http://www.unionsquaredonuts.com/ so we may all get a taste!
