Any time I enter a donut shop, I immediately turn into a four-year-old kid. I run up to the display case, press my nose against the glass, and start judging each donut on its size, shape, fluffiness, and glaze.
At first, Mom only bought me the small kiddie-sized donuts or a few donut holes. (Probably had something to do with minimizing little kids’ sugar rushes…) Partway through grade school, she let me pick out the larger chocolate bars and twists. Then I discovered the cinnamon sugar crumb donuts in junior high and refused to order anything else!
After a six-year donut draught, I finally walked into a new store in a different town and stood at the front counter, completely mesmerized. While the crunchy old-fashioneds with their funny double-ring shape started calling my name, the chocolate sprinkle donuts shouted “Amy!” even louder.
I didn’t care that they were small and meant for toddlers… When I ordered my donut and nibbled on those bright rainbow sprinkles, I felt just like a kid again—and I enjoyed every single bite!
So… Can you guess my new favorite donut?
