The Southwestern Florida Donut Adventure Part #1





Yummies Donuts
5005 State Road 776
Venice, Florida

Saturday afternoon, 2:00 PM - Blognut arrives at Yummies excited to enjoy a mid-afternoon donut, only to find Yummies closed. It turns out Yummies operates under the assumption that the Southwestern Florida early-bird contingent, who generally sit down to dinner at 4:30 PM, also prefer their breakfast at unusually early hours. They're open from 4:00 AM (!) until noon.

Sunday morning, 10:00 AM - Blognut returns to Yummies (now more accustomed to the local culinary time difference). After thoroughly enjoying the establishment's exterior, with its ever-so-Floridian pastel pink and yellow siding, we enter the tiny building. Right away we can tell that Yummies is a top-notch donut retailer. The staff is exceedingly friendly and pleased to help with our many donut inquries. We order a lot of donuts.

Probably the most pleasing/intriguing donut behind the counter is what Yummies calls their "Honey-glazed Blossom." These crescent shape delicacies are essentially fritters sweetened with a slighty yellow honey glaze, and are defininetly one of the finest Nuts we've sunken our teeth into. The honey glaze puts the Blossom into a Fritter-class of its own. Blognut also tried the unsweetened blossom, the apple fritter, a maple-nut roll, an eclair, and the plain glazed, all of which we would highly recommend.




















After talking with the employees, Blognut discovered that Yummies has been at the same Venice location for more than 15 years since the owner moved it there from Michigan. We were more than happy with our Yummies experience and will definitely return next time we are in Southwestern Florida.


Donut Scores:

Honey-glazed Blossom - 9.4
Plain glazed - 9. 2
Apple fritter - 8.3
Maple-nut roll - 8.5
Unsweetened Blossom - 8. 1 (not for the sweet-tooth)
Eclair - 7.9

The closing paragraph tells all of it in my opinion. I have to say that I agree with it, and probably the most great thing about it is that you left it open ended…this shows that you're ready to attract in new and different opinions and that you're ultimately very interested to see individuals getting concerned within the subject. So, any various opinions?
