I finally caved this week. Sure, I’ve been stopping by my local Dunkin Donuts almost daily to snag a large ice coffee since the chain stared using the super-star-spangled plastic cups! But I never gave in to the donut craze. In general, I’m not a big donut guy. Sure I’ll eat one if at gunpoint but I’d rather save my calories for something better like pizza or beer.
But this week, well, it’s been a bad week. And I was there at Dunkin Donuts. And I was hungry. And I heard rumors about the Captain America donut. And… well… yeah. I tried one. And it was beyond glorious!
First off, merely telling the woman behind the counter that, “I’ll take 4 Captain Americas, please” was worth the trip! But the donut itself? Oh, man. It’s star shaped which is neat. It has white icing on it, which is yummy. Colored sprinkles add another layer of nomness. But bite into it and… [SPOILER ALERT!] you’ll find super, gooey red jelly goodness! It may sound simple in description, but a star-spangled, jelly-filled, glazed donut is the Super-Soldier of pastries.
