Damn, the Amish sure can make doughnuts! Apple fritters tend to be dense, heavy, and super sugary but this fritter was airy, light, and so flavorful. I don’t know how they mix their dough, but it’s SO good! I think I’m in love, NOMS!

Omg, this was probably one of THE best donuts I’ve ever had! They’re simple, hand made, and perfect. I don’t usually finish my donuts but I couldn’t stop eating these. They were so light and the dough had an elastic texture and tasted great. I could probably eat an entire box! The donut line gets pretty long but it moves fairly quickly.

Mmm, this donut was delicious! I loved the texture of the dough and the custard filling was also yummy. I will say that I though there was too much brûléed sugar on top, but that’s just me. I just there’d be just as much if it was a real creme brûlée.

This donut was really moist, but I really wasn’t into it. I guess I was in the mood for a regular fried donut and not the cake variety. I liked the look of it though.

This place sucked and so did their donuts! Our service guy was a little bitch and didn’t like getting questions regarding the donuts. That’s your job and I don’t think that 2 questions about what the donuts are called is excessive. I took a couple bites of each donut and threw the rest away. These lame donuts weren’t worth the calories!

When your friend and even the hotel bartender tell you that Voodoo is OVERRATED, you should really listen! Unfortunately, I fell for the hype and got deservedly burned.

The donuts were a huge letdown. The dough was nothing special and actually unevenly cooked, and the frostings were at a sweetness level only fit for little kids. There is absolutely no finesse with these donuts and are definitely not worth the atrocious wait and disinterested service. Fail!
