I love that they make (or at least top) the doughnuts to order. I chose chocolate and bacon, and OMG, they put a lot of bacon on top! SO delicious!

Coconut doughnut – Glory Doughnuts

Glory Doughnuts, Frederick MD

This was the last donut that they had, lol! I arrived a cold morning and apparently I was late because they were pretty much sold out already. I was glad that had one left! Anyway this donut was pretty good. It wasn’t my favorite since there was just too much coconut for my taste. I would have liked to try another flavor to get a sense of their style of donut-making.

I chose this donut because of the beautiful, pink huckleberry glaze. I also love lemon flavored pastries so this donut was a winner all around! Dynamo Donuts makes some mighty fine donuts for sure!

PB & J – Glazed Gourmet Doughnuts

That’s right… a peanut butter and jelly doughnut!
Glazed Gourmet Doughnuts, Charleston SC

Ugh, this donut was more sugar than anything else! The glaze was pretty thick and everything just tasted super sweet. I was missing the bold peanut butter flavor that I assumed this donut would deliver and the strawberry jelly just added to the sugar overdose. I’m sad…

Sorry, the donut got smushed a little bit in the to-go bag but that didn’t affect the taste, hehe! The flavor was really good, but I’m not sure that I was a fan of the donut texture. It was on the doughy, dense side. I like donuts that are light, fluffy, and taste like they’ve been cooked all the way through.
