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!

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!

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.
