I didn’t know I was in for a surprise when I went to Merritt’s Bakery this morning, I just knew I was going to get a tasty donut. Upon entering the bakery and picking my number I was about to resort to my routine of getting one of their cinnamon rolls. Instead, my eyes were drawn to some colorful signs describing their selection of “new fun flavor” donuts. They had a rainbow of colored icings which you wouldn’t normally find on a donut – green, pink, red, and purple. Outrageous flavors such as Hibiscus and Green Tea were the reason for these colors.
I decided to give the green tea donut a go and happily walked out the door with curious thoughts in my mind. I hurried home and tried the donut. It tasted mostly like sugary icing with small hints of green tea flavor. The green tea complimented the sweet dough of the donut but I was really yearning for more infused flavor. Oh well, I will be back to try the other fun flavors soon – and of course, I’ll report the sweet low down.
