Blue Star Doughnuts Gets Panned By The Kids

Perhaps a bit too twee for the children.
The other night we had high-end fancy-pants doughnuts. Although they tasted good, the kids declared that they preferred the regular doughnuts, meaning those with such flavors as Boston Cream, Jelly, Chocolate Glazed, Apple Fritter, and the like.

The Blue Star doughnuts that we sampled included Pistachio Cheesecake, Crème Brûlée, Passion Fruit and Almond, and some dark chocolate things.

Service was slow (for a regular doughnut shop, but not if you compare it to Voodoo Doughnuts). The cashier earnestly asked me how I was while handing me the credit card slip to sign -- it was one of those where the customer needed to write in the total, supposedly prompting me to tip him.

The nine-year-old said, "This is the Salt and Straw of doughnuts." Indeed.

I'm proud of the kids that they were able to identity an over-produced food item. Sometimes a doughnut should just be a....doughnut.

The artisan doughnut-maker carefully works his magic.
