Tomorrow is one of the sweetest days of the year - it's National Donut Day!
Utah is one of the fastest growing areas for new donut shops so we asked Benjamin Lee, Donut Critic, to help us find the three new must-try places:
- Ono’s Malasadas - Provo, UT
Utah’s newest malasada shop has ties to Hawaii! Malasada is a fried type of doughnut. These delicious balls of dough are made from a Hawaiian recipe and have a delicious shell with a spongy inside. Ben's favorite is Sugared and Drizzled but some love it filled with Nutella or Haupia.
- Big Dipper - Park City, UT
This will make for a unique visit - it’s a sandwich shop that also serves donuts and fritters and the donuts are HUGE!
- Parson’s Bakery - Bountiful, UT
Parson’s isn’t a new shop but they often get more attention from their cakes, cookies, danishes, and other desserts. Ben said the maple bacon donuts are on point with a sweet and salty balance. They are also one of the only shops in Utah to make crullers which is reason enough to visit!
