We have them here, I didn't think they had migrated so far north.

Wife just brought some home yesterday. Pretty good stuff, though I guess I was supposed to warm it up first for the super good flavor.

I happened to be over by Old Willets and 454/347 so I figured I would stop by and check out what the fuss was all about. If I were going to a friend's house for a BBQ or coffee, I would bring some. They were tasty, especially when warm out of the box.

They use vanilla cake for the donut and then you get to pick the dips and toppings. As bizarre as it sounds, the maple bacon was delicious warm. It was the donut form of a pancake and bacon breakfast. Lemon with raspberry drizzle was very good; the blueberry iced was a surprising favorite -- my oldest does not care for blueberries and he remarked that the blueberry icing tasted like fresh blueberries. They were his favorite. The big shocker was the chocolate iced -- I am a severe chocoholic and the chocolate was, in my opinion, meh.

They just opened their first location at the intersection of 111 and 454. I heard that the line was out the door and up the shopping center opening weekend. On a local FB group, one woman wrote that her husband waited 90 minutes!

Yes, warm is the best way to do it. The box suggested a quick trip in the microwave to get the donut warm.

Do they make them there in the store? Because here they make them to order so they are always warm when you get them. You can watch the whole assembly of them being made from start to finish.

I remember growing up in Queens, and REAL bakeries made fresh everything, every day. Boy, I miss those days.

There was a crowd, so I couldn't get a very close look at the whole process. I noticed the plain donuts coming out of a long, enclosed conveyor into a large, rotating wok-shaped disk. From there, the employees would scoop up the donuts, place them in a box and then head to the dipping area.

It was like a giant Easy Bake, only I couldn't see the start of the contraption.
