We Ate ALL of Gibson's Donuts, Part II

We were originally told that Gibson's offered between 48 and 56 different donuts. The number, it turns out, is around 35, which is still A LOT of donuts.

So then the question moved to how to handle such a task. Gibson's bagged each donut individually. We decided to number the bags and then take a picture and go from there. Except Michael took his first few donuts out of the bag and ate half of them before he took a picture. And then I flat-out skipped one of mine. Best laid plans and all that.

Vanilla filled — Over the top yeast donut filled to the gills with a super-sweet vanilla icing.

Custard filled — Rich rich rich, and oh so good.

Vanilla sprinkle — this one is pretty as a picture. A basic yeast with a vanilla glaze and topped with colorful sprinkles. Looks like a child's present.

Crumb cake — if the buttermilk donut is Gibson's Beyonce, then the crumb cake would be Solange. It's bold and spicy, complex and a little weird.

Plain old fashioned — cake donut, simplicity and utter perfection.

Oreo — a donut that tastes exactly like an Oreo? Is that even legal?

Caramel iced — a yeast donut with a delicate caramel glaze. Pretty dang good.

Chocolate/ world's fair — cake donut, with a hint of orange flavor with a chocolate glaze. Tastes so sophisticated!

Coconut — they didn't skimp on the coconut for this one, no sir!

Chocolate iced — the tippy top ideal of a donut.

Old fashioned — cake donut with a glaze. Ain't nothing wrong with that at all.
