As some of you may already know, I am married to a man who is obsessed with donuts. You may have read his blog, The Donut Hunter. If not, today is the perfect day to do so and find the perfect donut in your area! We had the chance to check out the new Glaze Artisan Donut location in Wayne, New Jersey.
You may have started to see the Italian Rainbow donut circulating around Facebook, Thrillist or maybe even Good Morning America. Usually there is a picture of this larger than life version of the famous Italian cookie with comments professing people’s undying love. The first donut I had the pleasure of stuffing my face with was the coveted Italian Rainbow donut. It had all the flavor of the cookie but ten fold. I love that almond marzipan taste, sweet jelly, and thick coated chocolate exterior. Usually, you are getting a small bite when eating the cookie with this donut you are immersed in all you love about that cookie.
Okay, if I haven’t convinced you to run there on that donut alone I am sure there is something else in their never-ending list of unique donut flavors. Everyday the donuts are baked fresh and there are usually about 30 flavors offered on any given day. The bakers get their super early to craft the donuts without any high fructose corn syrup and chemicals. The menu is so extensive it literally blows my mind. Yes, they have the Cronut, which by the way was better than I expected, but that’s not even the most creative one on the list. How about a Calzonut, or a Glazed Rye donut? Or maybe you are more of a Ring-ding ling, Matcha Green Tea, or Twix type.
Glaze has aspirations of moving towards local ingredients and partnering with other businesses in the area to create some more inspiring donut treats. The owner and Glaze team are committed to coming up with not only great donuts, but unique events as well as flavors. This store is one to watch and be excited about! Oh, and make sure to pick up some organic coffee while you are at it!
