Have you heard about Shipley's Do-Nuts? If you live in the south you probably have. Apparently, they have been around for 76 years.
When I travel I really like to eat things that are local and that I can not get in my home state. Like I told you before, my folks have lived in Texas for 16 years and somehow I hadn't heard of Shipley's before. I think my family was holding out on me.
My sister ran to the closest Shipley's with my daughter on a beautiful (but cold) Sunday morning and my daughter was enthralled! She thought that the store was pretty and that the selection was vast.
The person that helped them, handed her a bag of donut holes for free. She was very excited to open the bag when she arrived back at her Grandparents house because the girl has never seen a do-nut hole before!
I've eaten a lot of do-nuts in my day. They are one of my favorite treats and many of my childhood memories revolve around these wonderful dough pastries. Shipley's Do-Nuts are the closest to the do-nuts of my childhood that I have ever come across.
I was so happy that my kids were able to experience them and now we have a do-nut memory from Grandma and Grandpa's house.
Do you have a favorite donut shop from your state?
If you would like to try Shipley's you can find their locations on their website. They are also on facebook and twitter.
Disclaimer: I was not paid to write about Shipley's Do-Nuts, but if given the chance I would blog for donuts.
