National Donut Day: Who Has Idaho’s Best?
Friday 6/3 is National Donut day. There are so many places where you can score free donuts, but you don't want to waste time on an inferior donut...You want only the best, so who has the best donuts in Idaho? Let the arguments begin. Here's the list for the best donuts in Idaho:
I haven’t traveled the entire state, so I’m limited to the Treasure Valley. I really like Krispy Kreme plain donuts hot off the cooker…delicious, but I also like old fashioned donuts from Country Donuts..they are melt in your mouth delicious, Apple Fritters from Pastry Perfection are amazing and of course I couldn’t write about amazing donuts in Idaho without mentioning the Bacon Maple bars from DK Donuts, but the best donuts in Idaho according to Thrillist come from (drum roll please) Guru Donuts in downtown Boise.
Thrillist put together their best donut list for each state. In Idaho, they’re big believers in Guru Donuts in Boise. According to their experts here’s why Guru Donuts co-owners Kevin and Angel Moran are to be admired...“The Moran's weren’t serious bakers until they realized Boise needed a gourmet donut shop, and since no one else stepped up, they asked a neighbor to teach them the art of frying dough.” That’s right, Idaho’s best donuts come from people who didn’t even know how to make donuts themselves until they asked their neighbor.
And now that neighbor can take pride in knowing that they are indirectly responsible for creations such as the Charlie Brown, a pumpkin donut with a root beer glaze, among others.
I also love that Guru donates left overs every day to non profit agencies.
There are plenty of places that serve amazing donuts in Idaho. Only in your state has a list of the top 6 donut shops in Idaho and not surprisingly, Guru is also at the top of that list.
