The Donut Standings

Also titled, the last donut review you'll see for a while. Am I giving up on the yummy pastries?! Ha. Not a chance. I'm just running out of local places to review and ten weeks is a good time to end it. I plan on reviewing other shops when I come across them. I can't NOT try new donuts. It would be crime.

I had a lot of fun trying out all of these new to me places. A couple of things I've learned along the way:
Most shops are either really good at cake donuts or yeast donuts, but typically not both.
A lot of shops are still cash only.
There are a LOT of good donuts in St. Louis. I can never move from this area for this reason alone.

I took the top three scores from each group and did an overall score. Let's see who's the best!
