Week 9 Donut Review: Olde Towne Donuts in Fenton

Fenton, Missouri is home to the next shop in donut series. Olde Towne Donuts has been open for business for nearly ten years. They keep it simple here: donuts and pastries with seasonal Christmas cookies. The staff is incredibly friendly and is certainly part of the reason patrons make return visits.

This custard donut looks almost too perfect to eat. I said ALMOST. Besides, it would be a crime to not eat the donut.
My score 2.5 stars out of 5: The chocolate icing is pretty good. It's not very rich, but it's not super sugary. It's a nice happy medium. The dough is also right in the middle. It wasn't too dense or too light with a very good taste. The custard filling was decent, but a little on the skimpy side.

Oh. My. Goodness. I might have fallen in love with this cake donut.
My score 4 stars out of 5: The icing was perfect. It wasn't super sweet and had a great vanilla taste. There was a TON of coconut which I just loved. The cake itself was very moist with a hint of nutmeg. A very interesting flavor. I didn't hate it, but didn't think it meshed well with the coconut. Still, this was a very tasty treat.

Look at the golden plate of goodness. 
My score 3.5 stars out of 5: This glazed donut was covered perfectly. The glaze had a great taste. The dough was on the denser side and not too sweet.

The apple fritter is last, but not least.
His score 2 stars out of 5: The glaze was very good. The dough was a bit dense and we couldn't really taste any apple in the fritter. It wasn't that this didn't taste good. It was more like a donut than a fritter. It was very yummy though!

If you find yourself doing some shopping in the Fenton, be sure to drop in to Olde Towne Donuts and try a nibble. They are open from 8pm until 1:30pm the next day! They are ready for you whenever a craving should strike you.
