No 73: Cherry Crunch Donut from Dandee Donut Factory

You never forget your first. My first Dandee Donut was cherry crunch, and it was love at first cakey bite. I'd had other flings, but no donut could ever make you feel as good as a Dandee. Before my first Dandee, I'd been punished with heartburn from Dunkin Donuts. My tastebuds had been tricked by greasy Krispy Kremes. But this new relationship was built to last. Covered in a fine layer of glaze and flecked with crunchy pink bits, my cherry crunch donut was the color of love. It was light, fluffy, and always baked fresh daily. Unlike other donut romances, I could find no fault in my newfound snack...and neither will you.
