We were originally told that Gibson's offered between 48 and 56 different donuts. The number, it turns out, is around 35, which is still A LOT of donuts.
So then the question moved to how to handle such a task. Gibson's bagged each donut individually. We decided to number the bags and then take a picture and go from there. Except Michael took his first few donuts out of the bag and ate half of them before he took a picture. And then I flat-out skipped one of mine. Best laid plans and all that.
Vanilla filled — Over the top yeast donut filled to the gills with a super-sweet vanilla icing.
Custard filled — Rich rich rich, and oh so good.
Vanilla sprinkle — this one is pretty as a picture. A basic yeast with a vanilla glaze and topped with colorful sprinkles. Looks like a child's present.
Crumb cake — if the buttermilk donut is Gibson's Beyonce, then the crumb cake would be Solange. It's bold and spicy, complex and a little weird.
Plain old fashioned — cake donut, simplicity and utter perfection.
Oreo — a donut that tastes exactly like an Oreo? Is that even legal?
Caramel iced — a yeast donut with a delicate caramel glaze. Pretty dang good.
Raspberry filled — an expertly executed version of this classic donut
Chocolate/ world's fair — cake donut, with a hint of orange flavor with a chocolate glaze. Tastes so sophisticated!
Coconut — they didn't skimp on the coconut for this one, no sir!
Chocolate iced — the tippy top ideal of a donut.
Old fashioned — cake donut with a glaze. Ain't nothing wrong with that at all.
Chocolate old fashioned — see above, except with a chocolate glaze. So good!
