Usually when I think about the kinds of tasty treats I’d like to indulge in, gas station food is the farthest thing from my mind. This Sunday morning, however, I couldn’t drive myself to the gas station fast enough. No, I didn’t have a mental breakdown and suddenly decide to suck down a bag of pork rinds; I had something a little more upscale in mind. So I headed on over to the BP station on the corner of US 41 and Moorings for some Peace, Love, and Little Donuts. Yup, believe it or not, they are producing fresh, on-site, cake donuts with some pretty gourmet toppings. The donuts are only about 3 inches in diameter, so indulging in 2 (or maybe 6) of these bad-boys isn’t a diet deal-breaker… but they should come packaged with a warning sticker alerting consumers to their addictive nature.
Boasting toppings like s’mores, raspberry lemonade, and chocolate pretzel, you can see how difficult it would be to choose just one or two. However, I feel compelled to tell you about my personal favorite, the bacon-topped, maple-frosted donut. Now, I know many of you are out there thinking, “Bacon topped donut, that’s weird.” But, c’mon, you know how yummy it is when your bacon and pancake syrup accidentally collide on your breakfast plate. Well, here it’s no accident! It hits all the right notes of that salty/sweet combination that I adore.
