When I was younger, my 2 surfing buddies and I use to surf for 3-4hrs at a time. I don't know how we did it but I guess we were in a lot better shape than I am now, because I can't surf for more than 1.5hrs without getting tired. After 4hrs of surfing, we would be starving and it was our little tradition to go in search of some yummy treats to satisfy our hunger. Our favorite place to go was to a donut shop. We would seriously eat a dozen donuts. No joke. If it wasn't donuts, it would be the Dairy Queen for a blizzard, or sometimes we would even go into BJ's and order a pizookie (a large cookie topped with vanilla bean ice cream). One each. And we would finish the whole thing.
Now that we are older (and wiser), we are a lot more conscious of what we cram into our bodies but our love for donuts will never disappear. Ever. We were reminded of this fact yesterday when we discovered The Donuttery, a little donut shop in Huntington Beach, after a little morning surf session at Bolsa Chica. OMG, they had the best donuts, with flavors like blueberry, strawberry, pumpkin, and red velvet. There were only 3 of us but we bought ourselves a dozen (don't worry, we didn't eat them all ourselves but brougth some home for loved ones!). My favorite is the blueberry glazed donut- it was so soft and moist inside. Just writing this I wish I had one now.
This is definitely a donut shop that we will be stopping again and again after surfing. I guess some traditions never die. If you're in and around Huntington Beach, I highly recommend stopping at The Donuttery. Do you have a favorite donut store in your area?
