Donut lovers, get thee to Terre Haute!

Last weekend, Kurt and I went to Square Donuts on Wabash Avenue. While it doesn't look like much on the outside, inside you'll find some of the best donuts Indiana has to offer. With their light dough and wonderfully flavored frosting, Square Donuts puts the national chains to shame.

We sampled the basic yeast as well as the chocolate, raspberry, and peanut butter cremes. The yeast was a bit sweet for my taste, but anyone who likes Krispy Kremes should love it. All of the cremes feature a yeast donut with white creme filling and a flavored frosting. The chocolate was good but nothing out of the ordinary. The real gems were the raspberry which had pieces of fruit in the pink frosting and a wonderful fresh raspberry taste and the peanut butter with its super creamy peanut butter fudge frosting.

One caveat: While the store claims to be open until mid-afternoon, they actually shut down when they run out of donuts. You'll want to get there early for the best selection. Another option is to place an order to be sure you'll get your favorite flavors. I had my eye on the chocolate bavarian which the customer in front of me snapped up. Next time, we'll call ahead and order one along with our peanut butter cremes.





You'll note the peanut butter creme isn't pictured. That's because someone (Kurt!) devoured it before I could get my camera out of the bag.
