There weren’t any doughnuts in Dazed and Confused, but surely Wooderson would think Glazed and Infused doughnuts are cool.
After all, the doughnut shops, set to open in mid-April will be doing doughnuts all right.
Handmade hourly so you never have to bite into anything stale when you’re … dazed, these doughnuts taste like the standards turned up to eleven, man. Sure, there’s basics like Apple Fritter and Old Fashioned, but they taste even more appley and old fashioned. These aren’t your parents’ doughnuts.
That’s because chefs Tom Culleeney and Christine McCabe have taken care to make doughnuts from whole, natural, and local ingredients when they can. And while a doughnut is still a fried ball of dough, Glazed and Infused doughnuts are trans-fat free, so you won’t feel quite so guilty when indulging.
It’d be cool if you indulged. The PB&J is a jelly-filled, peanut butter-glazed doughnut that truly tastes like those carefree days of childhood. For a more adult doughnut, try the Crème Brûlée – it’s filled with a custard that’s just sweet enough and covered with a crunchy melted sugar shell.
If you like lemon a lot Luscious Lemon is for you. The Red Velvet even has cream cheese frosting.
The most striking, so far, is the Maple Bacon Long John. It’s a big one – you might wnat to share it with a friend, or two – covered in maple glaze and an entire slice of maple bacon. It’s delicious, and the bacon doesn’t suffer from being either too chewy or too crunchy. It is not fried in a high school parking lot.
Glazed and Infused is planning to keep these, as well as Vanilla Bean Glazed, Vanilla Cake Chocolate Frosted, and the Bacon “Sticky Bun” Cruller in its rotation as well as having at least one new seasonally-inspired doughnut each week.
Since doughnuts go so well with coffee, there will be a unique Intelligentsia blend available only at Glazed and Infused locations.
Glazed and Infuzed is all right, all right, all right.
