We were on our way home from delivering a Wedding Cake to Lynchburg, Va when we came across Donut World in Greensboro, NC. I read a couple reviews on Urbanspoon and after reading a user post that Donut World had authentic California style apple fritters I knew the trip home would require a short detour.
The amount of donut choices made my brain hurt and were more than enough to bring shame to every Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme in NC.
There were so many Apple Fritters I didn’t know what to do with myself so I ordered four… for myself :)
But I couldn’t resist the sweet sounds of the Maple Bacon donut or the Bear Claw… so I got those too :) The Maple Bacon was surprisingly not my favorite which is odd given my lifelong devotion to all things bacon related. It was a really good donut but out of the three types of donuts I got it was my third favorite. Holding up the #2 spot was the Cali Style Traditional Bear Claw. I haven’t been able to find a proper Bear Claw since leaving my home state and I was reliving many childhood memories as I had apple goo running down my mouth.
The real star of the show was of course.. the Apple Fritter.
Oh Apple Fritter… how I lay in bed awake remembering every one of your crunchy, chewy, apple, fried greatness bites. In California the Apple Fritters are HUGE, have chunks of apple, and are easily the best donut in the shop. On the east coast apple fritters don’t even deserve to be referred to with the same name.
