Pillsbury Doesn't Do it Best

Gladstone vs. Fonuts

It was the best of donuts, it was the worst of donuts. It was the age of fried, it was the age of baked. This is the Tale of Two Donuts. For this story, I am going to play the role of Charles Dickens' Sydney Carton, who placed little value on his own existence. I did, at first place little value on Gladstone Donut House a run down little donut shop in Pasadena. Instead of believeing my husband who shall for this blog be named Charles Darnay (a character of notable wisdom and honor) I insisted we also drive to Beverly Grove to get Fonuts for last night's desserts. Let the tale begin. So Charles, I mean Ron, had a property showing yesterday on Lake Street in Pasadena and he asked me if I wanted to tag along. Hell yes I did. because you know what's right down the street? The Hat! And because I love him and we do that stuff for each other. Anyway, we stopped off for a donut at Gladstone Donut House and we enter this no-frills, and I mean no-frills at all shop and I see these huge Apple Fritters, Bear Claws, Glazed, and Buttermilk Maple. I cannot even explain what you get for $.80. Yes eighty cents! Donuts are crispy in all the right places and perfectly fried. They are not too sweet, huge and quite possibly some of the best donuts I've ever eaten. So I do have to say thank you to my husband, Charles Darnay. Gladstone Donut House 1332 N. Lake Avenue, Pasadena. (626) 794-3867

 

 

Now fast forward about two hours, to Beverly Grove, home of the hipster Fonuts. We were going to someone's house for dinner. Because I didn't have enough donuts during the day, and against the sage advice of my better half, we stopped in at Fonuts on West 3rd. Here's where my attitude adjustment problem comes in. Enter the charming little shop and get swept up in the old-fashioned stove that holds coffee stirrers, etc and the gleaming glass cases full of, you guessed it...fonuts. What exactly is a fonut you ask? Fonuts is the creation of pastry chef Waylynn Lucas and gluten-free baker Nancy Truman. Fonuts are baked or steamed, never fried donuts, which explains a lot. Gluten-free and Vegan options aboud but are made with almond flour, so for those with nut allergies, that leaves you out. So here's the deal with the flavors: Gluten Free: Peanut Butter Chocolate, Vanilla Latte, Banana Cinnamon, Chocolate Hazelnut, Pumpkin, Lemon, Coconut Passion Fruit, Chocolate Coconut, Chocolate With Sprinkles, and Banana. ($3) Vegan: Peanut Butter Chocolate, Vanilla Latte, Banana Cinnamon, Lemon, Coconut Passion Fruit, Chocolate Coconut. ($3) For Gluten-Meat-Eaters choose from Vanilla Cream Filled, Red Velvet, Strawberry Buttermilk, Rosemary Olive Oil, Salted Caramel. Maple Bacon, Glazed, Cinnamon Sugar, Blueberry Earl Gray or Chorizo Cheddar ($3). Okay, here's the lowdown. You cannot bake or steam a donut. It is wrong on so many levels. Donuts are not meant to be healthy food. And I still don't get Olive Oil donuts! Why? When do you eat olive oil with a donut? Never. Donuts were also a big flop at the dinner party. Frostings were sickeningly sweet and cake was dry. Now get on over to Gladstone's and stick with the real thing! Fonuts 8104 West 3rd Street, Los Angeles, (323) 592-3075. Open M-Th 7:30 am- 8 pm Sa 8 am- 10 pm Su 8 am- 8 pm
