I am the first to admit, and you can read for yourself in my past blog, A Tale of Two Donuts, that I am not above visiting two donut shops in one day. I'm not. And I did. Again. Today. (I
am never going to Farmer's Market without stopping at Bob's Coffee & Donuts...ever!) On our way to Farmer's Market, my husband insisted we make a stop at Blinkie's. Now most people who live in the area have made a quick dash into Blinkie's
on Topanga Canyon once or twice before, as I have too. But have you tried their crinkies yet, have you? Forget cronuts and all of the hifalutin expensive wannabees because Blinkie's nails it with their delicious selection of $2.75 crinkies. What is a crinkie,
you ask? A crinkie is a combination of a croissant and a donut. A cronut is actually a trademark of the Dominique Ansel Bakery in NYC. Choose from different flavors and you will be in crinkie heaven. These are some of the best I've had. While I'd
rate the regular donuts at Blinkie's about a 7 on a scale of 1 to 10, the cronuts are a perfect 10. I mean a Bo Derek 10! Today I had the chocolate and vanilla. This was the most perfect chewy, flakey, moist, buttery cronut I have tasted. We are going
back next weekend to try some others! Service is very friendly too. Cash only. 4884 Topanga Canyon Blvd. Woodland Hills (818) 884-4456. Hours: Sun-Mon: 6:00 a.m.- 12 noon.
Crinkies, Glazed Bars, buttermilk glazed donuts.
