In honour of National Donut Day, which was held on June 3rd (for those of you that missed it), I decided to venture forth and find me a donut. Of course, I’m not overly fond of Tim Horton‘s anymore, so I went to the next best place; Starbucks. Granted, I had never had a donut from Starbucks, so I had no idea if it was going to be good. I did know going into this adventure, that it was likely to be overpriced.
Anyway, I walked to the mall as it holds the closest Starbucks and bought the only donut they had left: an apple fritter. In the grand scheme of things, this has always been my least favourite donut. But I had to celebrate National Donut Day. It would be sacrilegious of me not to (I’m not sure how this warrants as sacrilege, but somehow that’s how it feels). I also picked up a delicious tall vanilla soy latte.
After my purchase, I also may have sauntered over to the liquor store to pick up a delicious 6-pack of beer. Mmm, beer. Truly, I was in full Homer Simpson mode. While there were many beers that I could have purchased, I opted for a mixed 6 pack of Mill Street beers.
The best part of my beer-y purchase was the check out process, as indicated by the following tweet:
At almost 36 years old, I’m still amazed when this happens. Of course, the teller was far more embarrassed about this than I was.
Having purchased my beer, I returned home to enjoy my wares. Given that the sun was shining and the weather was pretty much perfect, I sat outside to take in all the glory that National Donut Day had to offer. I brought with me a bottle of Mill Street Organic. It seemed a good pairing with an apple fritter. The fritter itself was okay. As I mentioned, I’m not the biggest fan of them on the best of days. But in honour of the occasion I stuck it out and ate the entire thing. The following tweets and pics surely describe the experience best.
Honestly, the fritter was just a bit too sweet for me, as my stomach made me fully aware. Thankfully I had a trusty beer to save me. And if that didn’t work, surely two beers would. 🙂
Anyway, I hope you had a most awesome National Donut Day.
