Where in Michigan can I get a Great Donut?

There are not many things better than a fresh donut. What an amazing treat! My family loves when we have a Sunday donut breakfast. I stroll up to my local Dunkin Donuts and order some frosty with sprinkles for my son (and sometimes me) and I get one of those giant-frosted coffee Princess Leia hair-spiral donuts. But while Dunkin is okay, they are not the best. So where in Michigan can I get a great DONUT???

But first, maybe let’s get those taste buds firing by talking even more about The Donut. Today is National Donut Day according to Nationaltoay.com. The history of the day goes back to 1938. The day was established as a way to honor Salvation Army members who aided soldiers during World War I.

The history of the donut changes as more evidence pops up, but it goes back centuries. According to toriavey.com, in ancient Rome and Greece, they would fry pastries of dough and cover them with honey and fish (New flavor Dunkin?).

The best story is about Captain Hanson Gregor, whose mom made him donuts for his voyages. So one of the stories was in 1847. During a very rough storm, to keep his hands on the wheel and eat donuts, he impaled them on the spokes of the wheel. And thus, the donut HOLE was created.

Well however and wherever donuts came about, we cannot get enough of them. Even Homer Simpson was placed in Hell to be forced to eat donuts forever and it only made him happier! What a great episode! Any of the Treehouse of Horror episodes are amazing!

Where can we get some good donuts around here? Here are some places that have got on the top of some lists.
