I had too much coffee this morning, which made me shaky and in turn, left me craving something sugary. So I headed out to the Mayberry Shoppes near Centennial Road, to Syd's Bakery. Donuts are my weakness. I can never just have one and I try to avoid them because they aren't the healthiest things in the world. Once at Syd's, I picked out a holiday themed sprinkle donut and an apple fritter.

Embarrassingly, I consumed the sprinkled variety on the drive back home and then had the apple one while I looked over emails. Yes, today I had a donut and a fritter for lunch. (Estimated caloric intake: roughly 1,000 calories)....yikes!
The sprinkled one was exactly how I expected it to be and the icing was delicious. But the fritter left something to be desired. It was a little dry inside and it was really light on apple flavor. It didn't stop me from eating it all, though, so obviously it wasn't horrendously terrible.
I first visited Syd's back in April or May, when I moved to Sylvania and while I can't remember what I picked up back then, going there reminded me of moving to the city. Today, it still looks the same. Recently, I heard they offer donut cakes, which is apparently a newer trend in the baking world.
