In a world full of Dunkin’ Donuts and Krispy Kreme’s…it’s a donut eat doughnut world out there. Everyone having their own claim to fame. Everyone having their own gimmick.
So, what makes Donut Joe’s, located in Pelham, Alabama, so special? I knew it had to be something when moments after pulling into the lot, it was filled and people were already streaming in. It’s a crazy, fast-paced, donut world inside and you gotta be quick to get in on the sugary treats that await.
The best way to sample anything at Donut Joe’s is to make your own dozen. It’s simple. You just look through there selection and choose what looks good, sounds good, or just looks interesting. I even treated myself to an entire order of their yeast donut holes. Yes…an entire serving. They melted the instant they hit my tongue. That’s some good donuts! My roommate tried one of their cinnamon twists, which I took a sample from and, hit-the-mark delicious.
I’m not the biggest donut eater. While I love them, they tend to be overly sweet. While these donuts, yes, do come frosted, glazed, and packed with sugar…they really are good. In fact, on top of my order of a dozen donut holes, I also found one of the most delicious donuts I have ever had the chance to eat. The blueberry donut – which was like eating a blueberry muffin…but taken to the next delicious level. I wish we had more of them waiting downstairs with what remained of the leftovers.
If you are needing a delicious breakfast treat, and just happen to be passing through the Birmingham, Alabama area, take the time to sing by Donut Joe’s. Treat yourself. Indulge a little. You only live once…might as well enjoy every cream-filled, glazed, frosted, cakey, delicious bite.
If you’re going for donuts…do it right. Eat at Joe’s. You won’t be disappointed. Just on a bit of a sugar rush. But every bite is worth it. Every sugary bite.
