A Mighty Craving for Mighty O

Last night, my roommate and I had the most interesting conversation via text message:
Allison: Can we get donuts this week? I seriously can't stop thinking about it haha
Me: Hahaha I was thinking of getting donuts tomorrow morning at Mighty O!
Allison: Can I get a chocolate glazed & sprinkles?
Me: Chocolate glazed and sprinkles, got it!
(This, my friends, is what true friendships are made of!)

I was serious. This morning I woke up at 6:30, got dressed, and drove to Mighty O Donuts. When you have a donut craving, or better yet, when you AND your roommate have a donut craving, especially one that lasts for more than a week, you'd better do something about it, and fast!

This was actually my first time going to Mighty O Donuts. I've held out on going there for a few reasons, the main reason being that their donuts are VEGAN. Yes, you heard me. VEGAN. Have you ever heard of a vegan donut before? Or even the words vegan and donut in the same sentence? You can already sense my skepticism here. Another reason that has eluded me from visiting Mighty O...I'm loyal to Top Pot. There, I said it. Just one whiff of their old fashioned donuts and I'm sold. And, they're NOT vegan. However, after reading the several reviews, (and they were good reviews), I figured it wouldn't hurt to try the Mighty O.


Just how mighty were these donuts? Well, they were surprisingly, mighty good! You couldn't even tell that they were vegan! I must note, however that these donuts are on the cakey side. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of cakey donuts, as a lot of them tend to be very dry and crumbly, but not these donuts. Nice and crispy on the outside, surprisingly soft on the inside. Think of it as a denser cupcake. With a crispy exterior. Definitely worth waking up at 6:30 in the morning.


I got me & Allison four donuts; two for today, and two more just in case our donut craving decides to hang around until tomorrow. This morning, I had the French Toast donut. Sweet, cinnamon-y, maple-y goodness. I already have my eye on the Cinnamon Sugar donut for tomorrow.

Now, the question is, who's donut reigns supreme? Top Pot or Mighty O? It's a little hard to say at this point. But I will say, I'm sensing a donut challenge in the near future.
