REVIEW: Revolution Doughnuts, Decatur
I can’t even say Revolution Doughnuts without hearing The Beatles playing Revolution in my head. But, Revolution Doughnuts is changing the world, one doughnut at a time. For starters, the doughnuts are handmade using fresh ingredients. Their website says that you’ll never find “buckets of artificial goop in our kitchen”. Speaking of their website, they’ve got a cool looking site with plenty of information, just in case you need convincing that these are some of the best doughnuts you can shove in your mouth.
Angel was kind enough to swing by Revolution Doughnuts on the way to work and picked us up a couple of boxes for the office to share. The reaction from our staff? “Holy cow! Best d*mn doughnuts ever!” and more than one “<expletive deleted>, thanks for blowing my diet today!”. Yeah, you’re welcome.
Revolution Doughnuts are all natural with zero trans-fat and made by hand from scratch. Still, they’re not sugar-free but they are worth a few walks around the building to compensate for any guilt associated with this culinary delight.
They have a wide variety of flavors but its all centered around two base style of doughnuts. First, they have a traditional yeast doughnut that is similar to what you think of when you get Krispy Kreme, Publix, or one of the other of this type. Of course, from the first bite you’ll taste the difference with Revolution Doughnuts. The other style is a cake donut. As you might surmise, this is dense like cake. Its a little different, but oh so good.
On the weekends, customers are lined up out the door at Revolution Doughnuts so plan accordingly. It’s no wonder. When we have doughnuts in the morning, we normally have some left over. Today? They never saw the light of the afternoon sun. You should be able to read A LOT into that. Guten appetit!
