Members of The Lancer staff went to E T Donuts, Fresh Donuts, Donut Depot and Foster’s Donuts. After long bouts of careful consideration, Donut Depot has been determined the best out of the four. These thick donuts have a pleasant moist quality and the perfect balance between density and fluffiness. The donut dough is sweet, but not too sweet, and the glaze and toppings add a delicious touch. This donut shop has a wide selection, with classic selections like glazed raised donuts, cake donuts with chocolate sprinkles and cinnamon rolls, but also has unique donut selections like bacon maple bars and raised donuts with cereal toppings. There is a seating area inside of Donut Depot where you can enjoy these tasty creations. Donut Depot is owned by sophomore Noeloni Ramiscal’s family; they have owned the shop for 20 years.
