Spiced Chai, Hibiscus, Apricot Habanero, Blueberry Mascarpone, Maple-Candied Bacon and Sea Salt Caramel are all fancy flavors that prove the crazier the donut the better. Donuts aren’t just for breakfast anymore they are making a reemergence on the culinary scene as the latest confectionary food craze. They have shed their hum drum traditional glazed or sprinkled existence and have taken on new shapes and flavors that push the most creative of epicurean boundaries.

Haute Living did some taste testing and found 5 of the top most delicious and original gourmet donuts around Dallas.

1 GLAZED DONUT WORKS

Specializing in handcrafted donuts in small batches Glazed Donut Works are known to sell out, so you may want to get there early. Located in Deep Ellum they offer creatively topped and filled donuts, from a savory grilled cheese with applewood bacon sandwich to their newest item, an ice cream sandwich filled with vanilla bean bourbon ice cream. With an ever-changing menu you can indulge in as many flavors as you like. They've even offered a gourmet donut and beer pairing flight including their creme de menthe, lemon whiskey balls, irish car bomb and matcha green tea donuts.

2 DONUT KITCHEN

Located in McKinney, the Donut Kitchen is a family-owned restaurant that specializes in a lot more than the sweet confection it's name after but it's the donuts that have exceeded the expectations of their patrons. They feature a long list of more than 14 flavors with toppings of crumbled Oreos, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, chocolate chips, caramelized bacon and M&M's. This is not the spot to watch your waistline. Swimsuit season may just have to be put on hold!
