Dallas Receives Recognition as Top Doughnut City in America, Boasting a Wide Array of Shops and Major Brands, according to an Audacy article. They say,
“In celebration of National Doughnut Day over the weekend, The Washington Post shared a new report naming the best cities in America for doughnuts. While many expected to see East Coast staples like Boston or Hartford, Connecticut on the list, it was Dallas that was honored for its density and diversity of doughnut shops. According to Dallas Morning News, Dallas is home to at least one location of the five biggest doughnut brands in America: Dunkin’, Daylight Donuts, Krispy Kreme, Shipley Do-Nuts and Donut Palace.”
Dallas Excels in Craft Doughnut Scene, Highlighting Hypnotic as the City’s Premier Craft Donut Shop. Providence and Salt Lake City Also Recognized as Doughnut Capitals, according to a Dallas Morning News article. They say,
“Dallas also boasts plenty of homegrown craft doughnut shops. The Post gave a shout-out to Hypnotic, which bills itself as Dallas’ first and best craft donut shop. It sells doughnuts like the Canadian Healthcare, a long john with maple icing, topped with a strip of bacon for $3.50, and the Jenny’s Evil Elvis, a yeast-raised doughnut topped with peanut butter, bacon, banana and honey for $4.
In addition to Dallas, the Post crowned two other capitals: Providence, R.I., for doughnut density and Salt Lake City for diversity.
To analyze doughnut density and diversity, the newspaper turned to Yelp, which shared all the doughnut shop listings on the review site. It then grouped stores with the same name and calculated the most common doughnut shop in groups of census tracts around the country.”
