If you live in Los Angeles, you've probably driven by Yum Yum Donuts about a thousand times heading up Highland or La Cienega by the 10. You see a happy face licking his lips and wonder…just how Yum Yum are Yum Yum Donuts really? Probably pretty gross..
Actually, surprisingly Yummy! This weekend friends delighted us by bringing over a large box of beautiful doughnuts and, as is my job, I had one of each. Over all, the doughnuts are fresh and fluffy, with the exception of the old-fashion glazed, which was appropriately saturated, sweet, and dense. I would have enjoyed custard filling in the maple glazed bar (which is an all-time fave from childhood) and I felt a bit ill after eating them, which made me want to dock points. Alas, I decided that would be unfair since it's not the doughnuts' fault that I ate so many.
So congrats to the Yum Yum Donut chain! You earned yourself a solid 4-Cherry rating :-9
