Nosh Pit’s Afternoon Snack Break

We interrupt this workday to tantalize you with some delicious local treat. Today: a doughnut.

One down, twenty to go.

Today’s snack: Caramelly fried cake from Frost Doughnuts.

Have you ever known a food less polarizing than the doughnut? I mean, who doesn’t like doughnuts? They’re fried dough, for crying out, often excessively coated in sugar and/or frosting.

Seattle Met is particularly fond of this doughnut here. It’s a salted caramel variety from Mill Creek bakery Frost Doughnuts (which will soon open two new shops, possibly both in Seattle proper). When Nosh Pit piggies ate their way through 17 kinds of rings from rollers all over town, the salty-sweet combination garnered this confection runaway praise.

Are you groaning and eye-rolling at the mention of another salted caramel something something? Justifiable, the flavor is beyond overexposed, but that doesn’t make it any less delicious.
