You guys know I’ve been on a little bit of a doughnut kick recently and so I felt like I needed to post about Astro’s. Also, it’s July 4th and what’s more American than some fried deliciousness??
Astro’s serves doughnuts AND fried chicken…um what? Where have you been my whole life??
We came here one morning and skipped the fried chicken this time and stuck with the doughnuts. We ended up with this delicious box of (from top left to right) strawberry rhubarb, cherry pie, PBJ and the bottom row (left to right) is creme brûlée, vanilla glazed, and birthday cake.
The strawberry rhubarb and vanilla glaze were both really chewy, soft doughnuts. The vanilla glaze was sweet, mild, and mellow while the strawberry rhubarb had a zing from the strawberry glaze.
The cherry pie had some crunch from the sugar sprinkles on the outside and the filling was tangy and slightly sweet. Just like cherry pie!
The PBJ tasted exactly like a PBJ, but it was probably my least favorite because the jelly filling had made it a little soggy blargh!
The birthday cake was our only cake doughnut and it was a chocolate base. This tasted like a really yummy, rich chocolate cake. It was soft and the cake was slightly sweet, but the glaze is what really sugared it up! The bit of frosting piped in the middle was a perfect texture contrast since it was light and fluffy while the doughnut was pretty dense.
Do you have Astro’s in your state? What’s your favorite doughnut from them??
