In my previous blog post, I talked about summer bucket lists and recently I got to check off one of the items on my personal bucket list by visiting my high school friend, Jen, in her adoptive home of Amherst, Massachusetts. It was my first time visiting this Pioneer Valley town and I completely fell in love with its quaint urban setting,literary history, and prestigious academia. Since it was National Doughnut Day during one of the days I was there, Jen and I hit up Amherst’s fun and creative doughnut shop, Glazed! I apologize in advance if you are participating in Junkfood-Free June!
Glazed Doughnut Shop produces delicious doughnuts with a variety of glazes and unique toppings. They are made by hand everyday, nice and fresh for you. Though I don’t have any dietary needs, I like that this place also carries an assortment of gluten and vegan-free doughnuts. If you have a minimum order of $10 you can have your doughnuts delivered for a $2 charge!
Here are some of their flavors I brought home for my family and friends- cookies ’n cream, peanut butter, caramel, and coconut. Some of their other signature items include orange ginger, maple bacon, and lemon raspberry.
Don't tell me you're not drooling!
“Owner/operators Nick and Keren Rhodes grew up in Amherst, Ma. In fact we are Amherst High School sweethearts. After living in New York, and Conneticut, a stint in medical school, several businesses, and two children later, we find ourselves back in our hometown sharing what we love. High quality, delicious, gourmet doughnuts.”This fall I will be a senior in college and I still have no idea what my dream job is. There are just too many things that excite me and make me curious. A question I’ve grown to hate lately is “what do you want to be when you grow up?” because you're asked that question from a young age, and everybody always expects you to answer it with a type of job, and it just shatters people with this idea that your worth and identity is measured solely through a career. We need to take ourselves as seriously as the act of eating a donut. I really like that Nick and Keren Rhodes are the type of people who believe in the idea that our lives can be multi-purpose because I don't believe that each person has a one, true calling. To quote Oscar Wilde, "between the optimist and the pessimist, the difference is droll.The optimist sees the doughnut; the pessimist the hole!"
