Is there anything better in the morning than the dynamic duo of coffee and a donut? Honey Fluff Donuts at 6566 Joliet Road in Countryside is a throwback to the old fashioned donut shop.
Honey Fluff is reminiscent of the Dunkin’ Donuts I used to frequent in the seventies. This family owned and operated store is simple and unpretentious with a cozy, little, bubble gum pink counter.
Honey Fluff’s version of the deep fried concoction will bring a smile to your face. If you’re a maple frosting fan, you’ll fall in love with this donut after your first bite. It gently dissolves in your mouth with a sweet and fragrant maple syrup flavor.
Their strawberry and raspberry jelly-filled donut is piped in a granulated sugar puff of dough. Moist and delicious, it is the definitive jelly donut. Rather unusual, the Cherry Donut is a cake donut which is dotted with bright red specks throughout the dough. And the taste? Just like a cherry lollipop.
The Double Chocolate donut is a marriage between cake and donut. The ultimate chocolate lover’s comfort food and the dieter's nemesis.
Not a common flavor, the Sour Cream, caught my eye. Its exterior is rough around the edges and the taste is that of a deep-fried pound cake. Too sweet for my tastebuds, it is an awesome selection for the hard-core sweet tooth.
