Which doughnut?

The time of Valentines romance is upon us, and yes, I do have a luscious man to whisk me away to an expensive restaurant with a bunch of roses... But for those of you who actually care that you will be single on this, the day of cheap tacky cards and Quality Streets, your only hope is to turn your attention to those comforts in life which will not let you down. No ladies, not diamonds, but food. Yummy, sugary comfort food. Chocolate aside, what better to gorge on, than the one, the only, the doughnut?!

The time of Valentines romance is upon us, and yes, I do have a luscious man to whisk me away to an expensive restaurant with a bunch of roses... But for those of you who actually care that you will be single on this, the day of cheap tacky cards and Quality Streets, your only hope is to turn your attention to those comforts in life which will not let you down. No ladies, not diamonds, but food. Yummy, sugary comfort food. Chocolate aside, what better to gorge on, than the one, the only, the doughnut?!

Marks & Spencer, four for £1
Not only is the value of this doughnut bumper pack salivatingly exciting in itself, but the doughnuts are of the highest quality. The cheapest you'll find them in town, these little packs of doughy goodness are freshly baked at Marks and Sparks every day, and have a luscious filling of raspberry jam and a generous sprinkling of sugar! So tempting in fact, that as my boyfriend went to the kitchen in the middle of the night for a glass of water; he had shoved one in his greedy gob before he even knew what he was doing. These doughnuts are definitely worthy of the walk to town, but keep them away from people with mouths who aren't afraid to use them.

Woolworths Cafe, 99p
We've said it before, and we'll say it again, Woolworths Cafe makes you want to die! Sitting amid the crowds of stale looking old ladies and rowdy children gorging on fruit pastilles while playing with Ken dolls I contemplate my neon pink doughnut with sprinkles, which probably contains enough nuclear material to heat the entire City of York. When tentatively tasted, it's actually not too bad, but again, I don't really mind eating plastic synthetic shit. I wonder what this is really doing to my digestive system. Not recommended to those of you with weak bowels.

The Baker's Oven, 45p
Not as bargainous as I would have hoped as this establishment lies opposite the illustrious M&S. But still, the Baker's Oven pulls its weight yet again. Not only are the doughnuts yummytastic, but this building is also the centre of opportunity for all aspects of baked products. Service with a smile compliments what is arguably the best bakery in town, bar Betty's of course!

Cooplands Bakers, 49p
Though technically not a doughnut, the "yumyum" is made of what can only be described as doughnut pastry, just fried for longer. With lemony drizzle icing, it is quite nice, but only quite. The sheer amount of grease on these odd baked products makes optimum consumption a chore rather than a pleasure. For comfort food, steer clear of these evil things, for they will only make you feel sick.
