Hot Tamale Donut – O’Doodle Doo’s Donuts
I’m a fiend for unique food offerings, so when editorial photographer Cristopher Schafer IG’d a photo of a dozen epic ass donuts a while other day I made it my life mission to check the place out. I browsed the shop’s website and saw a listing for a “hot” handmade donut, I knew what had to be done. One weekend I managed to carve out some time in the early AM to drop into O’Doodle Doo’s Donuts in Suffolk, VA to see if I could tame this beast. I’ll save the full workup of their offerings for a later post, but I just had to spill about the Hot Tamale donut I picked up.
As the name infers, this piece of chocolatey heaven has a peppery bite throughout; habanero peppers are used in this thing underneath a chocolate glaze to set your tongue a-tingle. It’s a slow, building burn that is sure to wake you up at bite number one… Office prank anyone?!
Stay tuned, this shop has tons of epicness within their doors and YGET is going to make sure you get an insider’s peek soon!
