Picture this: you’re standing in line at your favourite coffee shop. The sugar craving has hit you like a big truck. You’re itching for a delicious baked good, with fruity flavours. You finally reach the front of the line, but you’re stuck.
Should you get a fritter or a donut?
What seems like a very simple decision (fritter, obvs) is actually complex. They’re both delicious baked goods and the perfect accompaniment to a steaming cup of coffee on a cold Canadian morning. They’re both so, so easy to grab a box of and bring to your coworkers (you’ll be the most popular person in the office!)
But there are some facts which differentiate our favourite baked goods. We’re here to help you make an informed decision. You should totally pick a fritter over a donut, but that’s simply our biased opinion.
Over 10 million donuts are made in the US each year. You don’t want to be one of the crowd. Pick a fritter!
Fritters are versatile. Have you heard of a donut that you can make out of zucchinis? Me neither. Fritters are like chameleons. Pick a fritter.
Donuts are just round. Or square. But always boring. Have you seen donuts that come in beautiful heart shapes? You should totally pick a fritter.
Did you know there are different versions of fritters in different cultures? While in Canada we love our classic sweet fritters, lots of cultures around the world don’t have quite the same sweet tooth. For example, Indian pakoras and Japanese tempura dishes are all forms of fritters! Sweet, right? Pick a fritter!
You can have fritters for all of your meals! The variety of sweet and savoury fritters means you can have one of our sweet fritters for breakfast, corn fritters for lunch, and tempura for dinner! I know I’m sold. Pick a fritter.
The sheer variety and exciting nature of fritters means it’s absolutely the right choice to have with your morning coffee. Stop by our store in St. Thomas or visit us at the Western Fair Farmers Market on Saturday mornings, 8 am – 3 pm for your fritter fix!
