How could I resist not taking a break to peruse the shelves at The Sweet Shop in my hood of the Upper East Side in NYC when all this candy goodness was beckoning me? It’s like I had the good and bad angels sitting on my shoulders, and the bad angel whispered evil thoughts and sweet nothings into my ear. Guess which one won out? The good angel was kicked to the curb as I headed inside this tiny pocket of candy wonderland.

Must have been working as it was pretty crowded when I was there. Why not? It’s doughnuts! Sweet sugar bombs of perfection! Continue reading Sweet sugar bombs of perfection! Doughnut Plant NYC!
