Yesterday was the last day of my summer school class (Calc II... a real pain!). Before the final, some friends and I decided that we would celebrate the end of class by going to Randy's Doughnuts (the big doughnut off the 405 in Inglewood) to get some fresh, right out of the oven chocolate and maple bars. These suckers come out at 3:30am, and although I usually don't stay up that late, especially to go eat doughnuts, we wanted to experience what a fresh chocolate bar tastes like... So damn the time!

When we arrived around 3:30am with a gallon of milk in the cooler, we were giddy with delight. We contained ourselves and got a mixed dozen for appitzers. The mixed dozen consisted of honey-wheats, chocalate raised, glazed, and apple crepes, all a few hours old (except for the glazed which was fresh out of the oven) and very, very tastey. They tasted way better than Krispy Kreme, not as cloying with a much better firmness. They were SO good. I have never had doughnuts that great before.

But we came for the main course, and the main course consisted of FRESH maple and chocolate bars. How fresh you ask? So fresh that the chocolate and maple frosting was still liquidy and gooy on the hot bar. They could not have been more than 15 minutes old MAX.

OHHH what a doughnut! Words can't do these things justice! Warm, soft bar with hot, gooey chocolate and maple. Perfect firmness. And the chocolate and maple frosting... so rich yet not overwhelming.

As I ate my hot chocolate bar in the seedy parking light, cup of cold milk in one hand, hot delicious choclate bar in the other, I admired the enormous moonlit doughnut that sits on top of Randy's and though I am the luckest person on earth. If you really want to experience a fresh, amazing doughnut, I highly sugggest toughing it out and going to Randy's at 3:30am. It might be insanely late, but the doughnuts were insanely good!

Oh what a night!
