Donut Plant - 2 donuts, 1 chance

Visiting the Donut Plant, and I've only got one shot. If you could only pick 2 donuts, which two would they be? First time there, heard about it for years, won't get another chance for many months.
I'm thinking Coconut Creme, and Tres Leches. Your two?
Do they offer the CC everyday?
The Tres Leches is great. I had the Bluebery a couple of times recently and really enjoyed it. They'd also made Lavender but were already sold out of the yeast variety. I wanted the Meyer Lemon but they weren't offering them either day I visited.
Are you going alone? I'd probably do one cake and one yeast.
The Blackout is a necessity. A must have. I usually don't mess with the yeast donuts, but the coconut cream is pretty good. I haven't had a bad cake donut. Most recently the chocolate covered banana was worth getting several. If they have raspberry or strawberry glazed cake I would go for that. Tres leches is cool but sweet overload- too much for me. The lavender was worth a try but if you have 1 shot choose something else.
I went today and sample the following... Blackout, Tres Leches, Banana Pecan, and Peanut butter with blueberry jelly.
The blackout and Tres Leches really stood out.. they were great and nott oo heavy.
Banana Pecan was actually given to me by accident, however the guy behind the counter let me keep it! Just took a nibble and saved the rest for later but it was really good.
And finally, the peanut butter glaze with blueberry jelly was also really fantastic.
I took home the coconut cream, blueberry cake, valrhona to go to try for another day and will let you know how they are also.
