Got three small ones for two dollars at Tabora in Lansdale today. Very tasty. Where else are hounds getting their cider donut fix?

    O.M.G go to Merrymead Farm. I bought a couple for my kids, thinking they were just the normal, sorta dry donuts. Um.... NO. They were hot out of the fryer, rolled in cinnamon sugar and squishy like a Krispy Kreme. Needless to say I went back for a dozen. Total heaven.

        We went last Saturday and it was a fall fest type thing. Check the website, but I'm pretty sure they still have the food stands open. They were sheds, not portable.

        My mouth is watering again, lol. I may see you there this weekend!

      I haven't been there this year, but Northbrook Marketplace (formerly Northbrook Orchards) located between West Chester and Kennett Square makes them fresh all day long. http://northbrookmarketplace.com/

        Merrymead should have theirs in on weekends. I'll call up tomorrow.

          I love the cider donuts at Solebury Orchards (though I will admit to not seeing a lot of difference between places, as long as the donuts are fresh).

          On a different donut note--I finally had a chance to try Bieler's Donuts in the RTM recently. I particularly liked the pumkin donut, though everything I tried was good.
