Michigan Bakery Combines Donuts and Candy, Creates Cravings
Some of our Dunkin' Donuts Alternatives are old-school classic bakeries that aim to preserve the heritage of this humble dessert. Others are classy, high-end operations that demand the donut be taken seriously. And some turn out donuts that just do what they were originally intended to do—make people really freakin' happy.
Sweetwater's Donut Mill in Kalamazoo, Michigan clearly falls into the latter category. This 25-year-old donut shop is the kind of place that doesn't take itself too seriously, but still manages to earn rave reviews from far and wide. Their sugar-high treats include playful, candy-inspired varieties like peanut butter cup, carmello, snickers, and chocolate covered cherries—even some filled with marshmallow fluff.
Perhaps the best part is that this isn't the kind of bakery where you have to arrive before 11 am to get anything good. Nope, Sweetwater's is open 24 hours a day. For extra convenience, it even offers drive-thru service. Honestly, we're not sure if it's a good thing for America to have constantly available donuts this good, at a place we don't even have to leave our cars to get to—but you won't find us complaining.
