KC is left off the list of America's 50 Best Donuts



Okay, the Donut Stops doughnuts look pretty good.

If anybody knows hot fat, it's Kansas City. But when it came time for Jane and Michael Stern (the authors of Roadfood) to compile their list of America's 50 Best Donuts for Saveur, Kansas City didn't make the cut. Adding fuel to the rivalry is that Donut Stop in St. Louis was the only entry for Missouri. Here's what the Sterns had to say about the Mound City institution:

It may look like a gas station, but regulars know this St. Louis standby for its holeless "cinnamon globs," which deliver butter and spice richness in a generous coat of sugar.

The Midwest on the whole (no pun intended) didn't fare well, and Kansas doesn't have a single doughnut entry. The Sterns missed out on shops like Fluffy Fresh, which yesterday dyed all of its doughnuts green for St. Patrick's Day.
