Country Style Doughnuts
By Paisley Hibou
Screw health consciousness. Next time your gut's rumbling, grab an old-fashioned doughnut. That's right, that guilty pleasure which, in its mass-produced, flavorless, mealy textured incarnation, isn't worth all the fat and calories. But at Country Style Doughnuts, where every doughnut is homemade, you don't have to worry about a pastry plagued with dryness or a strange aftertaste. It's pretty hard to regret a single bite of one of these babies.
This hole in the wall in Richmond, Virginia's East End offers 38 kinds of doughnuts, 24 hours a day, everyday of the week, except for Monday. Quail Bell(e)s are particularly encouraged to try the Boston Cream and the humongous apple turnover. Of course, you can get whatever you want, especially since a single doughnut only costs $0.96 and you can snag a dozen for $7.99.
Oh, and don't be surprised if all the sugary delights are sold out when you stop by. With pastries this good, it's bound to happen. Country Style has been, in their words, "deliciously addictive since 1968."
Consider them another one of the city's (unofficial) historic landmarks.
