When it is summer vacation and you have a child in humid hot/rainy South Florida with a non-waterproof cast on his leg, you will do anything to keep him entertained and happy so today, Sam (the one with the cast) and I headed out to Pembroke Pines to check out a new Donut Store called Mojo Donuts.
Mojo Donuts is a gourmet donut shop. Supposedly, they are South Florida's first gourmet donut place. They are in a non-descript shopping center in an area that we never venture to (it is about 30 minutes from our house). Was it worth it to drive 30 minutes for donuts? I guess if you ask my weight watcher's leader or my doctor, "of course not". If you ask anyone else, including my teenage kids, "absolutely!"
When we walked in, we saw a counter full of amazing looking donuts. The clerked explained that they are open every day from 6 a.m. until they sell out. They make the donuts fresh each morning. They have different flavors every day. I can't remember all of the flavors but some of them were
- fruity pebbles
You get the diabetic-causing picture. I let Sam pick out the flavors.
I tried the potato stick/snickers one. It was worth every calorie (or so I saw until tomorrow when the scale is sure to creep up)
Sam had some of the fruity pebbles and a brownie covered donut. Jake had the bacon nutella one. He said it was great!
We saved a guava one for Dad who is at work. I'm sure it is good.
Mojo Donuts is located at 7906 Pines Blvd in Pembroke Pines. I don't think that they have a website but here is the link to their facebook page.
I'm very glad that this place is not closer to my house.
