~You know when you get a craving for something and you just HAVE to have it? Like you’ll do almost anything to get it? That’s how I feel about the maple bacon long john from the Glazed and Infused doughnut shop in Chicago. This amazing drool inducing creation has been on my mind for the past week, since I tried it for the first time last weekend at the Frankfort Country Market. What two things go better together than a sticky doughnut and a thick slice of bacon? It’s a match made in heaven.
It’s even been rated as one of the top 12 doughnuts in Chicago, so you know it has to be good. After patiently waiting my turn in line, I had gotten my hands on what would become my next farmer’s market obsession. The dense yeast doughnut (which I prefer over their dry cake based counterparts) was chewy and moist, the maple glaze was sweet and sticky, and the bacon was crunchy and salty. I love a sweet and salty combo, and with this you get the best of both worlds.
After dreaming about this damn doughnut for seven days straight, I couldn’t wait any longer. But to my greatest disappointment, they had sold out of the maple bacon long johns when I reached the stand 😥
I was immensely bummed. I felt that there was nothing that could drag me out of my doughnut depression. I know that sounds dramatic, but when you try something so astronomically amazing and it’s been yanked away from you, you get upset about it! Time to play the waiting game, again.
