The week just after Halloween is among the best time to go get apple cider donuts.
The best cider donuts come from the best cider.
The best cider comes from the apples at the end of the season; this time of year.
We have spent years going to almost every place we can find for cider donuts.
Little farms, bakeries, and everything in between.
It is time to create a little list of the best cider donuts in Connecticut, so far.
Because who wants an okay cider donut, when you can get some of the best?
