Doughnuts or Donuts?

It doesn't matter how you spell them, because both are equally delicious. And by the way, both spellings are correct, too.

If you're a doughnut connoisseur looking for new tasting territory and you're heading to Minnesota, Life in Minnesota has done the research for you.

These Are the Five Best Donut Places in Minnesota - -

  1. Bogart's Donut Co. - This patron of pastries has really got a handle on what people love in a doughnut. They started as a food stand in a farmer's market and at last count had 3 locations around the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. They're just as famous for their Brown Butter Glaze as they are for their must-try vanilla bean-filled doughnut, plus they'll toss in seasonal fruits too.

3. Han's Bakery- This great doughnut maker & baker in Anoka, Minnesota, had a business blip when they closed their doors in 2013. But thanks to an appearance on the Food Network they were resurrected and now business is kept buzzing thanks to not only their doughnuts but their famous German Beehive pastries.

Food Network Shows That Have Been To South Dakota

Living here in the upper midwest we are don't end up on national TV shows very often. That's probably a good thing in the long run.

But it is pretty cool when something from South Dakota is on TV. Three shows from the Food Network family of shows have showcased South Dakota restaurants.

You may remember when Guy Fieri and Diners Drive-ins and Dives was in Sioux Falls in June of 2020 to visit some of our city's unique establishments.

A few years ago the Travel Channel Show Food Paradise visited Deadwood.

If you remember the 'golden age' of Foot Network, back when Rachel Ray was the queen of the channel, she took her show $40 a Day to Rapid City in 2005.
