I grew up in New Hampshire, but my mother grew up in Rhode Island. Every time my parents would take me to visit my mother’s parents still living in Rhode Island, we would make sure to stop at Allie’s Donuts for their glazed crullers. These are real treats. The exteriors are thick with sugar and oil with just a bit of crunch. We never really tried their other donuts, but after you’ve had their crullers there is really no reason to ever eat anything else…maybe with the exception of vitamin supplements…you don’t want to get scurvy. They are best warm. Visiting again is like an adventure in childhood memories.
Allie’s has been in business since 1968 and is famous throughout Rhode Island. As out-of-staters, they used to be our little secret, but we keep meeting people from all over the country with the same secret. They only take cash and have only one location. They make a variety of donuts, including giant donut “cakes” in all shapes and designs. More about them can be found on their Facebook page.
