Major Donut Culinary Success @ Real Donuts - 94/100

I finally dragged myself over to Real Donuts #1 in Las Vegas, all those past Vegas trips, I never got here!  I was too late to get any fresh donut holes but it's a great sign they had already sold out of those in the morning, a good sign of popularity.  And they still had grab-bags of cake donut holes and they're mixed varieties which was a great alternative.  Especially for those who want to throw them into the donut sampling mix.

There were great looking donuts to be eaten here.  The Bavarian Creams were bursting with filling, popping out the top of the donuts.  There was a blueberry I had with a light glaze on top.  This one tasted a little dry for me, but hey, that's what dunking in coffee is for!

"Texas" donuts are made here so you can get your giant glazed and chocolate iced.  This place has something even greater, "Alaska" donuts that are big enough for a pizza box!  You can get these special ordered and I can't count all the special occasions an "Alaska" would come in handy.

I also got a "Volcano" buttermilk that had the cream filling busting up through the top and some great chocolate around the rim.  It was definitely a great choice.
