50 Finest Donut Shops

Two Maine donut shops have been included by Saveur in their list of the 50 Finest Donut Shops in America: Frosty’s, founded in Brunswick with a shop in South Portland, and Congdon’s in Wells.

The list was part of a extensive series of donut articles. The historical timeline of donuts (1600s to 2011) includes mention of Maine’s Captain Hanson Gregory and his invention of the donut.

Articles from the new issue of the magazine aren’t yet available online.

  1. Sorry, no mention of any other donut shops in Maine except Frosty’s and Congdon’s. Certainly The Holy Donut deserves to be on the list. I haven’t had donuts at The Cookie Jar. What are they like?
