Donut shop pricey but wonderful

September 15, 2014 Review Print Print

I don’t care who you are, how old you are, or where you live, we all have one thing in common — donuts. They’re the best breakfast food, the best snack food, and even the best late-night snack food.

Recently, I was told about a new 24-hour donut shop on Campus Corner near the University of Oklahoma, Hurts Donuts.

So, one night after work, my friend and I drove to 746 Asp Ave. in Norman to get an after-dinner snack.

The building was a little difficult to find because it is hidden in a back alleyway. If there had not been a giant lit bandaid on the front, we would have driven right past it.

When I got out of the car, an overwhelming smell of fresh donuts greeted my nose, made my mouth water, and my stomach grumble.

The store had a typical college bakery atmosphere with sorority girls and frat guys everywhere sitting at tables.

Hurts had a great selection of donuts in their case, overflowing with around 20 flavors of highly creative donuts, plus cinnamon rolls, sausage rolls and kolaches.

The first donut I tasted was a typical yeast donut coated with vanilla icing and topped with Cinnamon Toast Crunch. It was divine. My taste buds were so happy while tasting the sweetness of the cereal mixed with the creamy icing and the flavorful yeast donut.

I couldn’t leave without getting a dozen donuts to take home and share with my family the next morning.

I finally settled on getting a Reeses cake donut, Butterfinger cake donut, Fruit Loop topped donut, an M&M cake donut, an Animal Cookie, and a few more.

The donuts were really good, making me happy that I went there. However, I will admit their prices are a bit expensive. Specialty donuts are $2 and a maple bacon long john is $3.

A dirty dozen costs $15, so by the time I left, I had spent almost $20 on fried dough.

If you’re on OU’s campus, stop by and get a donut — if you have a few bucks to spare.
