The Nada Rating System

I realized that some of you may be wondering what is this rating system that I use to critique donuts and the suppliers. Well, for about 10 years I have been frequenting a local donut shop in Santa Cruz, CA called Ferrel's Donuts on Ocean street.

It all started while I was working as a surf instructor for Mount Hermon Christian Camps. Every morning at 5am we would take about 12 students surfing. We all know that the best thing after surfing is a fresh donut and a cup of coffee (Let's be honest, the best thing at ANY TIME is a fresh donut and a cup of coffee). My co-surf instructor told me a little secret as he had been doing this for a couple of years. He made a deal with the guy who worked at the donut shop. Every morning we would bring the 12 students to get donuts after surfing, and in turn, every morning the 2 instructors would get free donuts! This is when I fell in love with donuts. Consumption averaging 5-10 a week, I really got to understand the intricacies of donuts.

The man who we made this deal with is: NADA.

So for the past 10 years I have been popping in saying hi to Nada and enjoying the donuts. I thought it only natural to rate everything against him and his shop, because I truly believe that he makes one of the best raised glazed donuts I have ever eaten! Go check it out sometime.

(I haven't done a complete blog on Ferrell's yet because I'm intimidated. It is the standard for everything else, so I'm waiting for the right moment to unveil the full critique.)

Question: how do you feel about donut holes? Like them or is it all about the complete circle?

Haha. I LOVE donut holes. They are the perfect bite-sized treat.

The coolest thing I found was jelly filled donut holes. Sooooo delicious!
