The combo in question

Is glazed donuts and apple cider together.

Didn't think of that one, didja? I think this autumn we should all try it, though, as a way of embracing other cultures.

Wait, who DOESN'T eat that together? Are you for real? I think has been served at every hay ride/autumn party/halloween festivity I've ever attended.

I second the last comment. I think everyone was thinking too hard. I have had donuts and apple cider at almost every party and church function that I can remember. I have lived in Utah and Idaho. So maybe it is a Utah/ Idaho Mormon thing?

It's definitely a Northern Utah/Idaho thing.

Along with clothes that are ten years out of style....

Thanks a lot, anon.

That doesn't seem strange to me...

Fruit juice and glazed cake? That does not work for me at all. I mean, I've been to autumn-themed parties where both cider and donuts were served, but usually only if it was part of a larger refreshment table, and people could choose not to eat them together. Weird. 

I'm from Southern California, btw, although I've lived in Utah for a while now.

Yeah...apple cider and glazed donuts together go waaaaay back. So delicious. In fact...now I'm getting slightly desperate for some sweet, sticky goodness.

It doesn't sound exactly like a bad combo, but it's not a pair that you'd likely find served together at parties around here (WI). Apple cider, most definitely. But glazed doughnuts? Those aren't a seasonal treat. You can find those in every convenience store and office breakroom.

Kelly said... [reply]

Yeah, I have to say I've never had that specific combination. I prefer milk with my donuts.

Lady Steed said... [reply]

I do not pair those two together.

Though, I do recall that at our youth activities in the winter or fall we often had glazed donuts as the refreshment along with the options of hot chocolate, apple cider or milk for the beverage.

But just how did glazed donuts become a seasonal treat?

I'm with Amy Jane, Alicia, Lindsay and all who seconded. It isn't my first favorite treat to think of, but I am sure I've had this at every single Halloween church party I've ever been to.

Jen said... [reply]

I actually grew up with apple cider doughnuts themselves....yum!

Lady Susan said... [reply]

Personally, glazed donuts do not speak to my soul. I agree with Jen, what you you need to try is apple cider donunts. Pretty darn spankin' good.

that doesn't sound so much strange as it just sounds gross. ew. i think i hate glazed donuts anyway though.

abby said... [reply]

The donuts I've always had were the cake kind not the glazed kind with apple soda. Glazed donuts and apple cider sounds like a sugar rush waiting to happen.

Uhm, yeah, seminary morningside staple. Every mutual in the fall. Didn't even know it mentioned a curious statement. Actually, the cider is almost not sweet when you eat it with glazed donuts; it's very nice.

To Anon:
I want you to come here and tell me to my face my clothes are out of style. TO MY FACE. And then I will rearrange your face. Them's fightin words.

It's usually a donuts/hot chocolate combo, but I've probably had it with cider before. I'm from Payson.

coolmom said... [reply]

Um, Nem, what do you think we served at the annual donut making Halloween parties we've had for years? (whisper: hot apple cider)

Nemesis said... [reply]

Mom, where did we get the idea for the donut parties? (From someone who lives in L****)

Edgy said... [reply]

Ahhh . . . That explains why those were always served at the ward Hallowe'en parties growing up. It always baffled me because that was the only place where we had that combination.

Rynell said... [reply]

I prefer donuts with milk or hot chocolate. I've wondered why the cider/donut combo is so prevalent in Utah. Good thing we can count on Nemesis to point out such cultural icons.

And...um...don't mess with Azucar. She is a stylin' expert.

I too grew up with dounuts and apple cider, and I'm from Alaska as well, although some of our family's roots go back to northern utah...

I'm now living on the east coast and today, at the pumpkin patch I visited, we had donuts and apple cider (which by the way is different if you have it hot, then it's "mulled apple cider". there's a difference i found out.)

chosha said... [reply]

Now that does sound good. I will try it sometime, and probably long before our Autumn. :) Hey you don't have a recipe for good old-fashioned almost-rough-on-the-throat apple cider, do you? Because that stuff is devilish hard to find here.

RC Cola! said... [reply]

Mmmmm...cider!



I leave the bestest best comments ever!!! NO ONE CAN TOP MY COMMENTARY GENIUS!!!

Azúcar said... [reply]

Something else to consider, apple cider is cheaper than cocoa.

You know, for mutuals on a budget.

miranda said... [reply]

Go to New York state. Buy apple cider donuts. More delicious than you can believe.

BEFore said... [reply]

Well, what ELSE goes with cider?

Certainly not cookies. :)

(Me, I vote for crackers, cheese, and summer sausage, that's pretty much something I'd always vote for.)

nyc_ransoms said... [reply]

I have to agree apple cider donuts are delicious. The thought of glazed donuts and apple cider doesn't appeal to me at all. Definitely not quintessential. Another fall treat that I think is very "UT" is chocolate chip pumpkin cookies. I love pumpkin and anything chocolate so no complaints here.

BTW, I have been reading the blog for a while now, thanks for the entertainment!

No, someone who lived in Tooele, or however you spell it. I never thought of it that way before cause they lived in CA when they did it.
