They have the BEST donuts in town, but this is the second day in a row I have gone in there and they are sold out of almost everything. They only have one woman working that I always see. She's awesome, but maybe if they hired more than one person, they might not run out all the damn time!

I know the woman that works there. They make the donuts from scratch every morning. That takes hrs. Its not like they get them frozen and just heat them up like other places do

Thank You. I'm very Sorry but this weekend we have been busier then I had plan. I Did make more Donuts today but as you know we sold them out again today. But with growth there is sometimes growing pain. We will keep trying to increase our production to keep up with the demand.

Sorry but they are FAR from the best.They always taste like dirty oil to me.

The place by Roses/Firestone is superior in quality and friendliness

As a matter of fact,I happen to be a baker employed with a doughnut shop,,,and can perhaps bring this into perspective a little better for you.The woman on the floor (owner's wife) during business hours at our shop is pretty awesome as well,however,unless you count the guys who come in and buy doughnuts for no other reason than to flirt with those ladies on the floor,,,those ladies in no way dictate the rate of depletion on available supply in the shop at any given time.Doughnut making is a timed process that requires several steps,all to be done in sequence,,,and on a demanding and very unforgiving time table.Allow me to explain.Doughnut makers usually arrive at their job around midnight,carefully gauge how many of what kind of doughnuts did or didn't sell that day.They then take things into account such as weather conditions,school activity and other variables that may factor in on the movement of the average doughnut customer.All of this information is quickly calculated,factored in,run through the mill,thought about again,,,and the boss declares how many pounds of dough must be prepped for morning production.And since doughnuts are a product that take over two hours from prep to frye,,,cooking an extra make-up batch during business hours is neither time nor cost effecient enough to make it plausible.All in all,it's a crap shoot at best,but since owners who guarantee fresh product daily can spend as much on product that hits the dumpster out back, as they do on the product that moves out the front door,,,they have no choice but err on the side of caution.Honestly,it pains their business when they don't have sufficient product available to meet your demand,so I believe I speak for doughnut shop owners across the world when I say,"we're very sorry for your inconvenience,but strongly appreciate your understanding and support".

I work at Amazin Glazin.. As it turns out, we have 4 employees, 5 if you count Bossman.. We make our donuts fresh from scratch every morning, and it's a 4 hour process.. If "customer" came in today at 11:00.. I had only run out about 30 minutes before that.. Even if we HAD started another batch when we ran out, it would have been almost 3:00 before they finished.. We'd already be closed at that point.. We've been very busy this week, and DID make extras today.. I'm sorry we didn't have what you wanted, but you can always call ahead when you know you're coming in, and we'll gladly put what you need aside.. Thanks for saying we're the best and that I'm awesome.. We do try our best to take care of our customers and truly appreciate thoughts and suggestions..

how about this. instead of throwing them out. take them someone different each day and donate them and write them off on taxes. sure beats thowing money in the dumpster and you can at least get the cost of ingredients back. have businesses sign up for leftover freebies on a rotation basis. you certainly don't lose this way.

Since I began working with doughnuts,I've been looking to perfect a plan that utilizes the surplus,gives a little something to the surrounding community,,,and turns some kind of a profit for the owner.However,every alternate plan that I've managed to deduce ends up costing more than simply scrapping them out the back.And though we haven't tried it personally,it's been learned from previous shop owners that there's no wise way to sell the old product at a discount price without sacrificing the end of the business that keeps the business alive..However,when time allows and we have unsold product,I'll hand-pick my favorites for the morning,and divide the rest among various pals and family members,if it's not all that many.If it happens to be one of those nights when I go in and it looks like we didn't even open up that day,I'll bring as many as I can package home to my neighbor,who in turn dispenses them to people from his church.And that system is quite perfect actually.Most of our surplus product gets utilized at no cost to the company,dispensed far away from our customers,,,and still very much appreciated by doughnut enthusiasts..

Hello Butterfly,how are you doing tonight? Just visited you're facebook page and browsed through the photos of your shop's doughnuts.And to be honest,most everything looked to be up to par and pretty tasty.Gotta be honest though,the lady I work for has been more than graciously patient with me,and honestly didn't appear to be as distressed with me when I loused up a high dollar chunk of concrete in her drive-way,,,as she did in my training days at the shop when I presented her with some fresh made chocolate doughnuts that looked like those do.Only a suggestion,but I would probably thin the chocolate down just a wee,present the doughnut to the chocolate a little bit sooner out of the fryer,perhaps let it lay in the chocolate just a fuzz longer,,,and perhaps retake those pictures.Either way,,,you have a good night.

Not trying to take credit for pointing out the obvious,,,but I'm thinking that you can pick up a free sample at warm blessings on Monday,food bank in Upton on Tuesday,and church in Hodgenville on Wednesday,,,but probably gotta go to the shop on 515 North Mulberry in Elizabethtown to get one on Thursday though.Good luck either way.

I just read their Facebook page and I must say I am impressed. I don't live in E-Town and have never stepped foot in the bakery. What I can tell you from what I've read is they have been in business maybe 6 weeks and everyone appears to like their product.
Oh, and to get their early because apparently they don't make enough doughnuts to keep up with their daily demand on some days.
Congrats and keep up the good work!
