Congratulations Glazed Over Donuts! You earned the first company review on my blog!

Beacon, New York is not a huge trip for me since I come here multiple times throughout a year to visit my Grammy. However, I will say that even after 24 years and probably hundreds of trips, Beacon never gets old. There is always something new to try and somewhere new to explore. I remember Beacon being nothing like what it is today and I mean that in the greatest way possible. This is where Glazed Over Donuts comes into play!

I haven’t been in the area for a few months so I was shocked to find a new donut shop opened. If you are reading this and you know me personally, I LOVE DONUTS. I knew I had to try at least one before my time in Beacon came to end. I did no research about the shop and instead just looked up the address and showed up.

Glazed Over has a unique approach to donuts. You pick up a clipboard at the counter and create your donuts based on this list of glazes, toppings, and drizzles:

You put how many you want of that specific donut and they make it fresh in the back while you wait. There is even a glass wall for you to watch them complete each of the customized donut orders. This was all really impressive. I have never had a donut with customized toppings made fresh for me.

Once I got my dozen donuts (yes, I went all out) I tried each one and they did not disappoint. They were ready within 5 minutes which I was not expecting considering they are custom to each customer.

I did find that I was a bit overwhelmed with all the options I had to choose from when customizing each donut. I REALLY enjoy this concept but I would like to see some ideas already completed for customers that may be super indecisive or in a bit of a rush. I was just standing there trying to figure out what glaze would go well with this topping and that drizzle wishing there was a bit more guidance when picking each important piece. They do have a donut of the day (which I did not try) but that would be along the lines of what I am looking for.

Make sure you like Glazed over Donuts on Facebook and follow them on Instagram (I know I did)!

The atmosphere of the shop was really down to earth and clean. I want to stress the cleanliness because these donuts are super messy and the shop was still clean.

Overall, I was not disappointed in Glazed Over Donuts one bit. The variety, the efficiency, the transparency, the taste; it was all great. As I mentioned, the only thing that would have made this perfect was the options to choose donuts that are already customized to avoid one’s brain from hurting too much. I will be back next time I am in town and I am already looking forward to it!

You can find Glazed Over Donuts on 315 Main St, Beacon, NY.
