The best doughnut shop in Colorado is located in Stanley Marketplace, survey says Feeling fried from work and looking to sweeten your day? Travelocity recommends a stop at Glazed & Confused in the Stanley Marketplace in Aurora. The travel agency ranked the locally-owned store as Colorado’s best doughnut shop in a list released just in time for National Doughnut Day, which is June 1. Which creations are sure to please? Obi wan Cannoli — a cream-stuffed pastry topped with cannoli crumbles — is one of Travelocity’s top suggestions. Or, if you’re looking for a fruity twist, try Breaking Banana Bread, a banana-filled cake doughnut, finished with a salted caramel glaze and chocolate chips. Other notable shops in states bordering Colorado include The Donut Whole in Wichita, Kansas, famed for its unique root beer doughnuts, Rebel Donuts in Albuquerque, featured on both the Food Network and Cooking Channel, and the Rock Springs, Wyo., outlet of family-owned Cowboy Donuts, favored for scratch-made 75 cent glazed doughnuts. Any of the four Polar Donuts locations in Oklahoma will do, but the list makes note of “cheekily named options we dare not mention here.” The list also took a liking to Olsen Bake Shop in South Omaha, Neb., and Chicken + Donuts in Phoenix (really.). Traveling to Utah? You’ll have to decide for yourself — Travelocity’s rankings do not include the state running alongside Colorado’s western border. A note to doughnut shops: if you want to make your mark in the rankings, make more friends at Travelocity. Though the idea of a doughnut-tasting road trip sounded like a good idea, company spokesman Keith Nowak said in-person, cross-country research was unrealistic. “We realized we’d come back sleepy and fat, as fun as that sounds,” he said, “but maybe someday it’ll be on our agenda. Instead, the list was compiled based on the recommendations of friends and acquaintances, and one name kept coming up in Colorado. “We got multiple ideas, but one that kept coming back again and again was Glazed & Confused,” he said. “It was one of those that definitely stuck out. There was very little question that it was going to be the best doughnut shop in Colorado.”.
