New competition for lasting legacy
I am going to say it, and I am not going to feel bad for it: Jack’s Donuts is better than Long’s.
My trip to Jack’s began by going the wrong direction. As I am a new driver, I still find myself getting lost from time to time, and this happened to be one of those times. After 15 minutes, I was back on track and eventually pulled into the parking lot. The scent of freshly baked donuts was irresistible, even before I had gotten out of the car. A blind man could have found himself donuts simply by following the amazing smell.
Jack’s Donuts’ large purple sign was not hard to miss. I admired the cool and inviting logo sitting above the “open” sign that greeted me before I even entered. As I walked inside, I was greeted by two friendly women and a small line of customers eagerly buying donuts and placing orders. Once I reached the counter, I ordered a cinnamon glazed donut and a drink. While $3 may have been slightly higher than what I wanted to pay for only one donut and a drink, I went with it because, well, I already took a bite out of my donut.
As I sat down, I began to take in the fresh environment that was Jack’s Donuts. They had a small area that looked like a salad bar, but it was for coffee. There was a multitude of flavors to choose from to add to a coffee. Because it was 6 p.m., I had to pass on this opportunity. Jack’s also had pictures all over their walls included comical way donuts were humans. The only way to explain them is by seeing them.
Overall, I was very satisfied with my experience at Jack’s. The donuts were amazing, the staff was very friendly, and I was also surprised that they are open until 9 p.m. Jacks may cost a touch more than most were hoping for, the taste and experience of Jack’s Donuts were worth it. I would say that even though Long’s donuts have a lasting legacy, a new competition arises in Jack’s.
