Bennett's Fresh Roast - Sanibel, Florida

Bennett’s Fresh Roast was our third stop in our 4 hour Sanibel/Captiva foodscapade, Schnapper’s Hots & the Bubble Room were stops 1 & 2). We’re here exclusively for the freshly made Doughnuts. We ask the only logical question, what’s the most popular Doughnut at Bennett’s? I’m pretty sure I could have guess the Maple Bacon because it was a thing of beauty with real Bacon made daily, not that freeze dried and then nuked Bacon going around.

A couple of the sandwiches on the Bennett’s lunch menu look interesting like the Bennett’s Donut Dog (A “long john” donut split down the middle and loaded with an amazing Nueske’s® Applewood Smoked Hot Dog, Bennett’s homemade chili, BBQ sauce, honey mustard and cheddar cheese) and the Chicken & Donut (A fresh made Bennett’s Donut (no icing or glaze), halved and smothered in fresh homemade chicken gravy made with fresh house-roasted and brined premium chopped chicken breast meat, cream, seasonings and vegetables including diced carrots, green beans and corn).

My friend Joakinn asks for a Glazed & a Boston Creme Doughnut while I order up a Glazed, Maple Bacon and a Maple Toffee Crunch for my wife. We have them packed up together and I take a Glazed Doughnut test bite in the car on the way to our next stop.

It was a great sneak peak but did not prepare me for the Maple Bacon which was off the charts. The Maple Toffee Crunch (Heath Bar) Doughnut was received well by my wife but the Boston Creme’s fate was less glamorous. Some ants that were hiding out in my kitchen found it and had their way with it, those heathens.
