It was mid afternoon and I knew the trays were only going to be half full ('cuz I'm a tray half full kind of person). No bother, I'd take that last dozen of whatever they had left, over the first dozen anyone else in Cleveland was serving up.
The main difference between Jack Frost and the others is that most, if not all, of their doughnuts have cream filling on top. I'm not going to say that it's organic this, finest ingredients that, or in a round about way healthy for you - they're not. The frosting seems to be the same stereotypical frosting you can find at most doughnut shops, only it's on every single one. It's seems like such a simple difference that would be much a deal - but it is.
My old man used to take my brother and I to the construction site with him on Saturdays (not by choice, but because my mom made him). If we were working in Parma somewhere he'd always send someone to JF for coffee break. The taste of the cream filling takes me back to those Saturdays. (A dusty work truck with the faint smell of gasoline seems to do the same thing.)
Maybe it's because it's in an odd angled building. Maybe it's because it's old school. Or maybe it's because it's just a throwback to my childhood. Whatever it is, I just love Jack Frost.
