It is the vacations: Christmas is simply a few quick weeks away, homes and streets are adorned, and there is a festive spirit within the air. This time of yr at all times jogs my memory of being a child… Christmas is certainly a kids’s vacation… and fortunately (or begrudgingly) a few of us by no means develop up.

Till we’ve to.

Issues change: associates come and go, family move away, vital others pack a bag and depart in the midst of the night time like we cannot discover (you may be again Karen!)… and typically it may be very arduous. And worse than all of these issues:

My favourite donuts are going extinct!

Now, these aren’t some little powdered numbers you get on the 7-11 whenever you cease for fuel on an extended drive. Oh nay nay. These donuts are a STAPLE of not solely my childhood, however the area that I grew up in.

cue the Surprise Years theme music…

Leavitt’s Nation Bakery… household owned and operated for 44 years. Sadly, can be closing their doorways for good on February twenty ninth, 2020. This can be a devastating blow to the inhabitants of my dwelling city of Conway, NH… and everybody else who was in-the-know when visiting city. All of my pilgrimages again dwelling by no means felt full till I obtained a Leavitt’s donut (or a dozen).

Even to this present day, Leavitt’s Bakery is the one place I do know the place a dozen donuts is below $10. Positive, possibly Dunkin’ Donuts is shut in value, however not in high quality, or measurement, or the love fried proper in. And I imply unconditional love… not the fickle love of a dishonest hussy named Karen.

Anyway, after I was residing and dealing in Conway, I would cease by each Saturday morning and get a dozen for me and my coworkers (particularly that one piece of ass who seemed like she’d by no means even smelled a carb in her life… she liked donuts).

Residence of so many candy treats, it would be not possible to record all of them and never depart somebody’s favourite out. Pies, muffins, fritters, and naturally espresso and donuts. These confections have been on this inexperienced earth longer than the author of this text; and are equally as doughy and candy. I do not even suppose the aesthetic has modified in 40 years.

All I can say is that I will sorely miss these candy, chewy and caky (when they need to be) selfmade donuts. They have been as a lot part of my life as something has. They’re excellent. I’ve tried donuts throughout, all over the place I’ve traveled (see the FGFB overview of NYC the place I visited an artisan-hipster place referred to as Dough, or in Chicago the place I had an ice cream sandwich made with 2 glazed donuts)… nothing compares to Leavitt’s Donuts… not even those my mom made within the fry daddy for me as a wee one.

And if that image and my phrases aren’t compelling sufficient, dig this, I posted a goodbye to Leavitt’s Bakery alone Instagram/ Fb, and obtained extra engagement, feedback, reactions and attain than another submit I’ve ever created. My very own easy tribute to a neighborhood household and their sugary items to the world sparked a revolution of affection and candy disappointment for the lack of one thing so terrific. I simply want I may’ve executed extra.

The Leavitt’s have executed loads for the neighborhood, past their family-owned enterprise. They’ve touched so many individuals. And everybody who’s tasted their items is a life-long fan. Commenters acknowledged they drive over an hour only for Leavitt’s merchandise. Everyone seems to be saying the arduous goodbye to a really particular enterprise that can be missed greater than they will ever know. And as a lot as I admit they deserve their retirement, it is heartbreaking that there is not a younger relative to take the reigns and hold this one in every of a sort little store in enterprise.

Please, if you’re of their space, cease by and pay your respects to the tip of an period. And do your self an actual favor and buy 30,000 energy price of baked items. You will not remorse it. And all I can say to the Leavitt’s is that this…
