I don't know if this is an unpopular opinion, but I don't understand the appeal of mixing spicy and sweet. I don't like cayenne in my dark chocolate, or (slightly different here) salt on my caramel. (Otherwise those donuts look so, so good.)

I have had there donuts they are the bomb, going back and forth to NY (Manhattan) every month for two years I got used to the food. There is nothing like it

Used to joke that I needed to get two seats to fly in order to fit my fat ass. Love the food in NY and miss my pie!

My uncle was a baker.  He had a donut shop in Wellesley, MA back in the '70s.  His forearms were like Popeye's.

I don't each donuts very often anymore, but I remember his were awesome.

Yea I am not a fan of Cayenne pepper. I would pick something else for the spice.

Though sea salt + dark chocolate is so much better that sea salt in caramel. Though I am not a big caramel fan.

Still the best donuts I ever had was in Ocean City, Maryland. Liquid Assets, a restaurant + Liquor store. They have a desert that is a freshly made donut with the topping of the day. Mine was peanut butter and jelly donuts. Few moments happen when food can drown out everything else around you. These donuts shut off the world.

Probably not, but I know people who eat chocolate fudge and red chili peppers. Straight up. Not for me though.

I have no problems eating really spicy food, so sweet and spicy is interesting to me.

Salt basically turns up your taste buds, enhancing the sweet flavors and cutting bitterness. For those who drink coffee, you can add a tiny pinch of salt (not enough to taste salty) and it will require less sugar to cover the bitterness, therefore tasting better, especially if you have soft water. Same deal with chocolate which is very bitter by itself, and caramel which has poor, one dimensional flavor without the salt. Or you can look at the margarita, which uses salt and acidity to balance everything.

We are wired to love salt and we don't really taste some foods properly without it.

As for the spicy, I don't go much for Jalapeños, since I find them to taste pretty lame. There are much hotter and more flavorful peppers out there, including habaneros which have a slight fruity flavor to them in small amounts. One of the best desserts I ever made was a strawberry mango salsa with a touch of fresh habanero served over some ice cream.

You are welcome to your own tastes in food but that kind of stuff done well can be delicious. I do think it gets a bit overdone at a certain point but that donut seems tasty, I'd be all over the lemon poppy seed ones though.

    • Ball likely in casual water but uncertain
      You're exactly right. At first I meant we were told to re tee if we could not find it, meaning unplayable stroke and distance, same as a lost ball but obviously you must call the correct penalty. But that makes no sense because it would just be a free drop if certain the ball was in. But what ACTUALLY occured was because of the cold and forecast of pouring rain (which happened) they made an odd rule where we could re tee without penalty if we saw the ball go in. So I did not do the free re tee, which someone in the group did a few holes before, beause we were not sure, AND we didn't rake it out, so it was declared a lost ball. But the other kid who did not do a re tee because he thought he saw his ball clear the sand, took a free drop without finding it, all within the rules. The bunker was on the right side of the fairway so my line was further and to the right of the kid who took the drop, who hit it straight and short. All i can vividly remember is us standing in the pouring rain and cold, dragging rakes through a bunker full of deep water, and finding every other golf ball! Crazy!  I think you got to the real oddity where an unidentified unplayable is the same penalty as a lost ball, but called something different. Unless there is some difference? I guess if it is found before you hit the next shot you would not be able to play it where it lies in the unplayable scenario, granted you did not declare the lost ball lost yet (then no penalty). Is there any other difference? I guess both you can tee it up after the penalty, and you still can't go more than 2 clubs behind the tee markers in the unplayable scenario I believe. Wonder if there are any other differences between lost ball and unplayable but unidentified.
    • Ball likely in casual water but uncertain
      I think we are talking about a couple of different things.  First, I don't really understand the "local rule" you were given in your tournament with regards to the flooded bunkers.  When you say re tee, did they tell you to play your stroke over with no penalty.  Can't do that. As far as declaring a ball unplayable, this is different than taking relief for Casual Water.  You may in fact declare a ball unplayable without finding it, but in this case, you must play your next stroke from the spot where you played your last.  (Stroke and Distance)  If you think about it, its the same procedure as if you were to lose your ball.  Under the ball unplayable rule there is a one stroke penalty. Iacas gave you the rule for taking relief from casual water in a bunker.  In order to do this, it must be known or virtually certain the ball is in the casual water.

      @coop6. You're right about opening up too fast. I should have worded differently. It's not that your body isn't moving where it needs to move. It's that your arms aren't moving with your body enough. Or you might say the body isn't inluencing the motion of the arms. Try the Dufner towel under arms drill, it's an extreme drill but it will help this. Your body rotation has to help turn the club back to square, that is the whole idea, feel the body and upper arms turning the club back. Once that happens you won't have to flip the club shut right after impact.

      There is no such thing as a strong grip. There is a stronger left hand or stronger right hand. If you strengthen the right hand grip this will help close the face. If you weaken the left hand grip this will also help close the face, though less so. Stand taller and flatten the swing out until you are older. Don't try to be so bent over at the hips at impact. Take lessons so you don't get hurt swinging this way. Your shoulders should turn level through the ball. Like I said don't increase the bend from the hips at impact.
