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.

    • Gotcha. Thanks. That's a possibility too. I don't feel like I am hanging back but as you know feel ain't real.  Most likely my problem is a combination of things (maybe ball too far back combined with hanging back?). This started happening out of the blue and has been going on for about 2 weeks (5-6 rounds), and even with range work i have not been able to shake it off... yet! Thank you all for the suggestions. I'll try to double check them one at a time until I can tell for sure whether my not implementing them is the culprit. It shouldn't be too hard to recover from this, but it sure is annoying...
    • https://www.gamegolf.com/player/JonMa1/round/1859679?hole_id=34840967 Short and mid iron approaches were pretty good. Pitches, chips were fine. I just had a rough time controlling the driver until the 13th today. Also had issues topping some 5i and 4i shots though I did hit a couple nice 4i shots. Putting was pretty poor today. I'm getting acceptable distance from my driver since having the shaft shortened and contact seems better. Unfortunately, controlling the club face continues to be a challenge. Excessive penalties have been the theme for 2017. Lowering my handicap from longer courses will be next to impossible if I don't improve this part of my game.
    • I'm surprised he didn't at least ponder if there was a rule on that. I didn't know but had it happened to me I definitely would've asked my partner or someone there, 'hey is there a rule about this?' Certainly shows how it pays to know the rules. 
    • At 63 I have all the same challenges others have noted. In addition, poorer eyesight has been a new challenge. I never had to play with glasses from age 10 to late 40's and then quit golf. Now at 63 and back playing golf, just seeing the ball clearly at address has been a significant issue for me. And of course corrective lenses that work at address aren't right for reading or distance vision. Anyone else? I'm afraid between poorer vision and all the senior physical challenges, my days of consistently finding the sweet spot on my clubs are probably over. Game improvement clubs here I (reluctantly) come...
    •  I bought one. I gave a review somewhere here. Anyway, short version: i wasn't real impressed with it. Not to mention it looks like an Alien Sandwedge from days back. It's rather embarrassing to have in the bag. Playability wise it does help with basic green side bunkers but without real options for adjustments for wanting different shot types. I actually decided to watch @mvmac's bunker post again and got a tip from him as well which had me doing much better with my 56* Ping Glide 2.0. it didn't give me any good feedback on tight lies from turf. As usual it's more about proper technique so the club now sits in my closet.
