Don't be ridiculous. How can something with a hole in it clog your arteries?

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.

    • No offense, but in my opinion this makes you unprepared to discuss it.
    • Every year, something is changed in a club design.  The real differences are minimal, assuming your current clubs are from within the last 10 or so years (just throwing out a random number).

      However, I just got upgraded to the Ping G driver from the Ping G30, and the big change I noticed is the face of the driver has a bit more friction on the G (at least as I understand it).  What it seems to do is reduce side spin, while retaining normal-ish back spin (I use the low-spin tec version).  When I miss-hit a drive with my old driver vs the newer one, I see noticeably less slice or hook with the newer version.
        When I go through those articles, I mostly read through the reviews of them.  It gives a better idea of what might be better.
    • Right, but then you're just getting into however different people value different things (including money, the performance of their golf clubs, the looks of the golf clubs, the value of a name brand, etc.). People have different values. For something like this, there's rarely any agreement on those, nor is there any "right" or "wrong" answers. I use a set of muscle backs that could just as easily be from the 1950s as now. The tech on those isn't really improving much (though the shafts are undoubtedly much better).
    • We went round and round a bit on this last year, but I don't remember seeing decision 15-3b/1 mentioned.  The difference between this decision and 27/6 seems to be that B's ball is found in a timely manner.  The finding of the "other" ball makes it virtually certain that A's ball was moved by an outside agency (Player B).  In the other thread, B's ball is never found.  27/6 allows the same kind of relief as long as the "other" ball is found within the 5-minute search limit.  As I read the rules and decisions, this is a timing issue,  the rules require a decision to be made within 5 minutes of beginning the search for A's ball.  If the "other ball" isn't found, its presumed lost.   In a way this is somewhat similar to another discussion we had, where a player's ball apparently hit a cart path and went much further than anticipated.  He searched and didn't find it at the expected distance, went back and played another tee shot for the lost ball, and eventually found the original much closer to the green.  He couldn't then put the original into play and "negate" the second tee ball, as he'd already searched for 5 minutes. I don't know if the difference in the timing of the discovery is adequate justification for the different outcomes, but that seems to me to be the defining factor.  It would be interesting to get the take of some of the USGA rules experts on this, not on what the rules say, but on why they draw the distinction.
    • I'd have thought there would be a sliding scale, akin to a volume discount. Not just $x/18 = per-hole cost. Or if there are obvious points where it's not terrible to get back to the clubhouse, make 3-hole, 7-hole, 11-hole, 15-hole, and 18-hole rates. Then you could even consider the par of the holes. Heck, if the course started par 5, 4, 5 I'd be tempted to just play the first three holes three times.  I'd get more for my money than playing holes 4, 5, and 6 which are pars 3, 4, 3.
