M&M Donuts

M&M Donuts is a popular donut shop in Anaheim, famous for their blueberry donuts.

We’ve been wanting to visit since I discovered them two years ago. The odd hours (9:00 pm-2:00 am and 5:00 am-12:00 pm) make it hard for us to stop by. On our first attempt, we arrived around 9:00pm to find the wait over an hour long. We tried again once early in the morning last year, only to find they were out of donuts.

The shop is quite tiny and you can drive right up to order. I took a few photos from my failed visits but I can’t seem to find them anymore.

Last month, my brother and his girlfriend came to visit, and they brought me an entire box of M&M donuts!

I’ve tried quite a few blueberry donuts at the various donut shops in San Diego, and I couldn’t wait to compare.

The main appeal of the donuts is that people get to eat them while they are still warm. One of the reasons the wait time is so long is that all the orders are freshly fried. For my first donut, I ate it cold and I wasn’t very impressed. The texture is dense with a tight crumb, much like a muffin, rather than the softer texture of most of blueberry cake donuts I’ve tried to date.

For my second one, I stuck it in the toaster oven and that did help improve things.

Overall, I thought these were pretty good and different from the other blueberry cake donuts I’ve tried. However, I still don’t think it’s worth the hour-long lines and they really lose their appeal once they are cold. It was great to finally try them though and hopefully I’ll get a chance to eat them fresh one of these days.

  1. This is one of the very few donuts I actually like! 🙂

  2. Thanks for saving me one of those M & M blueberry donuts. I agree with you that they are probably much much better fresh. It was kind of on the harder side. Compared to Mel’s (their nearby competitor also in Anaheim), M & M’s donuts are darker with a thicker glaze and also thinner, giving it a bigger hole. Reminds me of the difference between bagels in the U.S. and bagels in Montreal (size and hole-wise).  I would not want to wait an hour in line for any kind of food (not even 10 minutes, haha!). 

    • I’m glad it worked out that I got them the same weekend I was meeting you so you could try them. Yeah they taste much different warm than cold. It sort of sucks that they don’t taste good cold because you really should be able to enjoy a donut hot or cold.
