National Donut Day was celebrated all across the United States back on June 4th, but we're still celebrating here in Eastern Iowa!

The website Love Food recently published their list of the best donut in every state, and the pick for Iowa isn't too far of a drive from Cedar Rapids. Now, it's important to note that Love Food didn't explain exactly how they came up with their list, the article simply says they "scoured the country," but we're going to trust that they did thorough research.

Rockets Bakery in Waterloo was the shop chosen for having the best donut in Iowa, and that particular donut is the blueberry fritter. The article reads:

"Rockets Bakery promises its doughnuts are "out of this world" – and, happily, it doesn't disappoint. Everything is good, from classic glazed rings to seasonal specials like a margarita-inspired creation. Yet the blueberry fritter, filled with blueberry jam and topped with whole berries and glaze, is something extra special."

I'm not typically a fan of filled donuts, but these look absolutely delicious:

The bakery's website says that "Rockets Bakery was established in January 2018 by a mother-daughter duo to bring freshly made donuts, cakes, cookies, and pastries to Waterloo." They're located at 331 E 4th Street and they're open Tuesday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. If you're interested in checking out more photos of the donuts and other baked goods that Rockets Bakery has to offer, you can follow the Facebook page HERE. Warning: it WILL make you hungry!
