breaking bad donuts 1

If you're counting the minutes until Sunday's Season 6 opener of Breaking Bad like we are, you might enjoy this timely article from The New Yorker on Albuquerque's newfound obsession with the mega-popular AMC series. Or, if you're actually in the Duke City, you probably know about the Blue Sky donuts (top left) from Rebel Donut. Dense cake donuts are covered with a blue cotton-candy-flavored icing and sprinkled with blue rock candy (Rebel's homage to Walter White's blue meth). And the beauty on the right is the Maple Bacon donut!


Chris and Amy recommended Rebel Donuts to us in early July. A small group of us visited and it was everything it was advertised to be! The choices were so unique, the flavors so bold yet subtle. There was an enormous line which we enjoyed as everyone in it was having a great time thinking about what their selection might be! While not classified as expensive, they were higher priced than your average donut! Strong recommendation!

I was just happy they were open on the 4th of July. They definitely have something good going on there.

D'oh! I received a text from Gregg with a photo of these donuts when we first arrived in ABQ and put them on my list only to completely forget about them!! Must be slippin' in my old age...

Very good donuts, Bill. There's even a poster-sized photo on the wall of Jesse Pinkman being very possessive over a tray of Blue Sky donuts!
