RE: Apple Cider Donuts
Well, as a NJ-er, I expected to see Delicious Orchards noted, but, for me (with a touch of demophobia), I prefer the much more downscale pair of orchards outside of Freehold (west of town, on old Route 33 [Business]) - Wemrock Orchards and Battleview Orchards. (More or less cross-road rivals, a result of a family feud of sorts, IIRC).
Easy parking, quick in-and-out, no "amusement park" sized crowds, or long treks through the Mercedes and Lexus filled parking lot to get in. (Oh, yeah, and on my way home <g>).
I was a bit shocked at my first re-visit to Delicious back in the 90's after not having been there since the late 1970's- Battleground and Wemrock still have a "local" and true "retro" feel, as if time (like Route 33) have somewhat passed them by...
