Kinser’s Bakery in Monticello, Indiana has been a sweet downtown destination for over thirty years.

This Indiana bakery had all of the usual suspects: cakes, cookies, pies, and pastries. They sure did look good.

My husband, Jeremy, and I decided to stick around for awhile and sit down with a cup of coffee. Of course, we may have bought a tasty treat to go with it.

With a well-stocked case or two of items, it was really hard to decide. I hate when I reach that point of needing a snack and then there are what feel like endless options. There were oodles of donut choices–and donut holes. I love those and don’t really see them very often. How fun.

My husband made a beeline for the Pecan Roll. It looked really good. But as for me, I couldn’t resist the pastry. I chose the cream cheese pocket pastry. I was asked if I wanted it warmed up. Oh, my goodness. That was delicious.

Now this is good stuff. My pastry tasted like it just came out of the oven, all warm and flaky.

Kinser’s Bakery has something I have never seen before, a Texas Donut. Yes, you read that one right. This is a mammoth of a breakfast treat. In fact, you could say it is even Texas-sized.

I realize now that I should have put a regular-sized donut in there next to the Texas-sized donut so you could really get a feel for the difference. But, I think you can tell it’s pretty giant just the same. It was quite a site to see. I wish Kid #1 had traveled to this Indiana town with us. He would have gotten a kick out of that for sure.
