Stan’s Donuts, located in Westwood, CA close to the UCLA campus is one of my favorite donut places around. The shop is small, but has been a local favorite for many years.

During my recent trip to Chicago, I saw a donut shop with “Stan’s Donuts” on it. I did not think much of it as the logo was different. Strolling around the area near the Park Hyatt Chicago, I spotted another Stan’s Donuts. Out of curiosity, I stopped in to check it out. Much to my surprise, the locations in Chicago are an offshoot of the original Westwood location.

I decided to try one of my favorite donuts, the chocolate peanut butter donut. The donut was lightly and fluffy. The chocolate was sweeter than I remember, however the peanut butter is the exact same.

Although the donut was passable, it just doesn’t compare to the original. I don’t know whether I attribute some of that to nostalgia, taste or a combination of both.
