Tuesday Tell-Tales.

Welcome to Puerto Rico…home of the guava donut!

Okay, that’s probably not the puerto rican tourism association’s slogan or anything, but they might want to seriously consider it. Because I cannot stop thinking about the insanely delicious guava donuts here in Puerto Real. I am starting to get a little concerned about having to leave this little fishing village because Jereme and I will no longer be able to walk to the bakery up the road and grab ourselves one, or a dozen, of these killer donuts.

^^third row, far right — the guava-filled powdered donuts that are rocking my world.^^

The guava ones have sorta become somewhat of a problem for me. You know, the I-don’t-want-to-eat-a-dozen-donuts-every-day-and-gain-100-pounds kind. It’s a really good thing that the bakery isn’t located closer to our marina, or I’d be in major major trouble.

And I usually hate jelly or anything-filled donuts. But these have broken the mold. And after three months sans donuts (while we were sailing through the Bahamas — where there are apparently no donuts allowed), I am making up for lost time.

These donuts are freaking amazing. I’m talking melt-in-your-mouth perfect pillowy powdery guava-y goodness. Probably the best donuts I’ve ever had. No, definitely the best.

So, if you ever find yourself in Puerto Real, Cabo Rojo, make darn sure to visit Mercado’s Bakery and try a guava powdered donut. You won’t be disappointed.

And, I just wrote 197 words on donuts. Crap, that’s scary.

Happy Tuesday.
