Yummy color in Lebanon

Secret color places are tucked in every corner of the Harrisburg area and this one is a true find!

In Lebanon, there is family-owned business that is well known to locals. It is the place to get your morning started, or just meet with friends and it serves up the most wonderful donuts you will ever experience.

The companies sign is so simplistic that you may have already passed and not noticed it. It simply says "Fresh Donuts". And when they say fresh, they mean fresh.

Every day starts well before most are awake, at 4 AM and the donuts are made fresh every day. Dozens and dozens with color that will make you want one of each.

The family owned business has survived many obstacles including a fire, but has perservered and Lebanon is a better place because of them.

A greeting, when you enter, from "Momma" will tell you exactly the kind of business they run. They know their customers like few businesses do today. They see many of them every day and think of each and every one as family. Stories abound about the care shown to customers and their families, from the "Fresh Donut" staff, during difficult times.

This tray of freshly-made donuts came out when I was there last week. Talk about difficult decisions! What would you choose?

The varieties are more than I have seen anywhere. My personal favorite is the cream-cheese filled. Not too sweet., just right. The colored sprinkles were calling very loudly also. The peanut butter filled came with high recommedations from a "regular". Maybe next time.

With very reasonable prices and the popularity of certain varieties, you may want to call ahead for large orders. They will be ready and waiting when you arrive.

With the best yummy color in town (and quite possibly the entire state), customers come from other states just for the treats. Those who experience the yum-factor once, seem to come back again and again. If they move from the area, they plan a special trip to include a trip to "Fresh Donuts".

Don't let the sign fool you! These are, without a doubt, the best donuts you will ever eat.

Not to mention that several years ago, a Dunkin'Donuts existed right around the corner. Sadly, it is no longer in business.

What a great story of small businesses thriving in the Harrisburg and central Pennsylvania area.

Kudos to "Fresh Donuts". We love you and hope you are around a long time.
