Trip to Round Rock Donuts! (Video Journal)

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Austin Texas Homes, LLC 453249

For weeks on our BlogTalkRadio show (http://blogtalkradio.com/jckc), we have been joking about the famed "Two Pound Donut" at Round Rock Donuts, which is located about 15 minutes from my house.

I have always enjoyed the donuts there, but until recently I had no idea that they produced such a gargantuan product.  It's apparently the equivalent of eating ONE DOZEN donuts at a sitting.

Mellanie Stewart is the supremely helpful lady in the video.  I managed to leave without getting the name of the other employee who appears here.  And yes, it is spelled correctly - she wrote it down for me.  :)

I would recommend checking out their donuts if you have a chance - they are located near downtown Round Rock, at 106 W. Liberty Street (indidentally, I am headed north on I-35 in the video during the driving scene):

Dear Jason,

I had no idea they made a monster donut. I feel that RR Donuts are far superior to Krispy Creme or Dunkin. Save me a regular sized donut!

;)

I saw this place on Man Vs Food, glad that you did this report. 

The question is how many police officers in the Austin area know where Rock Rock Donuts is located?

Answer, all of them.

Hi Jason!  I actually clicked on this to view it when you first posted it last night--then I watched the vid this morning and I'm just NOW getting back to comment!  I LOVE this post--great quality video and what a wonderful Localism post, Jason.  You ROCK and I know those employees are going to remember YOU when their clients ask about selling their home or looking for one in the area!  Way to go!!

Great video on the Round Rock donut shop. Wow you could buy ONE of those and consume your whole day's worth of calories in one sitting. I have never seen a single donut that large. Get production with the video Jason and nice to hear your voice and narration as well.

THAT is a crazy donut.  Who is that hungry in the morning???  I think I gained weight just watching this video.

What a concept, you could have office meetings and people could cut a piece of the donut they feel is appropriate!

We used to have a restaurant, here in Orange County, that served a chocolate eclair roughly the size of a football.  :)

Good job partner! Now you've gone and doughnut :) Amazing job. So Round Rock Doughnuts is right there in Round Rock about halfway between Pflugerville and Cedar Park, all suburbs of Austin, Texas? I would think the Austin area would be a great place to live with a 2 pound doughnut right there in the vecinity!

Hey Jason, Is that a little bit of chocolate I see around your lips?  MMMMI love donuts!  I could eat that whole thing. If you want to ship one of those over here to Alabama my address is..... Great job with the video, I guess you will soon move from radio to TV!

Jason,

Great video.   Thanks for sharing the RR donuts experience with us via the video journal.   If I ate one of this donuts (2,400 calories per donut) for breakfast, I will probably feel the urge to go on a very long hike and I probably would not be hungry again till late in the day.

Lovin' the donuts! I think that those are bigger than most spare (donut) tires that are in car trunks these days...
