Siouxland Families Eat FlyBoy Donuts

If you've been reading this blog for long or if you know me personally, you may have noticed I love donuts. While I'm a huge fan of our Sioux City donut shops, especially Jitters and Sunkist, I couldn't resist trying some donuts in Sioux Falls too when I was there recently. After all, it's only an hour away! We stopped by Flyboy Donuts , which I have heard is Sioux Falls' go-to place for gourmet donuts. They have a wide variety of donuts from classic cake including plain, blueberry, and chocolate, and yeasted donuts in a variety of shapes like donut holes and stars, to trendier flavors like maple bacon and cereal topped long johns. They also had giant donuts, apple fritters, and huge caramel rolls. To drink, they had hot coffee and cocoa, plus a cooler full of a wide variety of milk, juices, etc.

One of their fun options we didn't try but would love to sometime is donut letters. They do an amazing job of somehow making all the letters turn out clearly even after rising and cooking, and they are so cute! I definitely would consider them for a birthday party or baby shower. 

We tried their chocolate cake donut, a "Jet Fuel Joenut" (chocolate cake donut with chocolate frosting, whipped cream, chocolate covered espresso beans, and caramel drizzle), maple bacon long john, fried cinnamon roll, and yeasted donut holes, and they were all delicious. The cake donuts were light and fluffy for cake donuts, and the yeasted donuts were like little clouds of sugar and flour.

One of the things I loved about FlyBoy Donuts was how kid friendly it was. They had a package of wipes at every table, which made it easy to clean off your table if you wanted (there were no crumbs or stickiness on our table at all though. The whole place was very clean!) and they had an adorable kids table in the back corner. My son was so excited to sit at the little table to eat his donut!

Overall, I definitely recommend FlyBoy Donuts. It's a bit pricier than most of the Sioux City donut shops, but it is also delicious, and offers some types and toppings you can't find here. If you are looking for donuts in Sioux Falls, you can't go wrong with FlyBoy.

The Story of Loose Meat Sandwiches

There's nothing better in winter than some cozy comfort food. So, I'm excited to tell you all about Sioux City's signature dish, loose meat sandwiches, along with where to buy them and how to make your own! What is a loose meat sandwich? A loose meat sandwich is, at its core, a loose pile of flavorful ground beef, served on a hamburger bun. Many people refer to it as a tavern or tavern sandwich.  Exact seasoning blend varies by maker, but onion, horseradish, mustard powder, ketchup, pepper, and garlic are common, as is a pickle to top, and it should be loose, not in a patty, and fairly dry rather than saucy like a sloppy joe. History of the Loosemeat Sandwich The loose meat sandwich was created in Sioux City in about 1924, although there doesn't seem to be a clear historical record of who made it first. Miles Inn and Ye Olde Tavern were certainly selling it very early on accordingly to local legend, and it's likely the dish was invented at one or the other. Cho

the story of Sioux City Sarsaparilla

One of the most widely known "Sioux City" things actually isn't a Sioux City thing! If you've seen the movie The Big Lebowski, you may have caught this scene: And Sioux City Sarsaparilla is real (and it really is a good one!) Here's the full story on Sioux City Sarsaparilla: What is Sioux City Sarsaparilla? Sioux City Sarsaparilla is the signature drink from White Rock's Sioux City line . In 1973, White Rock president Albert Morgan wanted to start a western inspired line of classic American soft drinks, with a frontier feel. He chose Sioux City as his inspiration! Sioux City Sarsaparilla is known as "the Grandaddy of all root beers" and has a creamy taste somewhere between root beer and cream soda. And it's the most bought sarsaparilla in the US! Is Sioux City Sarsaparilla made in Sioux City? Nope. Sioux City Sarsaparilla is actually made in New York by White Rock Beverages ! The company actually started not too f
