Double Dip: The Chocolate Iced at Shipley's

You're looking at a true guilty pleasure here. The chocolate iced is a specialty of the Shipley's at 3932 North Main. It's a donut that is sugar glazed and then dipped in chocolate. A lot of Shipley's skip the glaze -- "too sweet," they say -- but you can always get one at the North Main location. Kudos to my neighbor and long-time Heights resident, Russell Neel, for the tip.

On Saturday, the crew turns out boudin-stuffed kolaches. They do go fast so best to get there around 9 a.m. -- Jay Francis
