Here's some examples:
*Mother Clucker-Fried Chicken Strip with Honey Butter (which I heard tastes amazing...I heard this after we returned home from our trip to Austin)
*Flying Pig~Bacon with Maple Syrup (which I also heard tastes amazing)
*Son of a Peach~Peach Filling, Cinnamon, sugar, and cake mix topping.
Each donut costs about $5 a piece and costs an extra dollar for a scoop of ice cream or if it is a donut that includes meat (chicken strip or bacon).

Mike equated this donuts as a "fancy supped up donut dessert." I totally agree with his assessment of the Gordough's donut. These donuts are not your traditional cop-eating type of donut. You have to change your mindset and expect a gourmet dessert...think along the lines of eating a piece of pie, or cheesecake. Does that make sense? These are large pieces of fried dough (delicious goodness) that are topped with sweets. You cannot (or maybe you can) eat a half a dozen of these bad boys.
|Black Out~Brownie Batter, fudge icing, chocolate covered brownie bites|
I ordered this donut, and had mixed feelings about it. I think that if you're a choco-holic you would think this was the best donut in your life. But for me, I felt that it was too much of a sickly sweet chocolate overload for my tastes. I really wanted to eat more of it, but just couldn't get myself to finish the whole thing.
The donuts were really good, but if someone gave me a choice between Gourdough's and Round Rock donuts; it would be a tough choice, but I think that I'd probably choose Round Rock donuts. I guess I'm a "donut purist" that enjoys simple taste and wonderful textures. Plus I think in a Calorie showdown, I'd be able to eat at least two Round Rock donuts versus one Gorudough's donut.
