Doughnuts on a stick win again! We congratulate Mac’s Donuts even as we wave a tearful goodbye to Cashion’s and its Italian-style sugar-dusted treats.

There remains just one more face-off to determine the final four. As hard as it is to believe we’ve come this far, on Thursday we will pick the first of the two purveyors to enter the final round, where we will finally determine the reigning champion of local fritters.

Right now, however, it’s time to send either Bayou Bakery’s buttermilk beignets or classic ’nuts from Heller’s Bakery into the fourth slot of this round. As always, vote before 5 PM. The winner will be announced Thursday morning.
