A few weeks ago, my family took a road trip to Winona for what I thought was Minnesota's best donut shop.  According to the latest story on Yelp, I should have driven in a different direction because while Bloedow's is amazing, it wasn't picked as the best.

I was trying to figure out where to eat the other night and went to Yelp to check a few reviews.  While I was on my hunt for a place that had amazing cheesecake, a story popped up that caught my attention and was one I knew I'd have to share with you.  A list of the top donut shops in every single state was just picked by Yelp Elites.

What is a Yelp Elite?

Not sure if you were wondering this too, but before I get to the best donuts, I wanted to make sure you knew who the "Yelp Elite" is.  According to the Yelp website, individuals who are super active in the Yelp community are invited to be part of the Yelp Elite.  This is an invite-only process and a few ways to get this title include having well-crafted reviews, top-notch photos, a fleshed-out personal profile, and a proven track record of being a team player.
