Oh, those Prior cream donuts! I remember walking to the Bijou or RKO Broad Theaters with my buddies on a Saturday and on the way home stopping on South Clinton and Liberty Street at the Prior Bakery for 2 of their delightful "cream sticks." When that great old bakery closed down, there was no replacement; no substitute. It took me over 30 years to discover that there IS a local source for the fabled Prior creme stick! The folks at Eet Gud on Hamilton Avenue may not be using the Prior recipe, but believe me folks, these are the Prior donuts of our youth! Unfortunately, I have to limit my evil visits to Eet Gud for a while, as I attempt to reduce my growing waist line. But like General McArthur, I WILL return when I lose around 3 or 4 ounces!

My father used to take me to Prior's, the smell of the bakery is still in my mind, I can still see the donuts traveling up and over on thier little conveyor belts. Eat Gud is the closest you come to them.
