After a long night out on the Jersey Shore, you’ll be lucky if you reach down and still find $1.35 in your pocket. It’s likely that, aside from all the beer and late-night slices, you spent those last few quarters playing NBA Jam at the old arcade next to your favorite boardwalk bar. Nevertheless, we hope that you can scrape the pot and find that buck and change to cross the bridge to OB-CO’s to grab a ‘sugar raised,’ which is one of the best donuts around. Lines can get long, so be prepared to wait, but the powdered croissants, lemon-filled, and Boston creams will be worth it. And if your bank account is still intact, just grab a dozen and try them all.
