30 Rock – Tina Fey comments on her favorite donut shop

I don’t watch a lot of regular television. I admit that I tend to just watch classic movies over and over, but some close friends recommended 30 Rock to me. I know that creator Tina Fey puts a lot of her own personal interests into the nuances of the show (like continual references to Star Wars) so it made sense that her character’s love of food would include doughnuts.

Apparently they are from a Brooklyn bakery known as Peter Pan and she describes them as “powdered sugar on the outside, white cream-filled donut (not to be confused with Bavarian cream).” It seems the cream filling is “very, very white” and “if made correctly, makes you blind.” Sounds like I need to hit up a special spot in Brooklyn when next I visit New York!

    I wholeheartedly agree that Peter Pan’s donuts are *amazing*. My sister lives near their shop and part of me now wants to go visit her just so I can go to Peter Pan again!

    Oh, you must go! Decor hasn’t been changed in 30+ years, the countergirls wear uniforms, and there’s a U-shaped counter with stools. The donuts are cheaper than at DD or KK and are just wonderful–the marble cruller, fresh and warm, is a thing of beauty. I’ve heard that in the summer, they make donut ice cream sandwiches.
