Massachusetts is home to a lot of amazing bakeries and donut shops that have some fantastic donuts. When it comes to spots that are exclusive only to Massachusetts, we even have a bakery recently listed as one of the must-try bakeries in the U.S. The Bay State is also home to one of the most popular donut chains in the country with Dunkin'. But what donut joint is being called the best donut shop in the state of Massachusetts? (Spoiler alert: It's not Dunkin'.)

A popular food publication, known as 'Love Food' made their picks for the best donut shop in every state. They compiled their research using a combination of customer reviews, personal experiences, awards, and recognitions received by said donut shops. This particular donut shop even adds a little bit of a local flavor to their donuts they make everyday (pun intended).

If you want to find the best donut shop in Massachusetts, you will need to make your way to the eastern side of the state. However, don't worry, there isn't just one location of this donut spot, there are several in the region. The joint that is being called the best donut shop in Massachusetts is Blackbird Doughnuts.

'Love Food' picked out some of its own favorites at the donut joint in describing just why they picked Blackbird Doughnuts as the best donut shop in the state:

This place is known for its bismarcks – plump, cream-filled donuts – in rotating flavors such as Boston cream, lemon, cherry pie, and cannoli. There are six Blackbird Doughnuts stores in Boston, and people love trying the seasonally changing fillings. It isn’t cheap, but fans agree that donuts this good are well worth the money.

It seems they even have plenty of themed donuts for every season to get festive with as well.

That is just a brief sample of what Blackbird Doughnuts has to offer. They have seven locations currently with three in Boston (South End, Fenway, and Beacon Hill), and one each in Brighton, Newton, Cambridge, and their newest location in Watertown.

If you happen to find yourself on the eastern side of Massachusetts and you're craving a good donut, you now have the option of finding the best donut shop in the state at your disposal, as long as you head to a Blackbird Doughnuts location!
