Firecakes Chicago

Rating: B-

I finally tried Firecakes the other day.  They have one gluten free option.  It's supposed to be a chocolate donut.  It tastes much more like a chocolate brownie.  I mean, the flavor wasn't bad, but it was a very dense, more brownie or very dense cake-like dessert than a donut. I wasn't impressed at all, and I would definitely never go back unless Do Rite went out of business.  I'm sure they're great at regular donuts, but gluten free is not their forte. I feel like I'm being hard on them, and I definitely appreciate that they have a gluten free option, but Do Rite really blows them out of the water.
