One satisfying way to spend $10, is visiting a food truck. There is just something simple and delightful about walking up to truck, bus, van, or camper and have them hand you something magical through a tiny window.
This week, it's about the donuts
Butterscotch (near) Boston Cream (far)
What: Mini donuts
Where: Ol' School Donuts at various locations, track them down here http://streetfoodapp.com/halifax/ol-school-donuts
Price: $5 taxes in
The magical red short bus. They have loads of sometimes changing flavours like PB&Jelly, Boston Cream, Butterscotch, Lemon Raspberry, Maple Bacon, Plain, Sugared, Cinnamon Sugared. The bonus you get 2 flavours per order, and frankly an order of 10 mini donuts is a nice treat for 2 people. So 2 people for $5! A Nice treat for a family of 4, or take three friends out and you have a lot of pleasure for a Ten Spot!
Occasionally I'll throw and awesome Freebie in here too:
