A man claims to have found the best fudge doughnut in Perth – but some have disagreed with his findings.
Gordon McCabe did a survey of the Fair City’s offerings.
After five rounds of testing, the football referee asserted that Fife-based Bayne’s had the best doughnut in the Fair City.
His enquiries followed the news that Fisher & Donaldson donuts are now for sale at the new Green’s store on Oakbank Road.
Bayne’s, Fisher & Donaldson, Greggs, Murrays and Stephens were all put to the test as part of the research.
He said: “Bayne’s is clearly the handsome, symmetrical, Zak Efron, prom king of the fudge donut world.
“The icing is nice, not quite as good as Stephen’s, but on a par with Greggs and ahead of F&D and Murray’s.
With Fisher & Donaldson now in Perth and boldly claiming to produce the “best fudge donut in Scotland, if not the world” ….
this morning I will put that bold claim to the test 🤔🍩 pic.twitter.com/WODwbNXO4J

“But it’s the filling that really changes the game, what on earth was that…
“I’m in a state of complete ecstasy.”
Controversy as Bayne’s doughnut crowned Perth’s best
The thread has since gone viral on Twitter, with more than 500,000 views and 200 comments.
One user said: “Fisher and Donaldson is the best – I’m sorry but that’s the truth.”
Glasgow based MP Gavin Newlands also disagreed, saying: “It’s an Aulds fudge doughnut yer after.”
Another user agreed with the findings, tweeting: “Glad to say I fully agree with your findings
“But only because The Carlton in Kirkcaldy went to the wall a few years ago and seem to have taken their fudge doughnut recipe with them.”
