The honors keep piling on for a Toms River donut shop, which has now been named among the top shops in America.

Uncle Dood's Donuts in Toms River has been listed among the 31 Best Donut Shops in America, according to a recent article at thrillist.com. The top shops were listed alphabetically, and not specifically ranked.

Thrillist talked about the origin of the Uncle Dood's name. It was the nickname given to the owner by his nephew, and as they say, the rest is donut history. And speaking of history, this is not the first time that Uncle Dood's has been honored.

Back in 2015, the same Thrillist named Uncle Dood's the best donut shop in New Jersey, and in 2016, it was named the best donut shop in the Garden State by Daily Meal.

Uncle Dood's is located at 4 Robbins St. in Toms River, close enough to the radio station for us to smell those incredible treats every day, and for me, it's an honor that Uncle Dood's truly deserves!
