I'm a big fan of food trucks. Yakima has several great options for food but when I noticed one that happen to have had beignets I got excited.
When Disney's The Princess and The Frog came out I loved it as it was featured in Louisiana and featured so many cajun dishes. One of the highlights is beignets.
If you're not familiar, they're a little like pillows made from 'funnel cake' batter, in a way. A sweet pastry of fried dough and it's so good. There are several ways you can serve these and, fortunately for me, the good people at What I Crave had several options, too.
I don't remember every option they had for Beignets but they had original dusted with powdered sugar, banana rum, apple and something. I was good with Banana Rum so I ordered one of those for myself and two more original for my kids.
These were great and if you get the chance you'll have to try them, too.
Though they don't have a brick and mortar location, follow them on Facebook to find out where they'll be next. And, if you can, try the beingets. I gotta try those apple ones next time.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State
To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
