    The city of Chicago is known for many things – the skyline, the architecture, amazing restaurants and shops – but now we officially can add our donuts to the list of bragging rights.

    The team at Thrillist traveled far and wide to compile their annual list of the best doughnut shops in America, and after narrowing it down to the top 33, two Chicago bakeries made the cut.

    Scroll through to see which local shops made the list – we dare you to make it to the bottom without running out for one of these drool-worthy confections.
