King Cake is problematic, there needs to be a better term

Dong Phong while delicious isn’t a traditional king cake. Isn’t it basically a massive croissant rather than a spiral ring?

That's a pretty good list. One of my personal favorites in New Orleans is not as well known, but I've already bought two of them this year -- Tartine Bakery.

The best King Cake is always Manny Randazzo's, and I don't want to hear anything else on the matter.

It's not traditional, but Berrytown in Hammond has one that's essentially a big deep fried donut
