So, that came and went. Fast forward to two weeks ago. Meg and I make a trip down to Ferndale to get a sticky bun from this place we'd been to once before. It was a hole in the wall we stumbled into with some friends from out of town some months ago. We had no expectations but this sticky bun was like a gangbang of deliciousness in your mouth. So finally we'd made some time for ourselves and slightly rearranged out schedule to get the same day off, woke up early and went to Ferndale. We get there and it's closed. Apparently because they were moving into a new location down the street. We looked for somewhere else to go but just about every other place was either

But we remembered that some of the places we'd made a mental note of that we had already been to in the short time living here, and didn't think they were all that special. Come to think of it, even back in the Bay Area we actually went out of our way to try a couple DDD places and thought they were mediocre at best.
So, if you've tried Guy's recommendations and thought he was full of shit, try Humboldt Sweets. It's the real deal.
Sidenote: he went to Lolita Cheese Factory too and that doesn't suck. Also, Halloween III was filmed there. Maybe there's a connection between 80's cult horror and good food in Humboldt.
