5 to Try: The Post wants your picks for best donuts in Johnson County 🍩

Mr. D’s Donuts in Shawnee have been serving up handmade, fresh donuts daily for more than 45 years at their shop on 75th Street. Current owners Johnny Chen and Boggie Otgonbayar recently launched a sister coffee shop in Lenexa. File image.
