With their new Babka Menschkins, Alicia and Daniel Mekelburg have faced off against Dunkin’ Donuts Munchkins doughnut holes, down to the packaging. But the Mekelburgs form their treats with cinnamon babka, a delicious variation that stays fresher longer than the average doughnut hole.
Babka Menschkins, six for $10, 13 for $18 at the store (online, six for $17, 13 for $31), Mekelburg’s, 319 Kent Avenue (South Third Street), Williamsburg, Brooklyn, 718-399-2337, ext. 3, mekelburgs.com.
