Tomorrow is National Donut Day so I thought this would be a good time to kick off a thread about donuts! What are your favorite donut places, your favorite donut brands, and your favorite donut flavors?
I grew up on Dunkin Donuts. We didn't even get a Krispy Kreme until I was in my 20's and I didn't like them as well as DD. Then our Dunkin Donuts went out of business so Krispy Kreme was all we had. Dunkin Donuts eventually came back but they were nowhere near as good as they once were so I go to Krispy Kreme more often. KK is closer to where I live and has better parking. Dunkin Donuts is on campus so you have to park in a tow-away zone and pray your car isn't towed while you're getting your donuts.
When I was growing up, chocolate-glazed and cherry-glazed donuts were my favorites, with chocolate cream-filled donuts right behind them. I also went through a time where I was all about crullers. I loved the crispy edges on them.
I love the Entenmann's mini donuts--powdered, chocolate, and crumb.
Then, of course, there are Munchkins/donut holes. I love them because you can have 5 or 6 donut holes in different varieties in place of 1 or 2 big donuts.
I used to love Little Debbie's donut sticks but when I became an adult and tried eating them, I found them inedible. Sugar overload!!! I never thought as a kid that anything could have too much sugar but your tastes sure can change as an adult.
I'm taking the day off from work tomorrow so I can indulge in free donuts from home. I had to use my personal holiday anyway so I thought what better time to use it than for National Donut Day?
