   Discussion: Best Chain Donut

This will start fist fights
Andrea Krause Back · 14 years, 4 months ago

I barely ever eat donuts anymore. Usually go for dunkin donuts out of convenience because they're on every corner here.

I don't like krispy kreme. Way too sweet.

Rimbo Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
Krispy Kremes are the best, hands-down. And if anyone thinks otherwise, I will seriously punch them.
Andrea Krause Back · 14 years, 4 months ago

Ummm...anyone wanna guard me from being punched? :)

I don't like dough donuts much to start with...I'll enjoy them but not nearly as much as cake donuts. But then on top of that, the krispy kreme donut is so damn sugary supersweet it makes me ill. (I know they make others but the main seller one is the one I'm talking about. The one you get to watch go through the machine.) Blech.

lawrence Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
You and I can cower in the corner or something. I can't stand Krispy Kremes. They're all gloppy and sticky and disgusting. A proper glazed donut should have a thin, relatively uniform and mostly hardended glaze.

aside from that, though, I prefer the toasted coconut donuts that Dunkin' Donuts offers anyway. Not so much a fan of the donuts dipped in thick liquid sugar.
Rimbo Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
Uh, oh . . . some folks are gonna get punched . . . wait, no . . . maybe a hug instead? I realized half-way through this post that I've never punched anyone in my whole life.

re: punching: not even in a friendly way?
Rimbo Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
Like, playfully? Well, I guess. Never with malice.
Annika Back · 14 years, 4 months ago

Seriously don't punch me.

I think they're too sweet, and too greasy.  They make my healthy teeth scream in gaggy sweet agony.

goovie is married! Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
nice hot fresh krispy kreme, yum yum yum.

but i also love timbits. dangerously addictive, those.)
Bruce Rose · 14 years, 4 months ago
Chain donuts are never the best. A good local bakery is always the way to go.
Paul D. Beasi · 14 years, 4 months ago
I like Krispy Kreme glazed donuts, but for overall selection my vote has to go to the Whole Donut.
Jay Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
not just 1/2 the donut?  : D
sheryls · 14 years, 4 months ago
donuts make me queasy. i dunno why :(
Yvonne Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
Maybe it's the fat content.

I gave up donuts years ago, I couldn't eat one now because I've lost my taste for fat. If only I could lose my taste for coffee, it would make giving it up so much easier. ;)
sheryls Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
that's entirely possible? i cant eat things that are total greasebuckets anymore, but i do still crave the occasional *salty* fats, like cheeseburgers. or bacon. lean bacon :P
Bender Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
I've entirely lost my ability to eat fast food.

I went for so long without it that eating it makes me queasy, tired and irritable. I think it's because I lost my tolerance for all of the chemicals and additives.
sheryls Back · 14 years, 4 months ago

yeah, i only eat it on roadtrips now, long ones that span a mealtime. usually the columbus-to-chicago drive.

I can still stomach tacobell so long as nothing i get is steamed (mexican pizza, meximelt, etc)...because the cheese gets too graesy. and only 1 gr beef item, or none. (omg, beanburrito no onions <3)

nate... · 14 years, 4 months ago
"no thank you" option.

:)

But if I was being forced at gunpoint to eat a donut... I guess I'd go for a dunkin.

sheryls Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
yeah. if i had to. plain cake. or coconut. anything coated in coconut is okay with me.
Geoff Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
Coconut is teh bad. I seriously think I'm the only person in the world who cannot abide any amount of coconut on anything.
Kris 'engaged' Bedient Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
I don't eat coconut either. blech
*joolee* · 14 years, 4 months ago
I never had a Krispy Kreme so I'll go with blueberry dunkin' donuts...yum
ChrisChin is Getting Old Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
!! your lack of Krispy Kreme goodness needs to rectified soon!
*joolee* Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
So NOT good for me!

I need to eat more veggies. My dinner had peas, bamboo thingys, and carrots. Mmmmm
ChrisChin is Getting Old Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
you ate veggies!?!? *faints*
*joolee* Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
I feel so dirty. Don't worry, it was drenched in grease :) Mmm pork fried rice.

But it was still veggies...
ChrisChin is Getting Old Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
*gasp* i'm still in shock!
nate... Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
Me too.
my world is all topsy-turvy!

Kris 'engaged' Bedient Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
veggies, cooked right, are teh yummies
emilie is CRANKY · 14 years, 4 months ago
i vote dunkin donuts. irrespective of the fact that there's a krispy kreme concession in slough now. *snort*
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
Yay, I'm glad I took you to Dunkin' Donuts not Krispy Kreme.

So notice how neither chain can spell their name right?
Phoenix Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
What I've always found hilarious is that until recently something so American like dunkin donuts was owned by teh French :D
Gordondon son of Ethelred · 14 years, 4 months ago
Does the word doughnut come from doughnought e.g. dough zero?
Andrea Krause Back · 14 years, 4 months ago

Not according to this site:

http://www.wordorigins.org/

lawrence Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
and the award for 'worst website design' goes to....
Andrea Krause Back · 14 years, 4 months ago

Yeah it's not great. I was annoyed I couldn't link right to the doughnut entry. Bah. But it's got some decent info.

Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
At least I'm not the only one that came up with the theory even though mine is a bit different. I never thought the nought referred to the missing dough in the hole but just that it was shaped like a zero.
derek harrison Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
i always thought that word was spelled 'naught'. this is embarrassing, considering that i use the word somewhat regularly, at least much more then most people. might it be a canadian/american difference? my teachers never point it out as a spelling error, but maybe they also don't know, and are just taking my word for how it's spelt. maybe i'm single-handedly, albeit slowly, changing the accepted spelling of a word! i'm excited now.
caroline: tired. Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
i always thought that word was spelled 'naught'.

As did I.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
Actually it can be spelled either way.

Naught or Nought at Dictionary.com
derek harrison Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
i guessed so, since a day after that i found the word naught in a book. i forget what book.... hmmmm
Mamalissa! · 14 years, 4 months ago
I used to like Krispy Kreme, but then I ate 2 at a swing dance contest sponsored by them, and went dancing. We came in second, but I puked during the awards ceremony.

Thought ya'll needed to know that.

I *heart* Tim Horton's walnut crunch bars. And i prefer them in Canada...for some reason i think they taste better then the US stores...i dunno...probly just a mind thing.

I used to like Krispy Kreme when they first opened...but the novelty quickly wore off and now i just find them too sickly sweet.

My second favorite are the apple fritters from my local grochery store (they make there own). They're HUGE and nothing tastes better with a glass of milk.
Gordondon son of Ethelred · 14 years, 4 months ago
Anyone else here love zeppoli? They are italian fried dough usually covered with powdered sugar. Yummy.
Jillian Bird · 14 years, 4 months ago
Up here in Canada, Krispy Kreme's still not that popular. The only time I get them is when we go to Mississauga to visit my husband's mother's grave. There's a Krispy near the cemetary. I always associate Krispy Kreme with death.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 14 years, 4 months ago
That sort of fits in with a description I heard. "Eating a hot cripy creme donut is like taking a bite of an angel's halo."
