    It's doughnut, because it's fried dough. Get it?

    The "donut" bit came from a place too lazy to spell dunking.

    While I like cake-style, KK is what I grew up with...and a lit up "hot fresh" sign is the perfect pavlovian bell.

    Miz Diane's Uncle Bill trained as a cook in WWII. He got out and started a Donut Shop...which he ran until the 1980s. Even in retirement, he would be up at 3am baking something...

    Well, that's the dogs bollocks!

    Over here they're called "munkar" (that means monk) and they don't have a hole in them and are filled with applesauce (preferably, or custard or some kind of jam).

    One of my absolute favourite treats.

    This my favorite local donut shop. They do a baker’s dozen! It is about 2 miles down the road from me. I have my coworkers hooked on them. In fact they gave me grief this morning because I was late and didn’t bring any. They will also often give me money on Thursday to pick some up Friday morning. There is a Dunkin Donuts about 6 doors down from them and I can never understand why anyone would want to go there when a vastly superior product next door.

    We are over run with Dunkin Donuts in my area. In addition to the one I just mentioned there is another less than 1/2 mile from me plus another in the supermarket less than 1/3 mile from that! And at least another 4 in the immediate area. I don’t the think we have that many McDonald’s.

    Tim Hortons. Used to love the lemon jelly but they took it off the menu, so now it's Boston Cream.
    Back last summer they were trying to be "fun" so they had TimBits with broken Froot Loops on them and they looked not unlike this:

    I don't think it was terribly well thought out.

    Donut - as in Country Donuts, the go-to place in my hometown.

    Yes, I don’t care how it’s spelled.

    Don’t eat the same quantity I might have 50 years ago, prior to the advent of factory doughnuts.

    Still, one good doughnut with hot coffee is a mighty fine treat.

    Just here to say Krispy Kreme is doughnut like but not a doughnut. It's some other kind of pastry.

    Not dissing KK, just not a doughnut.

    THere's a local Korean family who run a great donut shop.

    I regularly pick up some donuts for the staff at my Wellness Center where I swim, and also for the Pharmacy crew where I pick up my prescriptions. And occasionally for the girls at my Veterinarian.

    And I like to deliver donuts to the Madison Hopeful AA Group, upon occasion.

    I don't eat sweets of any sort, let alone donuts, but I do love that my Korean gal makes wonderful kolaches with jalapenos baked in there.

    Those I can have.

    ;)

    You can get a decent donut in Japan but I’m still searching for maple bars…

    I try to avoid both varieties, generally. However, when the hankering hits me it’s usually either Dunkin’ Donuts or Krispy Kreme. The cinnamon powdered at Dunkin’ Donuts are amazing IMHO, But you have to get there early as they don’t make very many of them and they can be hard to find from store to store. And of course, the Krispy Kreme glazed are the crack snack of donuts… Their chocolate frosted glazed are pretty awesome too. Krispy Kreme are the only variety of donuts that I’ve ever felt like I had to repent after eating them for sinning against my own body. Ha ha.
