You're right - I had that as a kid.

And I want to thank everyone who has responded to my question. I'm encouraged now, to just take the whole dang thing next time. I suppose I can always wrap the rest of it up and take it home to share with the hubby and kids!
Of course, take the whole thing. And tomorrow morning, pop the leftover in the toaster oven for a minute and enjoy it all over again! For real boldness, melt a bit of butter in a skillet and lay that fritter down, babe! Oh, my! Oh, crap, I just drooled on my keyboard.

Has it been maybe 15 or 20 years? geez..
But I remember the Boston Creme and the chocolate glazed fondly.
Throw in a margarita and you got a complete meal with all four major food groups: Salt, Fat, Sugar and Alcohol!

My Mom did that when we were kids - I had forgotten that......she deep fried them in the deep fryer and then put them in a brown bag with powdered sugar and let us kids shake the dickens out of them. Hot, greasy, sweet.....donuts!!! That had to be back in the early 1960's - and I know for a fact that I did not have a store bought donut until I was in high school - in the 1970's!!! Memory lane is wonderful....and bittersweet.

Anything that's not jelly or cream filled, or fruity flavored. Preferably icing or glazed over cake.

The best doughnuts are Polish paczki, filled with apricot or plum jam.

If they're from Krispy Kreme and hot, I'll choose glazed every time. If not hot, I'll choose chocolate glazed.
If from Dunkin', I'll choose chocolate barvarian creme.
