Peterson's donuts in Escondido, CA. Open 24 hours and by far the best I've ever had. Instead of the regular typical frosting you get on a chocolate donut, they put what appears to be cake frosting on it.

The rest are just as good. Too bad they are so far from me. Or maybe that's a good thing....

The chocolate ones? YES!! Also the Entennmens chocolate covered donut. The coating was almost plastic in texture but OMG they were so good!

Also, back int he 80's Albertson's sold a "Texas donut". It was just a glazed donut about the size of a Frisbee. At the time they were $.69 each and my best friend and I would split one. I dont know where they got the recipe but to this day it is still one of the best donuts Ive ever eaten.

I don't care for cake donuts, so the melt-in-your-mouth glazed KK ones are perfect for me.

I live about 1/2 mile from a KK store, so every time I read this thread, I think about getting in my car and driving over.... but haven't given in so far.

The best ever were donuts we used to get at a little bakery in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ. I can't for the life of me remember the name of the place but it was off a side street that connected to Arnold Avenue. A family business, not a chain. It was very popular with shore-goers. I say was because even looking up bakeries and donut shops in PPB on the internet, I can't find a name that rings a bell. Not to mention PPB was almost leveled by Hurricane Sandy, so who knows if it's even there anymore. I remember it was near the HQ for some kind of club like an Elks or an American Legion or something. I even looked those up. A map shows an Elks near Arnold Ave., but the only Legion listed is in Brick.

Those donuts were so great and nothing better than donuts for breakfast while you're on vacay at the The Shore.

I haven't done it, but have been told that microwaving a Krispy Kreme takes it back to the "straight from the fryer" state ... as long as you don't over-microwave it.

I'm a Dunkin Donut fan, and I love the chocolate frosted ones. I haven't had one in years and probably won't start eating them again until I'm terminal, or about age 75, whichever comes first.

I think the altitude makes them taste better, frankly.

The chocolate glazed donuts at Conroy's Bakery here in Lincoln are the best donuts that I've ever eaten. Always very fresh. I suspect that small local bakeries (like Conroy's) generally produce better tasting stuff than the large chains, probably due to having little or no preservatives. Be sure to support your local bakeries.

The famous "cannoli doughnut" at Donut Delite. DH and I stopped in to get pizza (there's now a Salvatore's there, too), and I couldn't resist the cannoli doughnut, as I love cannoli. Delicious! And heavy!! They certainly didn't stint on the filling.
