I always love the patronizing, "if you don't like what I like, you're just too inexperienced or uninformed to know better" so many posters (on so many threads) take.

Homemade with homemade strawberry icing made with perfectly ripened strawberries picked out of the garden.

Lived in Warren for many years, and never had one. I will have to try it out next visit home.
Whomever said Fractured Prune, I respectfully disagree. Totally overrated. To be honest, I like all doughnuts, but the best I've had are Voodoo Doughnuts in Portland. OMG.

The donut I had when I really, really wanted a donut.

It was never a KK, which I think are OK, but maybe too sweet.

I've never had donuts as good as the ones you can buy in England.

When he was young, my Dad lived with extended family for a few years, and he raves about eating home-made oliebollen, aka Dutch doughnuts.

The cronut arrived in Montreal (Canada) about a year ago. I had my first one -- and, um, a dozen more -- at this fabulous pastry shop in Montreal's Little Italy. Custard-filled, praline-filled, pistachio-filled... all delicious. Thankfully, Little Italy is about a 40-minute drive for me, otherwise I'd be obese and diabetic.

Sadly, this tiny grocery store -- which is a five-minute WALK from my home -- started making them "in the back." A grocery store! It couldn't be good, right? Wrong. Not only was it fabulous, it was BETTER than the ones that I'd had in Little Italy. And did I mention that this tiny grocery store is a five-minute WALK from my house? It's been a terrible year.

And I don't even LIKE donuts!

Do you really love that or do you like being passive aggressive?
