The ones we made as children. Pop open a tube of biscuits, separate, drop in hot oil, flip, when nice and golden shake them in a brown paper bag with granulated sugar. Noni (my grandma) would take a piping tube and fill some of them with strawberry or grape preserves. I liked them without the filling.

cream filled long john that was somehow still warm from the deep frier. Best donuts ever are warm from the deep frier. Eating them that way makes one aware of just how fattening they are though. Other then that I don't care too much as long as they are FRESH and not day old.

I enjoy Bavarian Kreme from Dunkin Donuts. I'm upset because I recently tried a Vanilla Kreme and it paled in comparison.

Mom and Pop Donut Shop. Broad St. and Olney Ave. Philadelphia. May 25 1977

It was the best because it was the first time I had ever tried a white cream filled chocolate donut.

I know it was May 25th because it was one of only two days I had ever played hookie from school.

I went to see the Star Wars premier.

The farmer's market in my town in SoCal had a stand where they made mini-donuts dusted with sugar & cinnamon, a small bag of them hot, fresh, just made...heaven.

Yuck @ Krispy Kreme -- not my kind of donut. I totally agree with the poster who said that the donut of youth will forever shape your opinions on what a donut should be. I grew up in the 80s in So Cal, where Winchells reigned supreme so cake donuts (like the ones they serve at Dunkin) are my idea of what a donut should be. The best I've had are the independents -- I've had good ones across America. One of my current favorite donut shops is Varsity Donuts in Manhattan, Kansas. Fantastic donuts. Just sublime.

From Hoehns Bakery in Baltimore, MD.
Welcome - Hoehn's Bakery - Baltimore


Been there since 1927 and its a really old school bakery. The ladies that work there are basically all grandmoms that call you 'hon when you walk in. I can't stand all of the fluorescently colored doughnuts, ones that try to get creative with their icings, or ones with trendy fillings or toppings. Just give me a plain doughnut with a cup of coffee and I'm good. Hoehns plain doughnuts are out of this world.

Velvet Creme. Not Krispy Kreme but Velvet Creme. It was closed for years and years but when I just googled it now, it's BACK! Wow. I will be visiting them if I ever go to Miami.

Anyhow I grew up eating there as a child. Their doughnuts are the best, especially when that Fresh Doughnuts neon light was on.
