But for some reason they didn't sell well, so the store no longer sold them. I do have a couple other store-bought favorites, but nothing beats a Krispy Kreme as far as I'm concerned.

From time to time I make my own drop donuts, either cinnamon and sugar, or pumpkin flavored, and those are always good too! My family goes nuts over those drop doughnuts; especially our oldest daughter.
Not really a donut aficionado but I would agree with KK. I go by there and if the line is running I get them to bring me one (or two) before they spray them with that sugar coating. The fresh fried dough is awesome.

Britt's Donuts - Carolina Beach, NC | Yelp
And, they opened for the weekend on Good Friday!

As a side note, Café du Monde's beignet mix gives you a pretty good make-at-home alternative in its own right.

If you're older and lived in Ca. you'll know who I mean. The Helms man buttermilk donut was the best hands down. Gosh we were lucky to have this company drive to our homes and deliver their delicious baked goods. Looking at Wiki, I learned they sent the 1st bread into space on Apollo 11, cool.

they taste too good to be healthy
I don't eat them often but when I do, I will often get a tray of 6 and eat them all at once. I know that is so unhealthy.

A Honey Dip donut from Spunky Dunker's. Yeast raised. Their chocolate frosted yeast raised comes in a VERY close second.

They aren't so much strawberry topped as they are strawberry filled. And you know they're good because you can only get them in season.

It may be their most famous donut, but it's not my favorite. When the spring strawberry season is over, summer brings the peach donut, which is even better. So many great memories of 2AM donut runs.
you got. The fresh peach donuts were also great but yes, the strawberry one were everyone's favorite. They just had or have the best and have been featured on several TV programs.

oh I remember the old Helms man. As a kid I loved the chocolates; later my kids learned to love them as well. Those were the days, my friend as the song goes. I also remember the milk man and the Jewel Tea guy.
