A little portable shack at a swap meet in Oxford. It was just big enough for the guy to stand in with some supplies, and there was a machine cranking out small donuts that he fried in oil and rolled in granulated sugar. A wax paper bag of maybe six donuts cost a quid. Delicious, crispy, piping hot. That was 20 years ago and still the best donuts ever!

I didn't like the Krispy Kremes. Neither did anyone else, apparently. They closed up shop here.
Best doughnuts are Polish Paczki, filled with apricot or plum, and dusted with icing sugar. There's a little Polish bakery near me that makes amazing Paczki, but you have to get there really early.

I agree. Do not like them at all.

The best I've had is from a local place called Banbury Cross. Raised are my favorite - you've got to eat the bottom and sides, then eat the middle, then eat the top. Old Fashioned are my second favorite, and then there are some cinnamon claws or whatever they're called.

It wasn't Dunkin Donuts, Krispy Kreme or any of the other bland, mass-produced donut chains out there. It was always the local mom & pop places that have the best donuts.

Bear claws? I like those, and also apple or cherry fritters. We sometimes get those from an Amish bakery, and they're pretty good.

Dear Edwardsvanderbosch:

Pox on you! It is 11:40PM and now that you've put the hot Krispy Kreme Donut in my mind, I MUST go out and get one!

The four food groups: Processed sugar, white flour, salt, and lard.
