Those were good, but I was so light-headed at that altitude I didn't fully enjoy them.

Hardly a donut connoisseur. I honestly couldn't tell the difference between Dunkin Donuts, Krispy Kremes or Yum Yum. But I do love the vanilla creme filled donuts..... unfortunately local Yum Yum is always out of them. Gonna have to find another donut store I guess.

I have also tried Walmart donuts and they aren't as good plus they don't sell vanilla creme filled donuts. Anyone know why?

In El Dorado, Arkansas there is a Spud-Nut shop that makes the lightest and fluffiest potato flour donuts. They just melt in your mouth. So, so good! We treated ourselves to Spud-nuts the last time we were down there visiting family and arrived as they were taking them out of the fryer, so we brought 2 dozen for the trip home...you know, in case we broke down or something.

Krispy Kreme were very tasty. Trouble is because I got diagnosed with Celiac Disease since then, I can't have them any more.

There's a small boulangerie up north that makes outstanding potato doughnuts.
Not too sweet.

there is a donut shop in Glendora, CA. I can't remember the name, but it is on the left hand side of the street on Foothill blvd, going east. It makes the top 10 list every year, lots of lists: best donut: strawberry topped; otherwise I type of donut I like: buttermilk donuts and years ago I loved Winhrchell's donuts, but I think they are long gone. I only like C. Cream when they are hot: otherwise they are too greasy.

Years ago, I walked into a meeting at work and there was a box of glazed donuts on the table in a white box.

I ate one and after doing so, I thought to myself "that is one of the best donuts I have ever had."

On the way out the door after the meeting, I noticed a Krispy Kreme box lid in the trash.

Now here is the weird part - I had never tasted a KK donut before that day, AND the only KK that was in my city had not yet opened, but someone at my office knew someone who worked there, and they were able to get a box to bring to work that day. In addition, that KK store was 15 miles away in a totally different part of town.

So it was truly a blind taste test. I would have never even thought there could BE KK donuts at my work.

And it did live up the hype I had heard about before then.

The ones my mom made from scratch and fried in a dutch oven full of lard on the stove.

Their bakery is a close second.
The pickled garlic seems high dollar, 'til you eat it. The local Asian store sells pickled garlic for like 16 bucks.

Jelly donut with granulated sugar (some people call this a Bismarck) from Traub's Bakery in Prospect Park, PA. I also love a raspberry jelly-filled beignet from Sarafina's in St. Martin.
