It's weird, I guess, but I am indifferent about Krispy Kreme donuts. They're too greasy and melty. I prefer cake donuts to yeast.

I'm not a donut aficionado, although I did try a maple-bacon donut from Duck Donuts in OBX last weekend...it was mighty damn good. And I imagine one day I will try another one. But the only donut that I seriously cannot resist - I mean, if someone walks up and waves them in front of me - would be a hot Krispy Kreme. And even as good as those are, I rarely have them. I just can't eat like that any more.

Sour cream donuts is a cake donut but with sour cream in the mix. I don't like sour cream but I do like these donuts. It gives the outside a more crusty texture and the inside is moist.
I have never had a Krispy Kreme but I heard they are good hot.
Growing up though they were not my favorite it was fun to go get Cider donuts which were hot at the cider mill.

Hey - don't leave us hanging, there's a story here, and I would like to hear it. What about that cider mill?

You are funny. In MI from Labor Day till I think Thanksgiving they are open. I think the donuts are cinnamon with cider in the mix. They make them there and you can see it being done. They come hot and the bag gets greasy from them. They have a slight crunch that I thought was apple pieces but it may just be the texture. You really need to eat them right away. They have of course have fresh cider, caramel apples so forth. Just a fun place to take the family.

Thanks for providing more of a mental picture - I'm down here in Dixie, and we don't have anything like that. I would LOVE to taste those cider donuts.

Winchell's, SoCal, '70's, 3:00 a.m. donut runs with the roomies after all-night study sessions. My personal favorite was devil's food donut with chocolate frosting washed down with hot chocolate, never gained a pound, those were the days!

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.
I too loved the peach filled or topped ones, but I always think "strawberry" for some reason. They are still there cause they were featured on Food Network about a year or so ago. Of course the original owner, I am sure is long gone. Hubby was raised in Glendora, we lived in Altadena, Arcadia and Glendora as well as Covina, before we left CA. I lived in west Pasa and went to school both in Pasa and Eagle Rock. That is why I also think of Winchell's donuts and why I am in love with Trader Joes.

Hot Krispy Kremes right off the assembly line is without question the best I've ever had. The next best was in Round Rock, TX at Round Rock Doughnuts, they have an apple fritter that's out of this world.

A mom-and-pop store in my town called The Donut. Double chocolate cake-style is just the best, with peanuts sprinkled on top even better! When I held department meetings for the drivers at my old job I could guarantee they'd show up if I brought a box from The Donut.
