My wife and I were talking the other day and we realized that we never hear about locally owned doughnut shops/bakeries in the area . It is not just a Rock Hill thing either. It doesn't seem Charlotte has a lot either. Are we just missing them, or are they not big in the South?

No one in their right minds want to compete with Krispy Kreme. When you can buy a sweet taste of heaven for just a few coins, why would anyone shop elsewhere?

Not everyone wants donuts that are loaded with crap.

Nutritional Information

You'll notice they omit trans fat from their nutrition facts. I wonder why...

Details, details... You want to live forever? I've eaten 'em in moderation for over 40 years. Enjoyed every bite. If you take away all the good things in life, what's left?

I miss all the Italian bakeries in western NY. You just don't find any down here. Cupcrazed in Baxter makes a good cupcake though.

I've never been there myself, but I've passed this place a few times and I want to check it out.

I attended a wedding recently and Carswell Bakery supplied the wedding cake. It was delicious. I've never been there. They are located on Mt Gallant Rd in Rock Hill.

Just thinking of Krispy Kreme donuts makes me want to hurl. I'm a sugar junkie, but they are the worst donuts ever. They coat your mouth with grease that sticks all day. But I'm not here to yuck on anyone else's yum. To each their own. I do miss the mom n' pop bakeries. I guess if you've never had donuts from them, then you just don't know. But I've really got nothing to complain about. So I can't have a good donut. There's more to life.
