I'm excited because a Krispy Kreme is opening near us and I can finally get a decent donut around here. As a southern boy, I really don't like Dunkin Donuts product. Krispy kicks their butts..

What is your favorite donut chain? Or do you have some awesome local place that beats the chains that we who love donuts need to know about?

Looks pretty tasty from the website, but don't think I'll have a chance to try them anytime soon....

Munchkins are evil because you can just pop one in your mouth while your walking by them!

We tried TH on the way home from a moe show in Utica. I thought it was good, but not amazing.

That definitely looks good.

I guess I should also mention that my personal comparisons are based on glazed donuts. I don't usually go for the fancier ones.

I used to stop by the Krispy Kreme at 3 am when the hot light was on. Dozen glazed, still warm, with a glass of milk. Didn't always mix well with all the beer I had already had.... :lol:

I've never cared for Krispy Kreme, never got the people. I tried it a few times when we had one in Albany, it closed after about 2 years in business. You can guess what the building is now! :lol:

I prefer an old fashioned donut served with a cheap ass cup of coffee with lots of cream and sugar while sitting in a booth at a mom and pop joint. If the waitress is a mid-50s broad wreaking of cigarettes; even better.

I dont always eat donuts, but when I do, i go to Franks Restaurant in Asbury Park for jelly and boston cream donuts that are the size of a small plate, just about the best handmade donut around.

Theres actually a DD directly across Main from Franks, ive never even thought of going in it tho.

Sweet Krispy Kreme worker surprises man on quest for rejection



A man's quest to overcome his fear of rejection by making at least one crazy request a day for 100 days was throttled last week when a Krispy Kreme employee accepted his order for five doughnuts linked together in the colors and shape of the Olympic symbol.

"It's only my third day and I have already failed," Jia Jiang wrote on his 100 Days of Rejection Therapy blog. "But I did so with such amazement and happiness."

When the 31-year-old approached the register to make his "specialized" doughnut order, Jackie Braun, a shift leader at an Austin, Texas, Krispy Kreme, asked him when he would need it.

"In the next 15 minutes," Jiang replied.

"I was honestly just hoping for a 'no' and to go home," Jiang told Yahoo News in an interview on Monday.

Instead, Braun spent several minutes using the back of some receipt paper to diagram the unusual order.

"Let me see what I can do," she said.

Fifteen minutes later, she emerged with a Krispy Kreme box with the glazed Olympic ring arrangement inside—and, astonishingly, did not charge Jiang for it.

"It wasn't exactly what he wanted," Braun told Yahoo News. "To my eyes, it wasn't perfect, so I didn't think I should charge him for it. It was the best I could do in the time allotted."

"Wow, Jackie, I'm a fan," Jiang told her, on behalf of everyone in America.

"I was overwhelmed, I couldn't believe it," Jiang said. "I went home and tweeted to Krispy Kreme and blogged about it. I wanted the world to know about what she did."

A campaign to get Braun a raise and promotion was quickly launched in the YouTube comments section underneath Jiang's video.

"Jackie is awesome," more than one viewer wrote. "The world needs more people like her."

"Yo, if Krispy Kreme doesn't promote her to CEO I'm boycotting!" wrote another. "And I love doughnuts."

Jiang, who launched a Facebook page called "Give Jackie at Krispy Kreme a Raise," said he returned to Krispy Kreme on Sunday to thank Braun for going above and beyond the call of doughnut duty.

Braun, though, said she didn't do anything out of the ordinary.

"It was a simple thing," Braun, who's been with Krispy Kreme for five years, said. "The Olympic symbol was the only unusual part, because they're not on TV right now. But we do orders like that every day. We're here to make people happy."

Chain wise would pick TH.. as for donuts Tabbooma believes they should be kept minimal and not covered with all kinds of garbage... Give Tabbooma a nice glazed donut from Neils in Wallingford and Tabbooma is one happy man ;)

if we can bring up non-accessible options...

Freddie's Donuts in Buffalo was great. All the convenience stores carried them, glazed that tasted like maple sugar...mmmmm

but sadly, the bakery closed.

That place looks totally cool. Too bad it didn't make it. Might have made a great road trip stop...
