This thread is obviously not for the health food nuts I normally eat pretty healthy (lost of veggies, fresh fruit, whole grains and legumes), but occasionally I like to eat a donut (some spell it doughnut). I was going to make this a poll, but thought it may be better to just talk about this delicacy that is so popular in the USA, (even now, after the bagels take over). My favorites are: Krispy Kreme (it's a pity they keep closing their shops) Dunkin Donuts (old company but I still like their donuts, although they too closed many shops) Tim Hortons (I only ate them in Canada; absolutely loved them!)- I heard they opened some shops in the USA on the east coast, but I am in the southwest. In addition, I found a listing of top 10 donut companies: Krispy Kreme Entenmann's Private Label Hostess Dolly Madison Little Debbie Merita Freihofer Tastykake Metz I don't recognize most of them (other than KK and Hostess). They must be in different parts of the country (USA). I do buy an occasional donut at local grocery stores but never cared a whole lot for them. My favorite recipe is my own- buy a plain cake donut, without anything on it, bake it slightly (or heat up in a microwave), and put two spoons of honey on it. Eat it warm. It's delicious! Let me hear what you enjoy, and please don't feel embarrassed about enjoying donuts.
