D is for Doughnuts

I managed to make three healthy food posts in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, but today I'm thinking we need some doughnuts!

Who doesn't like doughnuts, right?!  Here's the better question:  whose doughnuts are the best?

I've always been partial to Krispy Kreme doughnuts.  Founded in Winston-Salem, NC, these are the lightest, fluffiest, melt-in-your-mouth kind of doughnuts you can imagine.  They are best when they are hot.  Just look for the HOT NOW sign and you'll know that you have to have a dozen or two right that minute!  Yumm-O!

Some folks in our area swear by Dunkin' Donuts.  I don't think those folks are actually from here, transplants probably.  I admit that I have had a doughnut from DD on occasion, but I always go back to Krispy Kreme.  The fact that the location in downtown Raleigh was open 24 hours kept us going back many a midnight when in college.  How could you not gain the freshman fifteen with a Krispy Kreme nearby?!  My husband says that he and his college buddies would each get a dozen hot ones and each eat their dozen in one seating!  Sweet memories!

Whose doughnuts are your favorite?

Krispy Kreme are my favorites, but I can no longer eat them since I found out I was diabetic. Eat one for me next time you get some!
Nice writing! :)

My very favorite kind of doughnut isn't a doughnut at all but an apple fritter. That counts, doesn't it? If I HAVE to pick a doughnut, I will pick a cake doughnut... yum.

Krispy's are the very best! Britt's in Carolina Beach will do if you can't get to the nearest KK.
