Dammit, they're so good though, and I've never even had a hot one.

/I live in Quincy, MA. Home of the 1st Dunkin' Donuts. Still like Krispy's donuts better.

Krispy Kreme's donuts are not better. Whenever I ate a hot one (which is twice while they were open in Massachusetts) I felt like I had gotten diabetes right afterwards. They're awful, and I'm glad Krispy Kreme is gone. Down in Rhode Island they have Tim Horton's and their donuts suck too.

TeddyRooseveltsMustache: whose donuts don't suck then? They closed the only Krisy Kreme shop in Calgary (where I was a regular) and since then I haven't eaten a single donut. I used to like Tim Horton's donuts but some time around 3 or 4 years ago I noticed that they started to add a whole lot of suck to the recipe or something and now the only thing I can eat there is the soup.

Anybody remember the Krispy Kreme IPO? That had to be some serious insider/market fraud. The stock was treated like the company had figured out how to shiat gold.

What the hell did the prospectus say to convince investors of that valuation? "Based on US trends over the past 20 years, we expect donuts to be the greatest growth industry EVAR. By 2030, Americans average weight will be 400 pounds, with world per capita weight increasing to 250 pounds."

That still sounds pretty likely.

i do. and i remember when the accounting irregularities started and their claiming the new diet donuts not selling caused their profits go from sky high to in the basement in 1 quarter.

I don't know whose donuts don't suck. If you want to find out, why don't you follow a cop car?

Cops got no taste. They are always hanging around Tim Horton's around here. I guess I shall continue to live a now donutless existance. I suppose my arteries are happy.

Tim Horton's stopped baking donuts fresh in store, and started mass producing them in Ontario, freezing and shipping.

That's why the donuts are terrible.

Krispy Kreme? That's all you got? Jack in the Box is now deep frying macaroni and cheese and serving them up in them in chunky, sauce-dipping bites.

And they even make eggrolls at lunch time....fried up in the donut grease, so they're slightly sweet on the outside.

OM NOM NOM on Mom 'n Pop donut shops. Corporate donuts suck ass.

I've missed Winchell's Donuts ever since I moved to Maryland. I did, however, recently find a small chain called The Fractured Prune which is pretty good.

I've never figured out why Dunkin Donuts are so popular. They're not bad, just meh.
