I joked to my bf that I have a doughnut diet - when I walk by doughnut shops while out running errands, I only buy one if they have French Crullers. More often than not, they don't have any (sometimes not even old fashioneds!) so I don't buy (or eat) a doughnut. If they do have one, I'll buy it as a treat, since we rarely ever get doughnuts.
However, it makes me wonder if the French Cruller is not a popular type of doughnut so they don't make as many as glazed? Or are they so popular they sell out early in the morning and the shops don't make more? Or is it just not as cost effective to make them, so they're produced only in the morning and not throughout the day like with the regular doughnuts?
Anyone know why my favorite doughnut isn't as available as the others?
ps - it's not really a successful diet, as there are plenty of other treats I enjoy, but at home and when dining out. =)
