What's happened to donuts?

housewolf | Jul 28, 2010 06:20 PM

I haven't had a good donut in years. Supermarket donuts are all inedible. Krispy Cremes are too doughy in my mouth and don't taste that great to me. The last Dunkin Donuts I had weren't good, either. I haven't found a good independent in quite a few years.

Is it just me, or do others who long for a good donut find them just as disappointing as I do? They all seem to have a nasty taste to them any more and coat my mouth with an unpleasant coating. I used to think it was just that the frying fat needed to be cleaned. Now I'm wondering if it's the zero-trans fat frying stuff that's being used today?

What do you think? Does zero-trans fat frying stuff impart an icky flavor to donuts now? Or what else might it be?
