all this talk about donuts made me think of the Krispy Kreme chain here in the south. Most of what they sell are simple glazed donuts that are soft and tasty. I've heard the best way to eat them is fresh, in the store. They put it in front of you fresh, and the donut is hot and very soft--- almost to be eaten with a fork.
i've only had them out of the box but they taste good to me, a nice contrast to Dunkin's heavier cake donuts--- and i generally don't care for donuts at all.
