There's are NO Donut shops in our arera that are owned or ran by Cambodians.

In fact, besides the few KK and DD, there are very very few Donut Shops.

All the Grocery Stores Chains in our area have added Bakery Departments to their stores, this has eliminated most all Mom and Pops Donut shops, there are a few left in South Bend, Elkhart, Mishawka, Grand Rapids, Kalkamazoo and Battle Creek.

The Chains that have the In-store bakeries are Kroger's WalMart, Target, Sam's Club, Meijer's and Martins.

    Awww.. Dunkin donuts...they can taste gross or good...depends on the franchise and who makes them. I love Dawn Doughnuts...from the Michigan area...great family memories..Also there is a family bakery in Dexter MI that makes awesome glazed ones and also real German soft pretzels...We really don't have any doughnuts shops in the Ann Arbor area worth mentioning, not even a Dunkin...don't ever eat Dom doughnuts....ewwwww!

      Six months ago, you couldn't find a Krispy Kreme donut around Columbia. Now, they are ubiquitous. Every convenience store and grocer in town carries them. Even the smaller Wal-Marts have a Krispy Kreme counter.

      They are made in Kansas City, so we don't get them hot. And from what I've tasted, I sure don't understand why they are so popular. People pay 50 percent more to get a glazed donut that is just half the size of the donuts made locally. What's up with that?

        Try this place and then ask yourself if you will ever go near a DD or a KK?

            I stopped into a DD located inside a mini mart gas station type, and got 2 old fashioned to go, got in the truck and reached for one and it was hard as a golf ball.
            I took them back inside and told the guy, and he said "oh, they're all hard, the bakery is 15 miles up the road and they bring them down."..
            GAG...
            He asked if I wanted something else, and i just looked at him and left the bag on the counter, and walked out.. Didnt even want my $1.80 back. Yeah, for 2 golf balls.. $1.80!
            They would have hurt someone if I had thrown them.
            Gimme a fluffy KK glazed anyday!

                As soon as a KK glazed doughnut becomes cool, it's just a sponge with grease inside wrapped in sugar.

                KK at a mini mart fare no better.

                And let's be honest...If the doughnut was really "golf ball hard," then it wasn't just because DD was 15 miles away. I'm sure it's because the doughnuts were way more than a day old. I don't think the mini mart clerk was being all that truthful to you.

                  no, no. I'm sure the place has great bread and other baked goods.
                  But, this thread is about doughnuts and that place doesn't sell 'em.

                  Now, since I lived in NC, I am pretty confident that many people who go to that place, also go to Krispy Kreme for a doughnut since KK in NC is a friggin staple.

                    And what's wrong with that? Besides, they don't have any Yuppies in North Carolina!

                      Just went to Dunkin' Donuts this morning to pick up a pound of their coffee. Also picked up a box of "Munchkins" to have with our coffee. Yuck! Very dry and not good. I get better donut holes from a box of Entenmann's. Krispy Creme fairs much better than DD IMHO.

                        Krispy Kreme! Gotta love a free donut! We don't even have any Dunkin Donuts around these parts.
