Shayna's Mom, you're scaring me... first you talk about
Wolfie's Pennyland in Atlantic City (where I played and worked) on another thread about Hot Dogs, and now you happen to mention the first KK I'd ever been to, on Rte 1 in Langhorne PA just below the PA Tpke. My college roomate and I would drive up there (from Temple U. dorms) early on Saturday mornings and wait to meet my brother in front, then we'd drive to pick up fresh hot soft pretzels in Hatboro and drive to the Englishtown, NJ Farmer's Mkt. to sell 'em.
Funny thing is, we'd stare at that dripping, sugary, glazing machine and it didn't look good to us at ALL... now, I am
a donut fan, raised on Dunkin's in Atlantic City (Bavarian Cream!) (also Mammy's, and Horn and Hardarts in Philly), etc.
We were never tempted to go into that KK, which my brother says is long gone.
Krispy Kremes are opening up here now in CA like crazy, but I don't know, they're not thrilling - people buy 'em by the box and bring them to work - sometimes I eat one, and remember... I keep remembering that glazing machine at 6am on Route 1...
Good donuts in CA: Yum Yum when they're fresh, Chinese donuts at Sam Wo's in SF Chinatown (thanks again to my brother for finding that place), and believe it or not, Miss Donuts, the little donut shop on Sherman Way (near Reseda Blvd.) in Reseda, CA that was used for the donut shop robbery scene (where Buck Swope (Don Cheadle) stops by in the middle of it) in the movie Boogie Nights.
Originally posted by shaynas_mom Howdy; saw the post about apple cider doughnuts and wanted to recommend Springdale Farms in Cherry Hill, NJ http://www.springdalefarms.com/bakery.asp. It's what you'd call an upscale family farm stand lol; but ohhhh I remember those apple cider doughnuts in the wax paper bag. It's a trigger food for me, and I'm on Weight Watchers, so I have to stay away from them.
When I was little, we'd stop at Krispy Kreme on Route 1 in Langhorne on the way up to the business my dad owned, and it was like heaven for me then. Now they distribute them to Shop Rite supermarkets and I pick them up on the way to my brother's home which is ironically super-close to that old Krispy Kreme location.
