Stale!!!! Mon, 01/23/06 10:03 AM (permalink)
I checked out two independent donut places Sunday AM. I was going to write something nice about the places that manage to compete with Dunkin Donuts, every day. One is within sight of a Dunkey, and the other, near a highway exit, is the only doughnut place for several miles. The place near the Dunky's had 2 sitdown customers, plus me when I went in. The Dunky had a line to get into the parking lot. DD has never served me a stale donut.......they are not great, but they are fresh. Both of the donuts that I got at the independent places were on the edge of stale. They were stale enough for me to suspect that they were made on Saturday. I should have gone to Butler's to see how the new owners are doing.
I know that we all love to hate the chains, but some of the small places are not better by virtue of being small.

    Sorry to hear that. Can you say which ones you tried out?

    Butler's is doing just fine with the new owners as I have found out several times by now !

    The most noticeable change is the hours. They are now open seven days a week from 7 to 5 I think.
    I got some cream donuts, a few longjohns (made right then and there since the lady in front of me bought 17! Thankfully I only wanted 3), a few jelly and some french crullers. All were fantastic!
