I am in a doughnut wasteland. Nothing here compares to "Daylight Donuts" back home in OK. They made the best! Nothing like their Bearclaws! They were HUGE!

I usually satisfy myself with a Bavarian Cream filled Bismark or Long John. If I can find a decent Bearclaw, I'll make that my next favorite. After that, I'm not to picky.

I've had Krispy Kreme, as well as Cafe du Monde in New Orleans. I'm not really impressed with Krispy Kremes, as they're kind of small, and since we don't have one around here, they're never fresh. Cafe du Monde is good, although a couple beigniets aren't filling enough for me. Krispy Kreme and Cafe du Monde (beigniets and chickory) hold an edge in the market because their products are extremely fresh, usually having been made within minutes of your purchase.

I'm not a huge donut eater but when I do I usually grab the one thats sort of flat with a cream cheese like center. Again, I don't remember the name but my taste buds recall the flavor as I type. If their not available I will then grab me an apple fritter.

I'm partial to the free ones the suppliers bring into the office during the week.

About the only donuts I don't like are the ones with the fake white cream stuff in them. It tastes like pure shortening & sugar.YUCK!! Some of my favorites are blueberry filled, chocolate glazed, custard eclares, sour cream cake, chocolate cake, plain glazed, & donut holes. I love when Krispy Kreme has their Hot & Fresh sign on & hubby picks some up on his way home from work. There's also a place in the town where I grew up called Carolina Cream & they have the best apple fritters with big chunks of apples in them!

Around here, crewsk, they're a long donut that's often filled with custard or that shortening-type filling and topped with chocolate icing. Sometimes you can find them with no filling and either white or chocolate icing on top.

My favorites are either the chocolate glazed or the glazed that's rolled in toasted coconut. Although I'd be hard-pressed to turn down any kind of donut!
