I am not a fancy or a complicated person. I like the glazed donuts. The yeast ones. When I worked at Mr. Donut we called them "Honey Dipped".

My blood sugar went up 30 points just from reading this thread! :laugh:



I put my glazed donuts at work in the microwave for five to ten seconds...single layer...

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh they taste fresh made!!!

Jam doughnut, pineapple doughnut or just the plain warm doughnuts rolled in cinamon and sugar.

And if I go to Krispy Kreme I just get the plain glazed doghnut.

Have always loved doughnuts, since I was a kid, and regularly buy the cinamon rolled doughnuts from the supermarket.

But......have never dunked a doughnut in coffee or tea or any other liquid.

Thanks for starting this poll, Lynne!

I realized when filling it out that I tend to prefer plainish donuts. That is, the aspect of something being a donut in and of itself supercedes the need for any need for further flavor embellishment -- with two important exceptions, blueberry and pumpkin.

In the spring/summer, I'll eat just about anything blueberry, and in the fall/winter, I'll eat anything pumpkin

Other than that, the less fussy stuff the better. No jimmies, no frosting -- especially no chocolate! even though in other contexts I love chocolate.l I did make an exception for Boston creme.

I see three of my favorites right there!



I love the chocolate cake with (or without) frosting, the jelly (so basic, so uncomplicated, so satisfying ) and my favorite, chocolate frosting WITH 'sprinkles,' please! (Katherine, we New Yorkers no nothing about 'jimmies,' unless somebody wants to jimmy a locked door -  ::))




Uhm...how many hours until it opens? There's a DD on the corner of First Avenue and 56th Street....

(Has anyone tried the Hot (White) Chocolate on an especially cold day? Yum!)

I picked cinnamon, old fashioned cake, and glazed.  I love donuts...don't dunk them tho.  Not too many donut shops in Christchurch so don't get to try many kinds.  These are just ones I remember from my days in Calgary many years ago.  yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....

We have them here, and they're called "Dunkin' Munchkins" when served at Dunkin Donuts.

:laugh: :laugh:  I hear you.  I like some a little bit fancy, but I draw the line at jimmies or sprinkles!   ;)


well what's wrong with "jimmies' or "sprinkles"?
