A Nice Double National Day Today

What a nice confluence today. Don't get to use that word, confluence, all that often. It is National Doughnut Day and we've had some deep and meaningful discussions about our favorite donuts. My favorite is the good old Krispy Kreme. However, it is also National Chocolate Ice Cream Day. So along with my scoop I prefer a nice cake donut of some sort, maybe even a Dunkin Donut or two. How about you? It'd be a nice way to start the weekend.

It is also National Oklahoma Day but I'm sure you'll excuse me if I choose not to celebrate the Sooner state.

    Krispy Kreme hands down is the best doughnut but the Dunkin Donuts blueberry holes are very good as well.

    Combining donuts and ice cream holds no joy for me Chocolate and strawberry IC need to be consumed singly or In carefully thought out combinations. In case you were curious.

    So there was a doughnut thread not that long ago: I'm not a big doughnut guy to be honest but the talk on here got me looking at some of the places around the Atlanta area. I knew in theory that doughnuts, like cupcakes, had gotten gourmeted out but I had no idea how many places were around. I'll do some recs sometime maybe but a couple of thought:

    I'd NEVER been a cake donut guy. I had apparently never had a good one. I'm now a big fan of the sour cream old fashioned. Like any truly good food...simple done well can be great.

    That being said. I've now had a $3.50 donut. Brioche dough with a creme anglaise(I think) filling and torched brulee style sugar on top. Not something I might ever eat again but interesting.

    Some of the gormet places are good but only if they ADD to an already good product. A couple of trendy places in Buckhead disappointed in this regard. Covering up a crappy doughnut with a glaze is no bueno.

    Some of the best places are in random **** malls or next to gas stations.

    "Simple done well can be great" very true. Not a fan of too many things jazzed up. Like the sour creme old fashion also, glaze or not

    My church serves the volunteers donuts every Sunday morning and since Krispy Kreme is just above the church they went to them about making the donuts every Sunday but Krispy Kreme told them they couldn't provide that many donuts each Sunday and sent us to Dunkin. So Krispy Kreme does them for our middle and high school volunteers and Dunkin makes them for the babies and elementary volunteers. I may need to change where I volunteer since I like Krispy Kreme better. Panera provides our bagels and they are good as well.
