Part of the Blogging A to Z Challenge. I’m blogging every day in April, except Sundays, thematically from A to Z. Find out more here.

Now on to one of my favorite indulgences. Donuts. A greasy puff of heavenly delight. I can’t eat just one. Which is why I never eat them! There is a debate going on about which is better. Krispy Kreme or Dunkin’ Donuts. Raised in the Northeast, I am a Dunkin’ Donut gal all the way, but my Kentucky relatives argue that point (this leads to another debate of White Castle but we’ll go there another time).
Krispy Kreme’s signature item is their glazed donut served warm, originating from a 1930s recipe when the company was formed. Dunkin’ Donuts was created in the 1950s with more of their sales coming from coffee then donuts. And just why is it that a cup of Dunkin’ Donut coffee can never be duplicated at home?
Deal breaker: Krispy Kreme, light and airy. Dunkin’ Donuts, a heavy chunk of love. Give me heavy!
My last meal on Earth would have to be a turkey dinner with all the trimmings, followed by all the donuts I could eat! I’ll take a box of Entenmann’s chocolate donuts if nothing else. Just don’t expect any to be left. The best Fall treat is fresh baked apple cider donuts served hot. Crave them too? The #1 place to get this is Indian Ladder Farms, in Altamont, New York.
It’s been awhile since I’ve been in Dunkin’ Donuts. When I do walk by one in the Mall I breathe deep of rich fried goodness. Then I walk on.
America may be running on Dunkin’ but I remember when it was time to make the donuts. Do you run on Dunkin’ or Krispy Kreme?
