“What do you think about Krispy Kreme donuts?” asked Rob, a coworker of mine.
“Eh, they’re OK,” I responded.
“Just OK?” he persisted.
“The plain glazed are fine. I’d give them 6 out of 10.”
“That’s not so bad.”
“The rest of their donuts are gross. The filled Krispy Kremes are horrible. They have the worst fillings, like colored glue. Blech. They’re just sick. “
“I bet you like the donuts from Smith’s.”
“That’s disgusting. I’d rather eat dirt than a donut from Smith’s.”
“Dirt?” Jackie said, “You’d rather eat dirt?”
“Well, not dirt, but I’d rather eat nothing than a donut from Smith’s. I’ve turned them down before and will again. Daylight Donuts, those are delicious. Anyone here Canadian? How about Tim Horton’s? But Krispy Kremes aren’t good.”
Another co-worker chimed in and said, “Wow! I’ve never seen you this passionate about an opinion before!”
Gosh, the sound of all of your jaws hitting the keyboard at the same time is deafening. He’s never seen me that passionate about an opinion? Contain yourselves, laughter that loud is unseemly.
The donut discussion continued to heat the cubes: what’s good, what’s bad, where’s good, and where’s bad. It was decided, mostly by Brawley Avalon, that we should have a donut taste-off. So dear readers, tell me, where do you go for donuts? Is there a hidden gem that we must include in our blind test? Am I wrong about Krispy Kreme filled donuts being the pastry of the weak and tasteless? Are you all about Banbury Cross? Whose donuts reign supreme?
(I’ll probably make spudnuts for the taste test.)
(They’re really good.)
(Yes, with actual potatoes.)
(Donut or doughnut?)
