    Look at these! How do you decide between cake and yeast? Double chocolate and nutty donuts are cake. The custard, jelly, date nut squares are yeast. It is like asking which testicle you like best.

    I guess I would say... which of your own personal set of twins would you favor? I like both my boys equally and hope I will never be forced to choose between them.

    KK are "okay", but nothing extra. Winchell's suck. Never been in a Dunkin'. I second Cinnabon if I can get there just as they're coming out of the oven and intercept them BEFORE they put icing on them - I'm a cinnamon roll junkie, but never saw the sense in icing.

    I don't get the cult following KK has - just like I don't get the cult following In-N-Out has. Neither is bad, but neither is particularly good either.

    Best donuts come from independents - there's an outfit in Santa Cruz, Ca called Red's Donuts which is to die for...

    They're "Ok", but pretty much the same thing as I could get at the stock car races. They'll do in a pinch, but I'd rather go to a Carl's Jr or a Whattaburger.

    Doesn't have much to do with Donuts, but next time you're at a Whataburger, try the Sweet n Spicey Bacon Burger. I can't get over them. Also get a Coffee Malt and a hot fried apple pie.

    Not sure I really know the difference between yeast donuts or cake donuts.
    Yeast donuts are lighter and fluffier, Think yeast roll vs. a devils food cake
    consistency wise.

    Now I'm hungry for (a non-chain) donuts. Just Googled and there is a small bakery nearby with a small selection of donuts. Maybe I'll stop on the way home from work some morning.........

    When I was a kid, there was a local company that used potato flour to make their yeast donuts, and had kids selling them door to door on Saturday morning. They were called Spudnuts, and sold for a 10 or 15 cents a bag. I think there were four in a bag, maybe six. They were great.

    What in the world have you been smoking? Carl's jr?

    Where I used to live, there was a Carl's jr. in town. It was the only fast food place in town. After a while, their burger patties began to taste like cardboard to me. I think they drown them in mayo, mustard and ketchup just to disguise that.

    As for Whataburger, I couldn't wait to get back to some place that had these joints. After the move, we ate at the local joint once, and were extremely disappointed. I remember they used to be very good.

    Another disappointment was Schlotzsky's. I used to love those things, but the last two times I've tried them it just wasn't the way I remembered.

    When I did a lot of work in the Austin area I loved Chuys and Schlotzkys. Both have sold out and gone franchising with locations up here in NC. I raved about Chuys to a lot of people and then first time I ate at one up here I was soooooo disappointed ... Schlotzkys did the same thing but not quite as bad.

    Of the two choices, cake... but the one I choose over all others is the sour cream doughnut, preferably glazed.

    I like both. But with yeast only glazed or chocolate iced. With cake donuts I like the different variety. I don't mind the sour creme at Dunkin, get 1 every other week or so. If I'm near by, I really like LaMar's donuts, usually get the monthly special cake donut. They also make great fritters the size of a dinner plate, especially the pineapple

    I like yeast, mainly because you can get them with cream in the middle. Those and french cruellers are deadly to me.
